Thyroid- The Organ That Impacts Everything

Your thyroid is a small gland that lives in your neck and plays a gigantic role in your health.

It impacts everything in your body from your heart rate, digestive movement, cognitive function, rate of metabolism, weight fluctuations, lipid regulation and more!

Far too often I have patients come in with a known thyroid disorder where their previous doctor looked only at labs opposed to looking at how the patient was feeling.

Labs give us part of the story but not the whole story.

It is important that the doctor you work with listen to how you are feeling when evaluating your thyroid health in addition to your labs.

The other important portion of the thyroid story is to assess for the presence of antibodies attacking the thyroid. It is estimated that 90% of hypothyroidism is actually undiagnosed Hashimoto's thyroiditis which carries with it MORE symptoms.

If you feel stuck or perhaps that you could be feeling better than you currently are, it may be time for a new approach.

Reach out today for a free 15 minute consult or book your new patient appointment at (480) 722- 2811 to see how I can help you feel your best- SOON!
