HypothyroidMom.com Launches Thyroid Advocacy Site For Moms With Hypothyroidism
The Thyroid Federation International estimates there are up to 300 million people worldwide with thyroid dysfunction, yet over half are unaware of their condition. The mission of HypothyroidMom.com is clear - to drive awareness.
Hypothyroid Mom reveals research on the dangers of hypothyroidism and pregnancy, including miscarriage, still birth, infertility, maternal anemia, pre-eclampsia, placental abruption, postpartum hemorrhage, premature delivery, low birth weight, and deficits in intellectual development in infants. The literature sited also links an under active thyroid to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer's. Despite the research connecting hypothyroidism to many of the deadliest diseases of our time, the lack of awareness is pervasive.
Founder Dana Trentini was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid, following the birth of her first son in 2006. She trusted her doctors never once thinking they might not know everything about hypothyroidism, especially when she became pregnant again in late 2008. She would later learn that her NYC doctors did not know enough about hypothyroidism, especially the dangers of hypothyroidism and pregnancy. Under their care her TSH, the gold standard for thyroid function, reached levels far above the safe range for pregnancy and she miscarried. On that fateful day, she vowed to research everything there was to know about this disease and warn women everywhere. She fulfilled her vow with the launch of Hypothyroid Mom.
"Hypothyroid Mom is written in memory of the baby I lost to hypothyroidism and in dedication to my two boys who beat the odds and made it to the world. I am touched by the response this blog has received from people around the world since it launched on October 1st, 2012. I believe my lost baby has been given a voice in this blog."
