Are you tired, cold, depressed, losing your hair and gaining weight?
It could be your thyroid!
Symptoms of hypothyroidism (aka ”sluggish thyroid”)
- Weight gain or inability to lose weight despite a healthy diet and exercise
- Hair loss
- Dry skin
- Feeling cold
I have some of those symptoms but my doctor says my thyroid is “NORMAL”!
I see patients everyday who have been told that their thyroid is normal based on a single test called TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). The problem with relying on this single test is that it misses a large percentage of thyroid issues. My approach is to run a full thyroid panel (which includes TSH, free T3, free T4, and TPO-antibodies) in order to get a full picture of how the thyroid is working. It’s also important to look at other hormones which affect thyroid function such as cortisol and estrogen.
