Metabolic Syndrome X and Hypothyroidism

Health - Thyroid, Dr. Tennant newsletter 1
In his newsletter 01, Dr. Tennant discusses the causes of a major epidemic, Hypothyroidism.
The symptoms of the epidemic, obesity, hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart attacks, depression, etc. are well known.
In order to discuss hypothyroidism, we must first discuss Metabolic Syndrome X and iodine deficiency as this understanding is necessary to understand hypothyroidism.
Most doctors agree that what is called Metabolic Syndrome X is responsible for most of the illnesses.
So what is Metabolic Syndrome X?
The symptoms and features of Metabolic Syndrome X are:
1. Fasting hyperglycemia — diabetes mellitus type 2 or impaired fasting glucose, impaired glucose tolerance, or insulin resistance
2. High blood pressure
3. Central obesity (also known as visceral, male-pattern or appleshaped adiposity), overweight with fat deposits mainly around the waist
4. Decreased HDL cholesterol and elevated triglycerides
Obesity *
Obesity requires some special attention. When you are bigger around the waist than around your hips, this is called “Apple Obesity”.
This type of obesity is associated with illnesses such as heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, gall bladder disease, and cancer. When you are bigger around your hips than around your waist, this is called “Pear Obesity”. This is associated with hormonal imbalances but is not as likely to cause you heart attacks, strokes and cancer.
MSG * A major contributor to obesity is MSG. Leptin is a hormone released to tell your brain that you are full. MSG damages the brain so that it does not recognize leptin. Thus you always feel hungry. MSG is put in foods because it is addicting and it makes you want to eat more = more profits for the food manufacturers. MSG is hidden in foods by calling it “other spices”.
Additives that always contain MSG
• Monosodium Glutamate
• Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
• Hydrolyzed Protein
• Hydrolyzed Plant Protein
• Plant Protein Extract
• Sodium Caseinate
• Calcium Caseinate
• Yeast Extract
• Textured Protein
• Autolyzed Yeast
• Hydrolyzed Oat Flour
Metabolic Syndrome is an epidemic that also includes stress, anger, heart attacks, ADHD, migraine headaches, and childhood and adult obesity with depression.
