Comprehensive Thyroid Assessment

Thyroid hormones help regulate the body’s metabolism. When the thyroid is not functioning properly it can negatively impact virtually every metabolic process in the body with severe effects on mood and energy level. The thyroid gland stabilizes our bodies’ carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism, vitamin utilization, mitochondrial function, digestive process, muscle and nerve activity, blood flow, oxygen utilization, hormone secretion, sexual and reproductive health, and many other physiological parameters. Thyroid imbalances can result in the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Coldness
  • Constipation
  • Poor Skin
  • Headaches
  • PMS
  • Dysmenorrhea
  • Fluid Retention
  • Weight Gain
  • Weight Loss
  • Anxiety/Panic Attacks
  • Decreased Memory and Concentration
  • Muscle and Joint Pain
  • Low Sex Drive
  • Hair Loss
  • Dry Skin

Thyroid imbalances can also negatively impact the pathogenesis of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and depression.
