Read Transcript

And now it's time for my favorite, favorite part of the show as Dr. Wells, and today will let me ask as can select the questionnaires. So who is it going to be today, make some noise? They are lucky they are lucky they are lucky come on down come on down come on ooh you exhausted, you're tired? We're getting there.

Good hustle. Okay thank you. Hi. What's your name? My name is Linda. Hi Linda, what's your question? The question is we all have thyroid. Why do women get ab-nodules on their thyroids? So women have problems for a couple of reasons, one women are more prone to auto-immune disorders, so your immune system is mistaking your thyroid for a foreign invader a piece of bacterial virus, and we begins to attack it, and then overtime it over-attacks it and kills a lot of it, then you become hypothyroid, you don't make enough hormones, you get them from too much, to too little.

Nowadays we can diagnose it pretty early and can treat it pretty early, but vitamin D is one little tip that I've noticed might be effective because vitamn D reduces autoimmune problems and for that reason, may help avoid the problems with thyroid problem women. Okay. Fair enough? Very nice.

Thank you very much. Alright, make some noise, make some noise, raise your noise. Here we are, come on down. You picked her, where is she? Come on now, come over men. Well, I can see you dressed to win this competition. How are you? So, what's your name? Cheryl. Cheryl. HiHi Cheryl, what's your question? Well, my husband, he makes noises at night.

He does? Yes. Bring the husband up please, bring the husband area. So, before you get there, he makes noises at night? Yes. Yes, keep going. Well, he keeps snoring and then he goes like this, Can you replicate the noise? No, I can't i'm asleep. Are you sure you're asleep when this happens? So you have no recollection whatsoever? I have no recollection.

What size short do you wear by the way? 50 and a half. 50 and a half, and have you lost any weight gain anyway recently? Gained some weight. Gained a little bit of weight. So sometimes the reason people sound like kazoo's is to have a pallet that's not so rigid. Normally the arch the muscles that holds our air way open is held in place because when we are awake our muscles are tense and when we fall asleep and we begin to dose off, those muscles are relaxed and so that causes so many symptoms.

Now does he ever feel it or sound like he's suffocating? Yes. He does? Yes. Does he wake and go, like that? A little. Not as bad as that. It's sometimes worth seeing an ear, nose and throat doctor because sometimes you have got tissue stuck in your back, a little fatty tissue accumulates and you guys can strip some to strip some of that material off.

And if you can do that, it actually can dramatically reduce some of those sounds. Then. there is also a lot of appliance jik you can use. It's not too uncomfortable but bothers some people, that can also help. But in the meantime if he's not suffocating once that suffocating sound goes away, you married him, you got him.

I know, it's tough right? Thank you very much. Thank you both so much. Thank you. Appreciate it. Thank you ladies we'll be right back.
