"But I had my thyroid checked and it returned "normal"."
Why is thyroid health important? 

The thyroid hormone, produced by the thyroid gland, is a metabolic hormone. The two main types of thyroid hormones are Thyroxine (T4) and Triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones regulate the growth, differentiation, and metabolism of every cell. When triggered by the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) produced in the pituitary gland in the brain, the thyroid combines iodine stored in its cells with the amino acid tyrosine to create both T4 and T3. It produces approximately twenty percent T3 to eighty percent T4. Although T3 is the lesser of the two hormones, it is the more "active" hormone, and this form exerts its metabolic effects in our body! 

These hormones play critical roles in how our body uses the fuel we consume, particularly carbohydrates and fat, which help regulate our temperature and body fat percentage. So when we don't have the right balance, you can imagine what happens! 

What could be the problem?

As we get older, the thyroid gland produces less thyroid hormone, leading to a decrease in its amount in the body. 

You can also have difficulty converting T4 to T3 due to stress, insulin resistance, nutrient deficiencies, imbalances in the gut microbiome, chronic inflammation, and other hormonal imbalances. 

What is Hashimoto's? 

Hashimoto Thyroiditis (HT) is an autoimmune disease in which antibodies attack our thyroid gland.

  • HT accounts for 90% of all hypothyroidism diagnoses. 

  • Other possible reasons could be linked to environmental factors that can damage your thyroid, such as exposure to heavy metals, toxic chemicals, or insufficient intake of iodine uncommon in the Western world). 

 

It's important to know if you have HT since research suggests that your gut health plays a critical role in developing inflammatory, metabolic, and autoimmune diseases. HT is also associated with an increased risk of heart failure and coronary artery disease. 

Nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle changes are essential in improving your health to prevent illness. 

We hear this all the time. In standard medical practice, we are taught to measure thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), the routine test for evaluating your thyroid.  Elevated TSH indicates decreased thyroid activity, whereas lower levels indicate more. A diagnosis of hypothyroidism requires your values to fall outside the "normal" range. 

Here's the problem, many times, your

 

  • The thyroid lab range is broad, and your "normal" may not be optimal. There is an ongoing debate on what the "normal" range should be. 

  • Even with a "normal" TSH test, you may experience all the symptoms of thyroid deficiency, even though you are not full-blown hypothyroid. Only in the later stages might these levels drive a clinical diagnosis. 

  • Other times we see that the TSH is normal, and you are making a good amount of thyroid hormones, but your cells are not correctly using the thyroid hormone. This may cause all the symptoms of low thyroid in the presence of "normal" blood levels. 


If your level falls within the "normal" range, and you continue to experience many of the symptoms discussed, thyroid deficiency may still be the root cause.
