What Does My Thyroid Do?
Two words will sum it all up, Hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism. Where each person falls is all in the Blood work. See below which one describes you...
It is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the neck just below the Adam's apple. It is part of a complex network of glands called the endocrine system. The endocrine system is responsible for harmonizing many of the body's activities. The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the body's metabolism (the process of creating and using energy). There are several different disorders that can arise when the thyroid produces too much hormone (hyperthyroidism) or not enough (hypothyroidism).
Thyroid hormones have a direct effect on most organs, including the heart, which beats faster and harder under the influence of increased thyroid hormones (this is why heart problems can often accompany chronic thyroid problems in women, and perhaps why heart problems are more common in women under the age of 50).
T3 is the more active hormone. It’s more important for cellular function, and in fact, T4 is converted to T3 in the gut, liver and the body’s peripheral tissues. Basically, T4 is just the foundation for the more active hormone, T3. One of the problems in some thyroid disorders is that you may have trouble converting T4 to T3 in your tissues. Have you been checked for this? This can create a deficiency of T3, disrupting the body’s ability to properly regulate metabolism, which leads to specific symptoms.
We identify the physiological cause of the problem, and CORRECT the "causes"!
First… he will assess where you stand metabolically. He will review your most recent blood work to see what your current doctor has been doing and what has not been looked at. Did you know most doctors will only run TSH, T3, T4 and FreeT4. But Dr. Corey wants to see exactly where the dysfunction is happening. The comprehensive Thyroid Panel that we recommend will also include FTI, T3 Uptake, FreeT3, rT3, TBG, TPO-Ab and TgAb. The full thyroid panel in conjunction with a full metabolic panel, lipid panel and a CBC will give him a great starting point on your road back to health.
Here are some of the other tests we use:
Second…since all auto immune diseases stem from the gut. That is the next place he looks for dysfunction. Are you bloated after meals maybe it can be gluten sensitivity, are you gluten free and still feel off after meals maybe it is SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth). Dr. Corey will run specific sensitivity testing to determine if you have reaction to gluten (wheat, rye, oats, and barley), milk, eggs, yeast, and soy. If you are sensitive to ANY of these food groups, it could be making your symptoms worse; it will increase inflammation in your brain and throughout your whole body! The only way to find out if you are suffering from any of these sensitivities is to run the thorough tests.
Hyperthyroidism occurs due to an overproduction of thyroid hormones, but the condition can occur in several different way some including:

Hypothyroidism begins from an underproduction of thyroid hormones. Since your body's energy production requires certain amounts of thyroid hormones, a drop in hormone production leads to lower energy levels. Some causes of hypothyroidism include:
