Do you have all the hypothyroid symptoms even though you’re being told your thyroid is normal?
Sometimes when it comes to your thyroid, your labs could come back normal even if you do have hypothyroidism because you aren’t being tested for the right things.
So in this episode, I’ll be addressing a common concern among my patients—the thyroid. I want to help you understand the importance of accurate testing to determine whether your thyroid is functioning optimally so you can identify any issues and get the treatment plan you need.
There is a lot of nuance when it comes to thyroid levels and what could be impacting them, so it’s so important to work with someone who does a lot of work with the thyroid. They can get you on medications and treatments that can be life-changing for you.
