Your thyroid is the master gland of your metabolism and thyroid hormone is active in almost every cell of your body. An underactive thyroid (hypothyroid), an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroid) or a thyroid that is being attacked by your own immune system (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Grave’s disease) can impair your overall body’s functioning and leave you feeling unwell. Below are common signs of a poorly functioning thyroid.
The conventional approach commonly uses TSH in screening for thyroid, if this is normal no further testing is done. However, many patients with a “normal” TSH still present with symptoms and may require more comprehensive thyroid testing. Dr. Bizios will perform a comprehensive thyroid panel, and screen for nutritional deficiencies related to thyroid health. A unique combination of herbs, vitamins, minerals and nutrition will help correct any imbalances.
