Low Thyroid can have an adverse effect on so many aspects of your life
Low-functioning thyroid has become all too common.
Getting Your Thyroid Right
Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disorder, is a very common cause of Hypothyroidism.
This autoimmune response is triggered by the body perceiving the thyroid gland as an invader, prompting the production of antibodies that launch an attack. The consequences are twofold: a significant drop in thyroid hormone levels, leading to hypothyroidism, and the gland’s release of excess hormones, causing hyperthyroidism spikes. As the antibodies continue their assault, the thyroid may become depleted, further contributing to insufficient hormone production and hypothyroidism.
Affecting approximately 1 in 4 women, Hashimoto’s Disease commonly manifests between ages 45 and 65, although it can occur at other stages of life and also affects men. Detecting this condition accurately necessitates blood tests specifically targeting antibodies, as standard TSH tests may not reveal the autoimmune aspect.
Given its autoimmune nature, relying solely on medication for thyroid treatment may fall short of addressing Hashimoto’s comprehensively. The roots of this disorder may extend to deficiencies in Vitamin D, Cortisol, or DHEA, as well as low levels of Iodine and Selenium.
While treating it as Hypothyroidism, it is also good to make some lifestyle changes as part of treatment.
"Just after the first visit the difference in my energy level was amazing . I'm retired and I found myself sitting on the couch and taking a nap during the day. After my first doctor visit and shot I redid the whole front flower bed of my house in 2 days which is something I couldn't have done even close to a month ago. The results were amazing I feel like my old self again." - Sue G.

What They Say
Costs and Insurance
We have founded our practice on affordable pricing for exceptional health care.
We have very affordable cash rates for our lab testing…you will be pleasantly surprised! However, established patients can use insurance for their labs. We cannot verify lab benefits for patients, so we recommend that you know your lab benefits prior to your lab draw.
We are designed as a cash-based practice, but our Billing Manager can provide you with a Superbill to file your own insurance claim. However, Medicare does not allow this. We are unable to provide Medicare patients with a Superbill.
