BEST Greenville SC Thyroid Support

You’re exhausted all of the time, yet you can’t sleep at night. You suffer from headaches multiple times a week. You often face constipation or loose bowels. You exercise and eat right, yet you continue to gain weight. These scenarios describe just a few of the symptoms that someone with a thyroid condition may suffer from. The bad news is that over time these symptoms can become quite debilitating if your thyroid condition is not managed effectively.

It’s very easy to mistake symptoms of thyroid dysfunction with other health issues, but it’s very important that if you suffer from these symptoms that you have proper testing done. Some of the symptoms of thyroid are: Headaches, temperature sensitivity, chronic fatigue, GI issues, insomnia, hair loss, brain fog, depression, irritability, joint pain, and anxiety. You may not experience all of these symptoms, but even one can be a sign of a thyroid disorder.

It’s important to understand that comprehensive testing is crucial to proper diagnosis of your thyroid condition. When you visit your primary care provider, they will typically order a TSH test. If your TSH, or thyroid-stimulating hormone, levels are within normal range they won’t offer you any further treatment. However, did you know that there are at least six other thyroid markers that need to be checked also? If these markers are left unaddressed, it could mean that you do in fact have a thyroid disorder even though your TSH was within “normal” range.

On the other hand, if your TSH is not within normal range, your primary care provider will prescribe thyroid medication for you. Again, if your provider has not checked any other thyroid markers your medication may not be serving you effectively. This explains why so many patients who are on thyroid medication still suffer from debilitating thyroid symptoms. It’s a frustrating and vicious cycle for patients.

There is good news, however. Many patients are achieving success by partnering with a functional wellness provider. These practitioners offer comprehensive and customized care that begins with a thorough evaluation and lab work. You see they are looking for the complete picture of your health because they understand that if one body system is failing, it affects all of the others. It is only by alleviating the root cause of your thyroid condition that you will begin to feel better and your body will be able to heal itself.

There is even better news. These practitioners offer care that is safe, effective and drug-free. Patients are able to learn about their condition and what triggers their symptoms so that they are able to manage their own health, this in turn gives them independence from the vicious cycle of the “one size fits all” model for care.
