It Runs in the Family -- Thyroid Issues, that Is!
Saturday, June 08, 2013
Thyroid problems are genetic. Right? At least, that's what I've read, and I'm the perfect example: I have Hashimoto's; my grandmother died of complications from a goiter, my brother had his thyroid removed ...
But is it also in the air?
My husband takes precisely the same amount of Synthroid as I. Could diet explain this? Well, we're not eating dog food, and the latest dieter in our little family is our one-year-old Aussie.
Yes, my sweet Pete is overweight. He walks two and a half miles every day, has a consistent 1/4 cup of appropriate dog food twice a day ... Carrots for treats ...
The vet is thinking thyroid issues ... Just like his mommy and daddy -- but, I swear, he is not "blood" related -- We adopted!!
Dog/Kitty - lovers, try "The Pet Pantry." They are local in Raleigh, but they ship. If your "child" is having issues, they ask what those are and then formulate a food that is right for them-- very high quality and priced competitively. I have never seen a company more concerned with its canine/ feline customers. (No, I don't work for them ... Just a happy convert) They are: feedyourpet.com ... Oops! You have to use caps: FeedYourPet.com ... Oops again! Yipes! It is FeedYourPets.com (plural) They ought to simplify their name!
