Thyroid Function

Thyroid Function

At Remedi Wellness, we run a full thyroid panel (TSH, T3, T4, anti-TPO) when we do lab testing. We get imperative information needed to assess the function of the thyroid gland. Did you know that hypothyroidism is common, especially in women? Thyroid gland efficiency depends on many co-factors and hormones in the body.

Some low functioning thyroid symptoms include:

  • Muscle aches and pain
  • Brittle, thin nails
  • Hair Loss
  • Sluggish metabolism or weight gain
  • Cold intolerance ( always feeling cold)
  • Low energy
  • Constipation

Some co-factors needed for proper thyroid function include:

  • Iron
  • Iodine
  • Zinc
  • Selenium
  • Magnesium

While less common, hyperthyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland is overactive. This condition presents with symptoms such as:

  • Increased perspiration
  • Weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Goitre
  • Tremor
  • Warm, moist skin
  • Exophthalmos (eyes protruding out)
  • Weight loss
  • Anxiety
  • Racing heart or palpitation
  • Diarrhea

Our naturopathic doctors aim to look at lab values along with the symptoms that patients struggle with. We will develop a comprehensive treatment plan to resolve the symptoms and improve your overall health.
