Michelle may ‘Hashimoto disease’
Nag-share ang aktres na si Michelle Madrigal sa kanyang social media account na Instagram na na-diagnose siya with Hashimoto Disease. Ang Hasimoto Disease ay isang ‘autoimmune disorder that can hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid’.
Kilala rin ang naturang sakit bilang Hashimoto thyroiditis and chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis.
“It means that my immune system makes antibodies that attack the thyroid gland. The thyroid becomes damaged and can’t make enough thyroid hormones,” sabi ni Michelle.
Ayon pa sa WebMD: “The thyroid gland makes hormones that control metabolism. This includes your heart rate and how quickly your body uses calories from the foods you eat.”
Gumawa ng sarili niyang research si Michelle tungkol sa kanyang sakit at mas gusto niyang gumaling ‘in a holistic way’ at hindi sa mga gamot na prescribed ng doktor.
“I have been doing my research on AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) diet and paleo diet, so I will most likely start with it after our vacation.
“I started cutting sugar & gluten into my diet and it is amazing that I am not really craving sweets lately.
“I really am on a huge ‘transition phase’ of my life this year. So here’s to healing naturally and being healthy from the inside out!”
Ang mga symptoms ng sakit na ito ay ang mga sumusunod: weight gain, fatigue, paleness or puffiness of the face, joint and muscle pain, constipation, inability to get warm, difficulty getting pregnant, joint and muscle pain, hair loss or thinning, brittle hair, irregular or heavy menstrual periods, depression at slowed heart rate.
