Thyroid

You have symptoms of thyroid dysfunction and their blood tests came back normal.
Where do they go from there? We look at the thyroid as part of a hormone system
and not as conventional medicine which looks at the thyroid alone.

There are many causes to thyroid dysfunction including excessive estrogen which
blocks thyroid function. This is seen especially in the menopause and
peri-menopausal years.  The connection between thyroid hormone imbalance and
menopause is often overlooked.

But did you know that depression, heart disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, PMS
(premenstrual syndrome), menopausal symptoms, muscle and joint pains, irritable
bowel syndrome, or autoimmune disease could actually indicate a problem with your
thyroid?

The classic signs of a sluggish thyroid gland include weight gain, lethargy, poor
quality hair and nails, hair loss, dry skin, fatigue, cold hands and feet, and
constipation -- and these symptoms are relatively well known.

Liver dysfunction, insulin resistance and
adrenal fatigue can also affect thyroid
function and cause many of the same symptoms like cold hands and feet, hair loss,
fatigue, constipation, memory loss, depression and many more.

In fact only about 20% of the women suffering from thyroid symptoms suffer from
primary thyroid problems. The other 80% are suffering due to a primary problem
elsewhere in the hormonal system that is causing decrease thyroid function.

Testing salivary or blood levels of progesterone during the luteal phase of the
menstrual cycle can be of great value, so that gentle replacement can be
implemented if needed to reduce the negative impact of excess estrogen on the
thyroid.

We evaluate and, if appropriate,
test for adrenal function in combination with
thyroid testing.
