Are your Thyroid Results “Normal” or Under Control? Yet you still have symptoms?
Have you been on Synthroid or Levothyroxin only to show no signs of improvement even after years of increasing and lowering the dosage?
Does your family have a history of Hypothyroidism with no relief?
An underactive thyroid can be a frustrating disorder to pinpoint with so many varying symptoms. Often times, even when prescribed medication, your symptoms never fully feel “fixed”.
Our practitioners look beyond the usual “TSH” and “Total T4” to properly assess your thyroid condition. Due to the overwhelming physical AND mental toll these disorders take on patients, our physicians have developed unique laboratory protocols and interpretations.
Stress, Depression, Anxiety, Tiredness, Sleep Problems, Hair Loss, and Weight Gain are just a few of the reasons you may suspect you have a thyroid problem. Yet these issues are often overlooked as other disorders or simply “in your head.” We hear this too often from our patients and it has become a priority of our clinic to wage war against this often overlooked disorder.
In fact, many of our patient’s find that they are experiencing Subclinical Hypothyroidism or even Hashimoto’s disease. Hashimoto’s disease of the thyroid is an autoimmune condition where your own body attacks the thyroid gland leading to a slowed or underfunctioning thyroid gland. Women are 7 times more likely to develop this disorder, especially between the ages of 40-60.
