tine thyroid blood tests are often in the "normal range." Classically, Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome sufferers are going along fine in their lives, and then they go through some major stress, develop symptoms of Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome and are never the same. They often develop numerous burdensome complaints, like those listed on the cover. In this book, each symptom is characterized so thoroughly, that you'll get a good idea of what it feels like to have Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome. Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome is especially brought on by stresses such as: childbirth (#1 cause), divorce, death of a loved one, job or family stress, surgery or accidents, excessive dieting, and others. Some people are more prone to developing Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome than others. Their symptoms may come on earlier in life, and tend to worsen more gradually over time, they may not even know what it feels like to be normal. It seems that those who are most prone to developing WTS are those whose ancestors survived famine, such as Irish, Scot, Welsh, American Indian, Russian, etc. Most susceptible of all seem to be those who are part Irish, and part American Indian. But under severe circumstances people of any nationality can develop Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome. It seems that about 80% of Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome sufferers are women. In this book, Dr. Wilson gives his explanation as to why. It's easy to predict whether or not a person has a low body temperature, based on his/her symptoms and how and when they came on. If people have a story that ’ s just classic for Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome then the chances of their temperature not averaging below 98.6 degrees is less than one in two hundred. In fact, most of them by far, will average 97.8 and lower (>92%). How Your Low Body Temperature Could Be Causing So Many Different Symptoms... Check it with a thermometer. The efficiency of all the chemical reactions taking place in your body vitally depends on your body temperature. Virtually all of these chemical reactions depend on properly functioning enzymes to take place as they should. How an enzyme functions depends on its temperature as well as its structure. When enzymes are too hot they get too loose and when they are too cold they get too tight, but when they are just the right temperature they are just the right shape and function with the most ease. When the temperature is too hot, too cold, or unsteady, the enzymes will spend less time in their optimal shape—which simply translates into having a less than optimal metabolism. So, for the body's enzymes to work at peak efficiency the body temperature has to be just right. Thus, the body temperature is like one critical card at the bottom that can't be moved too much without bringing down the whole house of cards. And in this way, low body temperatures are more than enough to explain numerous burdensome complaints. (Of course, Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome is not the only possible explanation for each symptom but because it can be so debilitating, and yet is so common, easily recognized, and easily treated, it should be considered first, not last). Doctors have long been concerned about patients having very high fevers, because it is well known that high fevers (i.e. 106 degrees) can cause denaturing (malforming) of the enzymes, brain damage, and even death. Likewise, if a person is pulled out of an icy lake and has a temperature of less than 85 degrees, doctors consider it a medical emergency because warming will be necessary for survival. It is also clear that body temperatures 1 to 1-1/2 degrees above normal [of 98. 6] can produce familiar symptoms of fever. Similarly, body temperatures that run 1 to 1-1/2 degrees below normal can also produce a very characteristic set of symptoms. So, it is obvious that the proper functioning of the body vitally depends on it being at the right body temperature. POP QUIZ (Fill in the blank): If a very high temperature can be very bad, and a very low temperature can be very bad, and a pretty high temperature can be pretty bad , then a pretty low temperature can be? . If you answered: pretty bad, you get an A+. Unfortunately, medical schools have taught doctors not to pay any attention to a relatively low body temperature; perhaps because it is not immediately life-threatening, or because the associated symptoms have been mistakenly considered psychological or attributed to other causes. In this book, Dr. Wilson shows how many different medicines are frequently used in an attempt to address patients' symptoms one- at-a-time, when they would be far more responsive to treating the underlying problem. Immediately life- threatening? No, only enough to make some feel "half-dead." It's Easy To Check Your Temperature... Take your temperature, by mouth, with a thermometer (digital thermometers can become inaccurate from low battery or being dropped) every three hours, three times a day, starting three hours after waking, for several days (not the three days prior to the period in women since it ’ s higher then). For each day, add the temperatures together and divide by 3 to get the average. Almost everyone ’ s temperatures are low in the morning, but the temperatures go higher in the afternoon and lower in the evening. So, it's a better comparison to see if the temperatures are running low in the middle of the day when the temperatures are supposed to be at their highest. This is because the symptoms of patients with Wilson's Thyroid Syndrome are, by far, most likely to resolve when their temperatures are brought up to average around 98.6 degrees during the day. NOTE: People can run consistently low temperatures even if they feel hot all the time or sweat easily— be sure to check it with a thermometer! How Can Such an Easily Recognized and Simply Treated problem as WTS have gone overlooked? "Because I can't get these symptoms to improve with thyroid medicine, they can't be improved with thyroid medicine."—That's not necessarily so. This condition hasn't been so easily recognized in the past because doctors didn't have a way to get it better. Because some patients' symptoms did not respond in the past lisinopril
