Hypothyroidism is one of the most common undiagnosed medical conditions in the world. Every year, thousands of people go through life ignoring even the most obvious signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism. Some of these signs and symptoms include, extreme sensitivity to cold, including consistently cold hands and feet, hair loss, weight gain or difficulty losing weight, fatigue, sleep disturbances, even mental clarity. Even harder than realizing the signs of hypothyroidism, is finding a physician willing to make a definitive diagnosis of hypothyroidism. In regenerative medicine, here at LifeXL, we take a much more comprehensive look at thyroid labs so that an accurate diagnosis can be made.
In mainstream medicine, often a TSH or thyroid stimulating hormone, is the only test run to diagnose thyroid conditions. The reality is however, there is much more to diagnosing thyroid conditions than the TSH level alone can determine. In order to get a truly accurate idea of what is going on, levels of both the active and inactive forms of thyroid, as well as thyroid antibodies need to be determined as well. By drawing these tests, not only can we confirm true hypothyroidism, but autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis can be diagnosed as well. Seeing as your thyroid is a hormone, Bio-identical thyroid replacement is often the safest and most efficacious way to solve thyroid issues.
