Signs That You May Have a Thyroid Problem

Greenville SC Thyroid Clinic Shares – Signs That You May Have a Thyroid Problem

Did you know that symptoms such as headaches or migraines, insomnia, depression, GI issues, low libido, weight gain and temperature sensitivity are all signs of a thyroid disorder? Believe it or not, these are only just a few of the symptoms that can indicate thyroid issues and you may only experience one or two of them. That’s why it’s so easy to attribute these symptoms to other health issues. But if you find that nothing you do is bringing any relief from your symptoms, you may want to have your thyroid checked.

Now it’s important to note that you must determine the cause of your thyroid disorder in order to effectively manage it. This does not mean managing symptoms only. Comprehensive testing must be done in order to find out exactly what’s causing your thyroid condition, and unfortunately, a TSH test alone is not enough to provide all of the necessary information.

Traditional medicine bases their care plans on TSH testing alone, so where can you go to determine the underlying causes of your thyroid disorder? The answer lies in functional wellness. This is personally tailored care with a practitioner who is dedicated to finding answers through comprehensive testing as to what’s causing your thyroid problem, and solutions for your condition that will help you to take charge of your own health for the rest of your life.

Comprehensive testing should include a complete blood chemistry panel, as well as saliva testing for GI issues, urine and stool samples, and heavy metal toxicity testing. These tests give your practitioner the complete picture of your health so that they can determine exactly where imbalances are occurring and how to correct them.

A functional wellness practitioner also offers customized care because they understand that no two patients are alike and every patient will have their own unique symptoms, triggers and responses to therapies. This is very different from the “one size fits all” approach that you typically find in traditional medicine. Customized care is really the best way for you to achieve the results that you’ve been striving for.

When you work with a functional wellness provider you can expect, comprehensive testing to determine the root cause of your condition, customized care designed to provide individualized solutions for you, and a partnership with a practitioner who advocates for your optimum health. Patients truly appreciate the personal attention and one on one care that they receive from their functional wellness provider.
