Are you feeling tired all the time? Get your thyroid and hormones tested at Cambiati Wellness today!
Do you suspect that you have a thyroid problem, but your doctor is refusing to run a full panel? Has your doctor told you that your results are normal and yet you don’t feel right? Does fatigue continue to drag you down every day? Do you have weight issues, brain fog, or hair loss? Are you often sweaty, revved up, or anxious?
If the answer to many of these questions is a resounding yes, then you might be dealing with a hidden thyroid problem. Oftentimes, doctors perform thyroid panels that are incomplete and don’t show the full picture. This leads the doctor to tell you that everything appears to be fine and within range, even though you might have a hidden issue that’s contributing to your symptoms. Moreover, the symptoms of thyroid disorders and hormonal imbalances can be quite similar, so the symptoms are often chalked up to menopause and the problem persists.
This is where Cambiati Wellness enters the picture. We can perform a full thyroid panel and test your hormones to determine where the problem lies. Our nutritionists then help you create a plan of action based on your results.
So, let’s learn a little more about hormone changes and thyroid disorders:
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland situated in the front of your neck. It produces hormones that regulate your metabolism and enable your body to use energy. When you have a thyroid disorder, it can rev up or slow down your metabolism by disrupting the creation and synthesis of thyroid hormones. When your hormone levels become too high or too low, you might experience a wide array of symptoms.
An inexplicable change in weight is a common sign of a thyroid disorder. Your weight gain might be the result of low levels of thyroid hormones in your body due to a condition called hypothyroidism. In the case of high thyroid hormone production, your body might lose more weight. This condition is called hyperthyroidism.
Hypothyroidism is far more common than hyperthyroidism. When left untreated, it can raise your cholesterol levels and make you far more susceptible to heart attacks and strokes. In severe instances, exceptionally low levels of thyroid hormone can trigger unconsciousness and a life-threatening drop in body temperature.
On the other hand, untreated hyperthyroidism can cause brittle bones and serious heart problems. Thyroid disorders tend to impact your body’s energy levels and your mood. Hypothyroidism can make people sluggish, tired, and depressed. Meanwhile, hyperthyroidism can lead to sleeping troubles, anxiety, irritability, and restlessness.
Hypothyroidism is commonly caused by Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune disorder in which the body attacks the thyroid gland. This leads to a damaged thyroid, which is unable to produce sufficient hormones. This disorder tends to run in families.
Hyperthyroidism is commonly caused by Graves’ disease, another autoimmune condition that attacks the thyroid gland, resulting in the release of high levels of thyroid hormones. The hallmark of Graves’ disease is a noticeable and uncomfortable swelling behind the eyes.
At Cambiati Wellness, we can perform a full thyroid panel, helping us determine the root cause of your problems. This will enable us to fix the issue and help you get back to a healthy body.
Your hormones affect all aspects of your health such as sleep, mood, immunity, metabolism, heart health, and even your appearance. An imbalance of one hormone can kickstart a chain reaction of events in your body that might alter your other hormones. This is why you need to have a deep understanding of your hormones to ensure your body’s wellness.
