Low thyroid function is one of the single most common hormone imbalances in the United States and yet it is also one of the most under-diagnosed and under-treated conditions.
The common treatments for thyroid problems are often ineffective because the treatments do not address the individual as a whole and often ignore how hormonal, dietary and lifestyle factors influence thyroid function. In fact, for most patients, the underlying cause of their thyroid dysfunction is a result of continuous stress on the immune system rather than a problem with the thyroid gland directly. Unfortunately, the appropriate lab testing to determine proper treatment is usually not included in most standard lab tests and, as a result, patients are left feeling lost and confused.
Frustration grows even further when patients are told their lab work looks “normal” as they deal daily with common symptoms associated with low thyroid function that adversely affect their quality of life, such as:
- Irregular menstrual cycles
- Low Libido
- Hair Loss
- Inability to Lose Weight
- Weight Gain
- Trouble Falling/Staying Asleep
- Nervousness or Anxiety
- Heart Palpations
- Digestive Issues
- Cold Hands/Feet
- Changeable Moods
- Inability to Concentrate
- Poor memory recall
