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 New York City doctors did not know enough about hypothyroidism, especially the dangers of thyroid disease and pregnancy. Under their care her TSH, the gold standard for thyroid function, reached levels far above the recommended 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.
HypothyroidMom.com is for the millions of moms worldwide with hypothyroidism (and the millions more who don't even know they have it yet). Founder Dana Trentini lost her unborn baby to hypothyroidism and vowed to warn women everywhere about the dangers. After 3 years of intense research and a quest to find the top thyroid health experts, the time has come to share all that she has discovered.
