O Oprah, Get Real About Your Thyroid

Oprah Winfrey has taken the same tack as Gail Devers when Gail was first discovered to have thyroid disease.She was over the top with her explanation of the effects of her radiation therapy. Weeks in the hospital! Burned legs! All not true, but good enough for a movie deal. She has, however become a great advocate for thyroid patients ever since.The great O has stated her thyroid was blown out. And that 4 weeks of vacation to reduce stress fixed her.She stated her failure to lose weight when she was hyperthyroid, and the massive weight gain when she became hypothyroid.
The many years of weight problems well documented on all her shows.lij
