IS YOUR THYROID PROBLEM CAUSING:

  • Sexual problems
  • Sluggishness
  • Brain fog
  • Weight Gain
  • Hair thinning

YOU MAY NOT BE CONVERTING INACTIVE THYROID HORMONE TO ITS ACTIVE FORM

Did you know 30-45% of T4 (inactive thyroid hormone) is converted to T3 (active form) mostly in the liver?

10-18% is converted to reverse T3

The remainder is converted to a sulfate form of T3 and thyroacetic acid. Both of these are inactive until they’re acted upon the gut flora and returned to active T3. Hence the importance of healthy gut flora with primary or secondary thyroid dysfunction.


T4 TO T3 CONVERSION IS SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED WITH DISEASES AND INFECTIONS

Chronic infections may linger for years with only mild symptoms so you may not even know you have one.


ADRENAL STRESS

High cortisol blocks the conversion to active thyroid hormone. Thyroid support increases metabolism, placing more stress on the adrenal glands, which they may not be ready for. Supporting these small glands is important.

We need to clean up the estrogen load that’s built up your whole life. Estrogen dominance reduces an enzyme that converts T4 to T3.

Some of the markers assessed with our thyroid panels include (more extensive than most hospital panels):

  • TSH
  • Total T4
  • Total T3
  • Free T4
  • Free T3
  • T3 Uptake
  • Free Thyroxine Index
  • Thyroid antibodies (auto-immunity)
