    "In my opinion, every diabetic patient seen in my practice has suffered hypothyroidism." notes Mark Starr, MD in his wonderful book Hypothyroidism Type 2: The Epidemic.

    “Dr. [Broda] Barnes believe diabetes was due in large part to hypothyroidism,” Dr. Starr wrote (p. 41).

    “… almost all the complications from diabetes are due to hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis.” (p. 42)

    “These complications include blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, gangrene, and nerve damage.” (p. 42)

    “Diabetics suffer accelerated atherosclerosis identical to that associated with hypothyroidism.” (p. 42)

    “… new cases of diabetes were very rare among Dr. [Broda] Barnes patients being treated for hypothyroidism.” (p. 42)

    “… a significant number of patients with diabetes sought [Dr. Broda Barnes] help.” (p. 42)

    “After many years of practice, [Dr. Barnes] realized that NONE of his patients with diabetes had developed ANY of the typical or more advanced complications from their illness.” (p. 42)

    This had previously been reported in 1954 by Crosby D. Eaton, MD, but ignored.

    Dr. Eaton had written a paper titled “Coexistence of Hypothyroidism with Diabetes Mellitus” (1954).

    “The study included several hundred diabetic patients of all ages who were treated for years,” Dr. Starr continues (p. 42).

    “Dr. Eaton realize the vast majority of his diabetic patients also suffered hypothyroidism.” (p. 42)

    “[Dr. Eaton] administered desiccated thyroid hormones with no adverse effects upon their diabetic control.” (p. 42)

    “[Dr. Eaton] reported a vastly reduced incidence of complications related to diabetes as well as the elimination of symptoms associate with hypothyroidism.” (p. 42-43)

    “Dr. Broda Barnes was not the first to report what now seems to be an astonishing revelation.”

    “However, he was the first doctor to back up his report with hard evidence consisting of 70,000 autopsy studies and long-term patient outcome studies.”

    “Dr. Barnes presented his research on the coexistence of diabetes and hypothyroidism at a 1971 American Medical Association meeting.”

    “He also met with prominent doctors…”

    “Unfortunately, he found no sympathetic ears, despite the wealth of evidence he had gathered from the autopsies, his own patients, and Dr. Eaton’s report.”

    “In my opinion, every diabetic patient seen in my practice has suffered hypothyroidism.”


    Desiccated Thyroid vs Synthetic Thyroid Hormones

    Type 2 Hypothyroidism : Blood levels of thyroid hormone and TSH are normal

    Dr. Starr also notes that that desiccated thyroid (Armour) is much more effective than synthetic thyroid hormones.

    Here is what he wrote on page 164.

    “A recent book by Sanford Siegal, DO, MD, entitled “Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat” lends additional credence to the thyroid epidemic.”

    “Dr. Siegal specialized in weight loss.”

    “He… asked if I would be… on his referral list… because I was one of only several hundred doctors who prescribed the medication.”

    “In over 40 years of practice, Dr. Siegal found in treating thousands of patients that desiccated thyroid (Armour) was much more effective than synthetic thyroid hormones.”

    “Dr. Zondek also reported the superior efficacy of desiccated thyroid over synthetic thyroid hormone in the treatment of the ‘obese form’ of hypothyroidism in his 1926 textbook, Diseases of the Endocrine Glands.”

    “He had not changed his opinion by the time the forth edition was published in 1944.”



    Type 1 vs Type 2 Hypothyroidism

    Type 2 Hypothyroidism : Blood levels of thyroid hormone and TSH are normal

    Type 2 hypothyroidism is different than Type 1 hypothyroidism, which is what most people are referring to when they say hypothyroidism.

    With Type 2 hypothyroidism, blood levels of thyroid hormone and TSH are normal, however the body is resistant to it.

    This is similar to the difference between Type 1 diabetes where the body fails to make enough insulin, and Type 2 diabetes, where the body makes enough insulin, but the body is resistant to it.


    Blood Tests Do Not Detect Type 2 Hypothyroidism

    Type 2 Hypothyroidism Cannot Be Detected with a Blood Test

    With Type 2 hypothyroidism, because blood levels of thyroid hormone and TSH are normal, it is cannot be detected by a standard blood test for thyroid function.


    Measuring Body Temperature To Detect Type 2 Hypothyroidism

    The Only Way to Detect Type 2 Hypothyroidism is Measuring Body Temperature

    The only way to detect Type 2 hypothyroidism is measuring body temperature upon awakening, and to see if a person responds positively to receiving desiccated thyroid hormones.
