Medical Mystery: Thyroid Resistance in Fibromyalgia

If there is more research, there will be less misdiagnoses

There still needs to be more research concerning thyroid resistance and fibromyalgia. In order to better understand fibromyalgia or thyroid hormone resistance, it is clear that further studies on the disorder must be done at the gene or cellular level. In that way, a full and in-depth understanding of how cellular metabolism performs in fibromyalgia patients will be discovered. This can largely help disentangle the intricacies of defining symptoms for all kinds of thyroid disorders, such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and thyroid hormone resistance. The possibility of attending physicians to make a misinformed diagnosis will be lessened.
