Is Your Thyroid Whacked?

Do you wake up feeling tired? Are you so tired at the end of your workday that you just want to sink into the couch and be done? Fatigue is the number one reason patients come to LowTE Florida – followed by weight gain. You’re getting older. Maybe you are a bit heavier than you used to be – possibly some brain fog? Is your hair thinning? A sluggish thyroid can lead to increased body fat and affect your energy level, mood, hair, mental clarity and overall wellbeing.
The thyroid gland sits center on the lower part of your neck. Thyroid hormone is important for regulation of body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, metabolism, and much more.
Many times, optimizing thyroid hormones can increase energy for both men and women. For many people, thyroid optimization can lead to clearer thinking, waking feeling more rested and ready to face the day! A simple blood test can prove that it isn’t your fault; you just are simply not producing as much thyroid as you did a few years back.
Traditional medicine practitioners tend to rely on only one blood test to evaluate the thyroid, the TSH. At LowTE Florida, we dig a little deeper, checking on the thyroid hormones that are being utilized throughout your body (T3 & T4), not just the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) which just indicates what is going on between your thyroid gland and your brain. For a better description go to LowTEFlorida.com and look for my interview with Endocrinologist, Gary Pepper, MD.
Hormone and thyroid replacement therapy has been getting a lot of attention lately. Many practitioners go to a weekend course and add BHRT to their practice – without the in-depth knowledge and passion that of a hormone expert who utilizes science, not guesswork, Carolyn Zaumeyer.
At LowTE Florida® we provide individualized treatment based on your biochemistry and your medical history using the proven BioTE® method – grounded in science, not guesswork. For more information, go to: LowTEFlorida.com or call 954-791-4498.
