Thyroid and Adrenal Care

Is it my thyroid?

Thyroid symptoms include weight gain, constipation, low moods, fatigue, hair loss, low libido, irregular or heavy periods, fertility problems, heart palpitations, temperature intolerances and many more.

To properly diagnose thyroid you need a complete thyroid panel, not just a TSH level. This should include TSH, free T3, free T4 and thyroid antibodies (TPO and TGB). We also want these levels to be in the optimal range, not just the normal range.

Regular screening, awareness of symptoms, and effective treatment options can make a substantial difference in quality of life for those affected by thyroid disease. The goal at Vitality at GLO Antiaging is to provide comprehensive information on thyroid disease and hypothyroidism, offering resources and support to those who may be experiencing symptoms or seeking more knowledge about this common thyroid disorder and provide a treatment plan that addresses the root cause of the disorder and symptoms.

1 in 8 women will experience thyroid issues in their life time.

Hypothyroidism, a condition where the thyroid gland doesn't produce enough thyroid hormone, is a significant health issue that affects about 1 in 8 women at some point in their lives. This imbalance can cause a range of symptoms, including fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, irregular or heavy periods, fertility problems, mood changes and more. It's particularly common among women, especially as they age. Understanding this condition is crucial for early detection and effective management.

A Holistic Approach to Thyroid Health and Wellness

We also need to look at your adrenal glands, gut health, blood sugar regulation, sex hormones, and nutrients in your diet. As it is not just about the thyroid gland.

Even if you get diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease or autoimmune thyroiditis, you are often given a prescription and told that is the solution. There is more to managing thyroid conditions than just a prescription.

If your thyroid is not functioning optimally, then you will not function well.

Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA): Symptoms and Treatments

What about my adrenals? Do I have adrenal fatigue?

Chronic unmanaged stress leads to numerous physical and psychological symptoms. You may have heard the term adrenal fatigue or adrenal burnout. The idea that chronic stress leads to our adrenal not functioning optimally resulting in abnormal cortisol levels. However, the adrenals do not work in isolation, they are part of a complex endocrine system, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Cortisol is one of the primary hormones. This is called HPA axis dysfunction.

Symptoms of HPA axis dysfunction include:fatigue, sleep disturbances, poor immune health, brain fog, issues with concentrate, inability to manage stress, anxiety, depression, sugar and salt cravings, inflammation, unexplained weight loss or gain, hair loss, weak nails, poor circulation, low appetite, low blood pressure and dizziness.

Treatment for HPA axis dysfunction focuses on management of perception of psychological stress, building stress resilience, reduction in physical stressors (like low calories, high intensity exercise, lack of sleep), lifestyle factors, and sometimes supplements. Finding balance to restore health.
