The Doctors weigh in on alleged ways to treat hypothyroidism, a condition where the thyroid gland does not secrete enough hormones.
Some believe detox diets and the use of things like white sea moss can cure the condition -- which can lead to weight gain, fatigue, dry skin, constipation and muscle weakness -- but are these alleged treatments just hoaxes?
Social media posts claim moss, which is high in iodine, can treat hypothyroidism. The Doctors note that being iodine-deficient could be linked to the condition, but also explain if someone is not iodine-deficient and they take too much iodine, it can be very harmful to your health. They also say iodine deficiency is very rare in America.
They also note how the body regulates hormones is a very delicate balance and if you are struggling with issues like weight gain or fatigue to see your doctor and get your blood levels checked, which is key in order to properly determine what may be causing the issue.
