On today’s episode of Rethink my Health, Dr. Agolli and Dr. Burdette will be talking about Thyroid function and will be discussing top nutritional strategies for supporting the thyroid. The team will go over hallmark symptoms of underactive thyroid function. You will learn the difference between clinical and subclinical hypothyroidism and that “in-range” numbers may still present with hypothyroid symptoms. You will learn about thyroid hormones and clinical tests your provider may be using to diagnose thyroid function.
Integrative and functional medicine doctors have great success treating Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism with dietary modifications, gut repair, nutrition, and stress reduction. If you’ve been told that you should just live with Hashimoto’s, your doctor may not be aware of these natural treatments that help to retrain the immune system to live in harmony with the thyroid gland.
If you find yourself having trouble pronouncing your diagnosis- then you may have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. It means that your immune system is mistakenly attacking your thyroid gland. Its name comes from the Japanese surgeon who first discovered the illness.
