Too many people are walking around with a thyoid problem that is not showing up on traditional medical tests. They may have a “functional” hypothyroid, hyperthyroid or the autoimmune condition called Hashimotos 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. For a “functional” hyperthyroid their symptoms may be anxiety, inability to gain weight, eyes seem to bulge out, excess hunger, extreme sweating, fast heart rate, diarrhea, warm skin etc. 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 thyroid blood spot and thyroid blood draw test kits. Both are very good and can provide you with the answers you need for your symptoms!
