Research states that 1 in 8 women will develop a thyroid disorder during her lifetime. We know that as many as 30% of people with a true thyroid problem WILL TEST NORMAL and will be dismissed by their doctors without further testing.
If you struggle with weight gain, permanent tiredness, cold hands and feet, energy dips in the day, brain fog, irritability, depression, hair loss, brittle nails, low iron, gut disorders or poor motivation; then your thyroid isn't working normally!
We do up to 9 different tests on your thyroid and then sometimes challenge it as well, to understand what is going on with it. The complex relationship between your adrenal glands, ovaries/testicles and thyroid, make a simple diagnosis almost impossible.
The thyroid gland is responsible for making thyroid hormones, which control the metabolism of all cells in your body. These hormones regulate the speed at which your body uses the fuel that is consumed, in particular carbohydrates and fat. This helps control your body’s temperature and fat percentage.
Functional medicine can help. Depending on the symptoms, blood test and physical examination, Dr Grant will decide on a combination of thyroid hormones or therapies that can cure what looks like a primary thyroid problem. He uses synthetic as well as compounded, natural thyroid treatments to obtain optimal function, without risking any other associated systems that depend on your thyroid function.
