How is your thyroid doing? Is it working?

You may have a number of symptoms that indicate a low functioning thyroid, or you may have symptoms that show signs of high functioning thyroid. How do you know?

You have to run some tests to know for sure. Simply, you can even watch a few things like breathing rate lowering and a drop in pulse rate from seated to laying position you may be suspicious of low thyroid. 

But to know you must get a TSH, total T4, and total T3, at least. The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis which is actually an immune problem. An autoimmune process that causes the body to produce antibodies that attack foreign matter as well as OWN BODY TISSUE. For this reason Hashimoto’s thyroiditis goes undetected in some cases for a person’s entire life. 

Just think if they found out what was going on and what to do about it. Diet comes into play as well as balancing the immune system hyperactivity. Metabolic balancing also plays a very important role because of what we find influencing these systems in the first place.

If you don’t feel well, are chronically tired like exhausted during the day, don’t sleep well at night, have brain fog…you may have a thyroid that isn’t working well. Find out what is going and get the right course of care to get your thyroid and your health back  again.
