Southwest functional medicine uses a unique blend of functional medicine*, nutritional wellness, and diagnostic testing to provide a personalized plan designed to assist patients with low thyroid and reduce their symptoms to improve their overall quality of life. We offer comprehensive detailed lab testing to properly make and assess a diagnosis.
Although low thyroid and Hashimoto’s are often confused with each other, a patient can have a low thyroid without having Hashimoto’s. The thyroid is a small gland located in the neck that helps regulate the endocrine system. The endocrine system is responsible for many bodily functions such as heart rate, body temperature and breathing among others and hormone secretion. When the thyroid gland is not producing enough hormones, patients suffer from symptoms such as:
- Memory Loss
- Hot Flashes
- Hair Loss
- Joint Pain
- Trouble Losing Weight
- And more
Hypothyroidism can be caused by multiple factors. Some of these factors include pregnancy, diabetes, inflammation, and certain medications.
