Welcome to The Invisible Hypothyroidism!


I started this site as a means for me to record my personal journey of battling hypothyroidism, but also to help others. 

I went undiagnosed for a while, then put on Levothyroxine, which only made me feel worse and develop lots of other symptoms and problems. I then switched thyroid medication to NDT and have made a drastic recovery.

How To Locate Articles and Posts:

If you’re looking for a specific post or topic use the search bar to the top-right to search. For example, search for ‘adrenal’ for adrenal-related articles, or ‘NDT’ for posts about the thyroid medication, Natural Desiccated Thyroid.

Otherwise, use the menu along the top of the page to locate specific categories and series.

If you’ve just been diagnosed or are just starting to learn about the condition, click Help! I’m New To This! It includes lots of helpful links to get you started.

We’ve got lots to learn, myself included! The topic of thyroid disease and all its related topics is so very vast.

Reading is knowledge and knowledge is power.
