THYROID HORMONE DYSFUNCTION
(Temperature dysregulation, changes in bowel habits, hair loss, cognitive alterations, fatigue, mood disturbances)
The doctors at Healix Health perform comprehensive thyroid testing beyond the standard screening blood test, TSH. We recognize that looking only at TSH may fail to uncover subclinical thyroid disease. Additionally, not all patients feel optimal within the standard population reference range for TSH. Thyroid disease has a very unique set of symptoms. Diagnosis and optimization of thyroid dysfunction must take into consideration these symptoms in addition to more comprehensive laboratory tests.
The healthy functioning of many of our most critical bodily processes such as temperature regulation, bowel habits, cognitive clarity, energy, hair/skin/nail health, weight, etc. depends on our thyroid hormones. These physiological processes can be altered by dysfunctions in how we produce, metabolize and/or utilize thyroid hormones. Treatment is aimed at uncovering the imbalance and rectifying the specific underlying cause.
