    • Does anyone have a thyroid condition?  One year ago, I was diagnosed with an enlarged right thyroid with multiple nodules.  Thankfully, there is no cancer.  

      However, when I started reading a new book about hypothyroidism, the endocrinologist who wrote the book said that many ADHD individuals simply have a thyroid imbalance.
      He said that a low dose of thyroid medication will reduce the inattention, the brain fog, the distraction and many other symptoms.  

      I am interested if anyone in this group has a thyroid condition and ADHD?

        • I dont but my daughter has been under watch for her thyroid.  She has a nodule on one side that seems to be holding steady.  Thyroid problems run in my husband’s family.  3 first cousins of his, all girls in the same family have had thyroid issues.  Two of them had cancer and have had them removed and are living very healthy lives.
