Thyroid Hormone Optimization

But my Doctor Smith said my thyroid levels are normal! How many times have you heard this? From depression, chronic fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, constipation, thinning hair and interrupted sleep, having thyroid hormones that are not optimized can make your life miserable. And just because your TSH falls within the “normal” range does not mean that your symptoms can be ignored! Hypothyroidism affects 20 million people in the US alone. 1 in 8 women will develop a thyroid disease in her lifetime. 60% of those affected to thyroid disfunction are entirely unaware or have simply been told “it’s not your thyroid.”

Thyroid hormones have a significant downstream influence on other important hormones in the body including serotonin, sex hormones and insulin among others. There are cardiovascular implications to hypothyroidism such as increased LDL’s and triglycerides, increased blood pressure and even decreased cardiac output and bradycardia. Thyroid health can be affected by diet, medications, pregnancy, radiation and environmental influences.

Just because your TSH is within the normal limits, does not mean it is functioning to meet the needs of your unique body. Subclinical hypothyroid is a real thing! It’s not all about TSH. At Coastal Vitality and Anti-Aging, we understand the importance of looking at the whole clinical picture. Testing free T3 and free T4, reverse T3, thyroid antibodies, food sensitivity and testing for vitamin levels give us a complete and complex picture of your true thyroid function.

Treatment with pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, diet modification or simply vitamin replacement can improve or reverse symptoms and improve your quality of life. Schedule your consultation with Coastal today. It just might be your thyroid after all!
