Thyroid Optimization

The thyroid is a tiny gland (base of your throat) that helps to regulate many hormonal functions in the body! As part of the endocrine system, this gland produces hormones that regulate critical bodily functions such as:

  • Metabolic rate

  • Heart function

  • Digestive function

  • Muscle control

  • Brain development

  • Maintaining bone mass

  • Mood

 

So when it’s unhappy, your thyroid function is diminished and affects other important areas of life. These thyroid “issues” are typically one of the following:

  • Hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid)

  • Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid)

  • Hashimoto’s disease (autoimmune)

  • Subclinical Hypothyroidism

  • Grave’s disease

  • Goiter

  • Thyroid nodules

 

Traditional family practice providers often rely solely on evaluating a thyroid by looking at the thyroid stimulating hormone, or TSH, which only gives one value for how your thyroid is performing. For many people suffering symptoms of a failing thyroid, evaluating the TSH alone will not provide a full look at how the thyroid is working. In fact, your TSH is not a thyroid hormone, it is a brain hormone! Your TSH is one piece of the puzzle, we also evaluate active thyroid hormone production, transportation, conversion, absorption, and destruction which all have a significant impact on normal thyroid function. At Perspective Health, LLC, we understand how to fully evaluate your thyroid function and work to find an individualized treatment to optimize your thyroid

Does this describe you? 

Feel like there is something “off” and keep getting told that everything is normal and expected with aging?

Gaining weight without changing your normal routine. Difficulty losing weight despite following a diet and activity plan?

You’ve reached a point in your life where you are ready to focus on YOU, you want to look and feel your best?

Tired of being tired. Tired of no libido. Tired of no answers.
