Hypothyroidism

The thyroid’s role is to maintain the body’s regulatory functions thus affecting our bodies at the cellular level. Cellular energy decline is inevitable due to the aging process, stress, and environmental toxins happening daily in our lives. Thyroid dysfunction can negatively affect the neurological, heart, skeletal muscle, kidneys, and hormone-producing tissues in our bodies.

“My doctor says my thyroid is fine, so why do I feel so tired and am gaining weight regardless of what I do.”

We check 5 Thyroid markers.  Most providers only check 3 markers.

It is common that we find an underlying autoimmune disease or a misconversion of T4.  Both of these are treatable and may reduce the symptoms of subclinical Hypothyroidism.
