Have you ever been told your thyroid levels are “normal” but you still feel off? Maybe you are dealing with brain fog, irritability, fatigue, hair loss, irregular periods, dry skin, unwanted weight gain, constipation or even depression.
I have been overwhelmed with patients that are dealing with all these symptoms, have a history of thyroid disorders in their family and yet have never had more than their TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) levels checked. So often doctors will wait until its about 5mIU/L. Please don’t wait this long, when you are so deep into the experience of unwanted symptoms. The sooner we know what’s going on we can be proactive!
Many times doctors only check your TSH levels and this does not give us the most representative picture of how your thyroid is functioning. It is important to check T4, T3, RT3, RT4 and TSH (or a combination depending on symptoms) to get the full picture. If years go by and only your TSH is checked and you are dealing with the above symptoms please consider finding a provider that will do a full thyroid panel on you.
