It’s frustrating when you know that something feels wrong, but your tests aren’t showing it. Today’s article is all about symptoms and thyroid lab tests, and what you should do if your labs say you’re normal, or even optimal, but you still don’t feel quite right.
It has gotten to the point where some doctors even go and ignore labs altogether, and start to adjust medication based on symptoms. They assume that if you have symptoms including:
- Hair Loss
- Weight gain
It means that you simply need more thyroid and there is nothing more to it. And, in some cases, thyroid can help, but that help won’t last if it is not the real culprit or at the root of the issue.
Today, I want to share some insights that should help you sort through this. This way, when your symptoms and your lives aren’t necessarily in sync, you’ll know what to do (maybe you want to kick things off with a second opinion? If so, feel free to click this link).
