Fatigue, Poor Sleep, and Low Thyroid – A Connection?

Written by Wellness Club on October 2, 2008 – 2:22 pm -

Gary recently wrote us to ask about whether low thyroid function could be causing his low energy and sleep problems and to describe his self-help protocol to us. Of course, as ever, we just cannot make specific recommendations for someone who is not working with Dr. Myatt as a patient, but there is plenty of good general information available on our website nonetheless.

Here is Dr. Myatt’s reply to Gary:

Hi Gary,

If you have low thyroid function, then you really should get your iodine levels tested. Even if you are on thyroid hormone — in fact, especially if you are on thyroid hormones — there’s a 99.9% chance that you are iodine deficient. And don’t expect your conventional doctor to order this test. We don’t “do” iodine testing and replacement in conventional medicine! Taking iodine if you are found to be low could literally change your life. Here’s the scoop:

Of course, a deficiency of any required nutrient (vitamins, minerals, trace minerals) can cause low energy and disturbed sleep. Please make sure that you are taking a good multiple vitamin / mineral formula with optimal doses of nutrients. Here is what “optimal” looks like: (scroll to the vitamin chart on the bottom of the page for optimal dose ranges).

High carb diets are a common cause of exhaustion and insomnia. A simple diet change can often “cure” said problems.

Of course, if your “do-it-yourself” program isn’t helping, I am available for telephone consultations.
My staff and I have helped a lot of people, many in very dire circumstances, and we’ve never even seen most of them “in the flesh”!

Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes for you.

In Health,
Dr. Myatt
