Thyroid-Related Conditions

Thyroid problems are often misdiagnosed and mistreated… and women are often affected the most. Over 80 % of our patients who have a thyroid problem are not being treated properly!

Does this sound familiar? Your labs come back “Normal” and yet you still feel tired, achy, cold, depressed and mentally sluggish. I can’t tell you how many people have been told…”go home, get some rest, your blood work looks normal, you are probably just over worked.”

Or even worse, you are put on thyroid hormone replacement and you still have all the symptoms of hypothyroidism but your lab tests show that your thyroid levels are good. And worst of all it’s difficult to get anyone to listen to you. So now what do you do?

Here are some common symptoms:

  • Feeling Tired
  • Mentally fatigued/sluggish
  • Can’t lose weight even with exercise
  • Feel cold—hands, feet, or all over
  • Require excessive amounts of sleep to function properly
  • Increase in weight gain even with low-calorie diet
  • Gain weight easily
  • Difficult, infrequent bowel movements
  • Depression, lack of motivation
  • Morning headaches that wear off as the day progresses
  • Outer third of eyebrow thins
  • Thinning of hair on scalp, face or genitals or hair loss
  • Dryness of skin and/or scalp
  • Nervousness and emotional
  • Insomnia
  • Night sweats

It doesn’t have to be that way. I have found that most will have only two tests done (TSH and T4) to determine if they have a thyroid problem. While these tests may offer a simple screening for thyroid function they don’t offer the complete picture! Did you know there are well over 20+ ways that your thyroid can go bad? And, only one of those ways will respond to typical replacement therapy. Not everyone fits into the replacement model of treatment. Modern approaches allow us to dial in to your specific needs.

There is a delicate dance that goes on with all the hormone systems and the thyroid plays a key role in your metabolism and energy. Don’t go on feeling frustrated. We will listen to your concerns and chart a course to get you back on track. Comprehensive blood work and functional neurological analysis will help us determine the shortest path to getting you better.
