I suffered with Thyroid Issues, Thyroid problems, can contribute to vitalago, goiters, staring eyes etc, weight issues such as having problems with losing tons of weight or gaining tons weight, and even psychitric problems like mania, and schizophrenia the problems thyroid issues can cause go on for miles. Many people suffer from Thyroid Disease. Mine caused extreme weight loss, a goiter, staring eyes and pigmentation loss (not vitalago in my case). It was caused by radiation exposer, and went away when i cut iodine consumtion way down. Salt contains Iodine, which is a culpart in keeping thyroid issues alive. I have heard of thyroid problems resulting in an iodine defiency. I do eat regular salt, I cut my portions down. I had a really bad habit of eating massive amounts of salty foods. Which only irratated what needed to heal. (now I use a "normal" amount of salt
My thyroid has went flat and has been flat for exactly one year, my pigmention came back,and that "eye lock" compleaty went away. After years of docs and thyroid meds, nothing helped. Only thing I did differn't last year was not use as much salt containing iodine and pray that the thing goes away(yes im spirituel) ..now its gone!
This is not
a pic of my thyroid, but this is exactly what it used to look like with a goiter. It caused a great deal of suffering
