Duyu Care has recently launched in the UK with its first product, Thyroid Hero®. Leading with a proactive approach to thyroid care and born with a mission to serve more than 800 million people worldwide impacted by thyroid conditions, the firm is offering a new standard in thyroid health and a ground-breaking supplement that supports optimal thyroid function and overall health.

The firm has published an extensive Thyroid Health Survey* and the results have highlighted that less than 1 in 10 (7%) understand thyroid conditions even though 45% admitted they were or knew someone who was suffering from a thyroid condition. Thyroid issues are among the most under-diagnosed, misunderstood, and prevalent health challenges facing people today.

The thyroid, a small but mighty butterfly-shaped endocrine gland situated in the neck, plays a crucial role in hormone production, metabolism, bone health, mood, fertility, and more. Given its broad role, it’s unsurprising that thyroid imbalances can have far-reaching consequences on your health.

Compounding the issue, thyroid health is a landscape cluttered with conflicting advice and pervasive myths, making it even trickier to make the right call when it comes to your thyroid health.

To help raise awareness and increase understanding of thyroid health issues the firm has debunked the top 5 myths about the condition.

Myth 1: You will always know when you have a thyroid condition.

Truth 1: Thyroid conditions can masquerade as a multitude of other health conditions, making it hard to detect.

Studies show that the average time to diagnose thyroid conditions is 4.5 years[1], and up to 60% of thyroid disorders remain undiagnosed due to subtle, nonspecific symptoms that are wrongly attributed to other conditions. Understanding the root cause of thyroid dysfunction is a crucial first step when developing a plan to rebalance and maintain a healthy thyroid.

Myth 2: Thyroid issues are exclusive to women.

Truth 2: Thyroid disorders do not discriminate and can affect anyone.

Whilst women are 5-8 times more likely to suffer from thyroid conditions than men[2], and 1 in 4 people over 60 experience thyroid-related issues[3], thyroid disorders do not discriminate. Approximately 6% of men are affected by thyroid conditions[4], and children, infants and even pets are also at risk, albeit less commonly.

Myth 3: Thyroid disorders are incurable.

Truth 3: There may not be a cure (as a permanent fix), but that doesn’t mean the thyroid system cannot be improved and balanced with lifestyle changes.

It is estimated that 800 million people worldwide are affected by thyroid conditions, with thyroid issues considered by many to be incurable. This is because often the approach focuses on symptom management instead of addressing the root cause. Adopting a holistic, whole-body approach by managing stress, food intolerances, and nutrient deficiencies can help improve the health of your thyroid, instead of relying on band-aid solutions that mask the problem and worsen symptoms over time.

Myth 4: People with thyroid issues should avoid ALL cruciferous vegetables.

Truth 4: Most people with thyroid issues can safely enjoy cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli and cauliflower in moderation, particularly when cooked.

The myth that cruciferous veggies are harmful to those with thyroid conditions due to their goitrogen content is misinformed. The concern arises mainly in cases of exceptionally high consumption of these types of vegetables uncooked, and in the presence of low iodine intake[5]. A well-balanced diet, rich in iodine and moderate in cruciferous veggies, such as cauliflower and broccoli, especially when cooked, is not only safe but beneficial for your health.

Myth 5: Levothyroxine cures an underactive thyroid.

Truth 5: Levothyroxine, while standard, is not the only thyroid treatment.

Levothyroxine doesn’t actually ‘treat’ the thyroid, it only masks the symptoms by supplying the body with a hormone that the thyroid should be producing but isn’t. Integrating medication with a healthy lifestyle, stress reduction tactics, thyroid supplements such as Thyroid Hero® and regular exercise can help you heal and contribute to overall health and wellbeing.

Dispelling these common myths could help empower individuals to begin the right course for their thyroid health.

Founder of Duyu Care, Marie Peinert’s own thyroid health journey inspired the concept of Duyu Care. Following her diagnosis of an autoimmune thyroid condition, she quickly discovered traditional healthcare wasn’t armed with the correct tools to support. Having only been offered medicine that suppressed the body’s biochemistry, rather than boosting thyroid health, she wanted to develop a better and more holistic solution to improving thyroid health, which led to the creation of Duyu Care.

Created by a team of health experts, the firm’s first product, Thyroid Hero® is a full-spectrum thyroid health supplement combining the most effective, natural ingredients into one clean and potent formula, which promotes optimal thyroid health and helps to minimise a myriad of symptoms, which can range from dysregulated metabolism to brain fog and fatigue to low energy and mood.

The industry-first formula enhances key elements of thyroid health by promoting antioxidant defence, optimising thyroid function, improving stress response and normalising thyroid biomarkers responsible for the production of thyroid hormones.
