Dr Oz: At-Home Test For Sluggish Thyroids
Dr. Oz sat down with Sofia Vergara to talk about her cancer scare at 28 and having her entire thyroid removed, meaning she lost an important part of her body to regulate her metabolism. Vergara brought her personal physician with her on the show to talk about an at home check you can do for your thyroid and he also went over the symptoms for a sluggish thyroid, which could be dangerous to your health.
Dr Oz: Symptoms Of Gallstones
Sofia Vergara said all her friends and co-workers go directly to her for medical advice. She has been known to correctly diagnose health issues for her son and fiance, but how well do you think she will do with Dr. Oz’s diagnosing quiz? He challenged her to guess some health conditions from symptoms he told her. See how many you can get right.
- Very tired, runny nose, non-stop sneezing and itchy eyes (especially in the morning) – These are all allergy symptoms and Vergara even got the diagnosis right.
- Rash isolated to arms and back of knees, crusty and itchy rash – These are all symptoms of eczema which Sofia Vergara got right again. Maybe she should have gone to medical school and not got into acting.
- Feeling awful an hour after eating a fatty meal, getting a cramp that leads to excruciating pain underneath the ribs that lasts for an hour – Vergara though these were the symptoms for an ulcer but Dr. Oz said that was wrong. He explained if a person has an ulcer they will experience these types of symptoms right after a meal. The correct diagnosis for these symptoms would be gallstones.
Dr. Oz figured two out three was pretty good and he even told Sofia Vergara she could be an honorary doctor for the day.
