Thyroid Conditions

From hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s disease, and more, Vytal Health physicians take a functional medicine approach to improve thyroid health. 

By uncovering root causes through coordinated testing and in-depth consultations, we can improve the health of your thyroid gland, and in turn improve your health and well-being.

Thyroid problems are common, especially amongst women. Traditional physicians focus on a superficial approach to evaluating possible thyroid symptoms, often missing true thyroid disease. 

With in-depth lab testing, your Vytal Health physician can discover whether an untreated thyroid problem is to blame for your symptoms, then create a personalized plan that may include prescriptions, pharmaceutical-grade supplements, and lifestyle recommendations. 

Thyroid symptoms include: 

✔️ Brittle nails

✔️ Fatigue (feeling tired but wired)

✔️ Dry, scaly skin

✔️ Constipation

✔️ Weight gain

✔️ Coarse hair, hair loss or thinning

✔️ Feel cold all the time

✔️ Depression

How does functional medicine treat thyroid conditions differently?

Vytal Health physicians are doctors trained in functional medicine, which means they take a whole-person, comprehensive approach to uncovering the root causes of your thyroid imbalance. 

We know there is more to thyroid health than just checking TSH levels. In combination with in-depth lab testing and consultations, your physician will create a treatment plan that aims to not only get your thyroid levels in range, but also help to resolve the root cause if possible. 

This plan may include prescriptions, pharmaceutical-grade supplements, and lifestyle recommendations that are specific to your condition.

What to expect during your first consultation:

We are not traditional 15 minute appointments that leave you feeling frustrated, unheard, and dismissed. 

Your first consultation with us is 60-minutes long, giving you ample time to discuss your symptoms, medical and family history, lifestyle, past experiences treating your thyroid condition (if applicable), and what you’re currently experiencing. 

Your success is our success, and with us, it starts by listening.

What tests are used to determine thyroid conditions?

Most traditional clinicians approach the management of thyroid disorders with checking and reacting to only a single blood test: TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone). While TSH is an important indicator of thyroid health, it isn’t the only one. 

At Vytal Health, we take a more comprehensive view of the thyroid, evaluating not only TSH, but also Free T4 (FT4), Free T3 (FT3), thyroid antibodies, and sometimes other thyroid biomarkers. 

We also often check levels of nutrients important in thyroid function, like iron, magnesium, iodine, and selenium.
