Thyroid Q & A

What is the thyroid gland's job?

Your thyroid is a small gland located in the front of your neck, which produces and stores the hormones responsible for your metabolism, which regulates how your body uses energy. When your thyroid hormone production is off kilter, it can have a wide-ranging effect on your body.

What are the symptoms of thyroid disease?

Some experts estimate that more than 80% of Americans have an undiagnosed thyroid condition. The problem for most of these under-diagnosed people is that they can go 20-30 years with symptoms before the blood work shows anything abnormal.

Instead of just running generic thyroid tests, we run a full panel blood work test to uncover the root causes of your symptoms, such as:

  • Inability to lose weight or sudden weight gain
  • Hot flashes
  • Thinning hair
  • Fatigue
  • Depression or lack of motivation
  • Infertility
  • Constipation

Not feeling “right” is reason enough to visit us to see if your thyroid may be at the heart of the matter.

Why don’t thyroid issues show up in blood results?

Thyroid conditions often occur because of a problem somewhere other than the thyroid gland itself, which is why the blood work can appear normal and, yet, you still don’t feel well. There are three reasons for this phenomenon:

  • Autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s Disease)
  • A stress-related thyroid condition (rT3 dominance)
  • Hormone resistance (Type II thyroid resistance)

How are thyroid problems treated?

 At Renova Medical Center, we have done extensive research on which conditions impact the thyroid and how to treat them. His treatment approaches include:

Proper blood work

We perform extensive analysis of your blood to check for any micronutrient deficiencies.

Cellular nutrition

Your cells need the energy to function properly, but you may be feeding them the wrong nutrients. We approach thyroid treatment by showing you how to get the proper nutrients you need through better nutrition.

Neuro-detoxification

Renova Medical Center has found great success in restoring proper hormone balance through detoxifying the body. In today’s world, toxins are more prevalent than ever and, over time, they build up and disrupt your body functions. Through a tailored detoxification plan, you can get rid of toxins to allow your body to function and heal as nature intended.
