TSH IS NOT A THYROID HORMONE

Traditional doctors often perform incomplete testing and prescribe a medication for the rest of your life. TSH is not a thyroid hormone, it is a brain hormone. But medicine relies on this number for clinical thyroid diagnosis. There is much more to the story than this. Production, transportation, conversion, absorption and destruction are all areas that can get in the way of normal thyroid function. But TSH and medical testing doesn’t scratch the surface.

UNDERSTANDING THE THYROID

Thyroid concerns offer a unique challenge for both patients and doctors alike. There are many symptoms associated with thyroid issues, including fatigue, weight gain, inability to control body temperature, thinning hair and brain fog, just to name a few. Terms such as hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, and Hashimoto’s get thrown around without fully understanding what they mean or what they are caused by. Medical testing is incomplete at best by look merely at TSH or even T4 and medications are often prescribed with ignoring the only contraindication, uncorrected adrenal insufficiency.

With the starting point of understanding that the thyroid is at the mercy of proper adrenal function, a more detailed snapshot is necessary to assess the status of the thyroid. Functions including production, transportation, conversion and absorption are critical to a normal functioning thyroid. The Wellness Way Approach and a complete thyroid test is required in order to have the most complete understanding of the thyroid and the ability to restore normal function.
