Symptoms & Causes

Could your fatigue, weight gain, depression, and cognitive impairment be caused by a thyroid imbalance? Thyroid hormone is the master regulator of energy production in the body. Low levels are also associated with metabolic syndrome, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and menstrual irregularities. Thyroid gland impairment can be caused by nutrition imbalances, environmental toxins, autoimmune conditions and other risk factors.

Testing & Treatment

The conventional way to assess thyroid status is by a TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and maybe a FT4 (the inactive storage form, commonly taken as the medication levothyroxine.)

But many patients are being kept ill by using only these two labs to guide their medication. Some people have central hypothyroidism (with an inappropriately low TSH), or possibly deiodinase enzyme genetic SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) which impair the body’s ability to convert the FT4 into the active FT3 form. A more complete laboratory assessment includes TSH, FT4, FT3, and reverse T3.


Some patients benefit from oral T3 medication. Everyone is unique, and there are a wide range of therapeutic options, including Natural Dessicated Thyroid (NDT). Nutrition and gut health also play a key role. Treatments are personalized, and we look forward to getting you started on the right treatment for your unique case.
