Long ago, low thyroid function was diagnosed and treated by doctors from studying the patients symptoms, and quite effectively too. Once blood testing for thyroid function became the standard first line investigation, symptoms became largely ignored and many patients began to fall into the category of ‘subclinical’ or even worse - ‘in normal parameters’.
It was around the same time that synthetic thyroid hormone treatments came onto the market and if you did fit into the right category of having underactive thyroid you were given a synthetic medication that altered the lab results, but left many feeling like rung out dishrags.
We know that successful thyroid treatment, (as with anything) is best gauged by a symptoms as well as through pathology. This means not only should the person begin to feel much better, with a decrease in symptoms, but that pathology should see levels of free T3 in the top of the range, and free T4 midrange. If free T3 is at the top of the range and you still feel lousy, it may indicate adrenal issues or even anemia. So many people know the frustration of getting blood-tests back that see their doctor saying “you’re fine, there’s nothing wrong with you” only to continue to feel depressed, gain weight, loose head hair and struggle more and more with insomnia, weakness and anxiety.
It DOESN”T have to be this way. We look at your health from a holistic perspective, taking ALL your symptoms into account. Your adrenal, female (or male) hormonal balance as well as thyroid function is all thoroughly assessed and treatments are tailor-made to your specific requirements with bio-identical hormones, which are identical to those your body should be producing when functioning correctly. So if you have been on thyroid medication for years and still feel like you’re struggling, why not take a different approach? It could be the return of YOU!
