Can You Help Me Even If My Thyroid Has Been Removed?
Without a doubt the most common question that I get on a day to day basis is:
“My thyroid was removed by my doctor X number of years ago but I still have symptoms. Is there any way you can help me?”
There are two reasons why people typically have their thyroid removed:
- Graves Disease (autoimmune Hyperthyroidism)
Regardless of why the thyroid gland was removed what happens is that you immediately become hypothyroid after the surgery or radioactive iodine treatment.
You no longer have a gland to produce hormones on your own so you would forever be dependent on external thyroid hormones like Synthroid or Armour. That is a fact and there is nothing that can be done to change THAT aspect.
But what happens when taking the hormone doesn’t resolve the symptoms of low thyroid?
What if you continue to have weight and metabolism issues, hair loss, brain fog, and fatigue no matter how much or which thyroid hormone you take?
If you still have low thyroid symptoms then we know that there is another culprit that is affecting your ability to use those hormones.
Until we discover what that culprit is and change/fix it, you will always struggle with those symptoms.
So if you have had your thyroid removed and you still have symptoms then you need our type of functional approach more than anybody.
Our functional approach gets to the root causes of the symptoms and will help you feel and function better. We will discover what is interfering with you ability to use the thyroid hormone that you are taking every day.
