Thyroid disease is one of the most often undiagnosed and misdiagnosed diseases. According to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, up to 27 million Americans may be affected by thyroid diseases. Of this number, more than 50% are undiagnosed. One research study reported that 3% of college-age women studied had a thyroid disorder.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I found a brochure in the office of my local labcorp about thyroid disease---it was published in 2005----and according to this brochure---my local doctors should have tested me for a "rare pituitary tumor" due to my odd lab levels.

 

I wonder if doctors are misdx'g thyroid disease---and their patients develop diabetes. There are a whole lot of people who have diabetes----and some of them I know look like they have Cushings.
