Too many people are walking around with a thyroid problem that is not showing up on traditional tests. They may have a “functional” hypothyroid, or the autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. For people with a “functional” hypothyroid their symptoms may include being very tired, hair loss, feeling chilled, loss of eyebrows, dryness, lack of appetite, weight gain or inability to lose weight. Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is an autoimmune condition where the immune system actually attacks the thyroid gland because it senses it to be a foreign substance and it fears it will hurt you. If this is the case, we will teach you how to “turn down” the attack.
We offer comprehensive thyroid testing via blood draw or blood spot. Both are very good and can provide you with the answers you need for your symptoms!
