Many women, and even doctors, are not aware that some women develop hyperemesis gravidarum due to abnormal thyroid function during early pregnancy.
This condition, known
as Transient Hyperthyroidism of Hyperemesis Gravidarum, or THHG, is the cause of the problem in a small percentage of women.
Symptoms include severe nausea, excessive vomiting, electrolyte disturbances, weight loss, fatigue, weakness, excessive salivation, lightheadedness, fainting, and infrequent urination.
Could the Duchess be suffering from an undiagnosed case of THHG? It's certainly possible, and we hope that her physicians are investigating this on her behalf.
