We test a Complete Thyroid Profile

Looking only at a TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test is not enough to evaluate how your thyroid is functioning. In addition, the TSH is often misread as normal because you fall in the “normal” range. At Laura Miles MD, we routinely test a complete thyroid profile looking at the conversion of your thyroid hormone as well as thyroid antibodies. If a thyroid problem has been determined, we optimize the thyroid with replacement of T4 and T3 formulas that are dosed in similar ratios as your body produces. Traditional medications like Synthroid and Levothyroxine are only T4 replacements. Our patients feel better when T3 is added. In addition, interventions to help slow the destruction of your thyroid are recommended if you have antibodies to your thyroid (known as Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroid Disease or Grave’s Disease).

Do you have an undiagnosed condition?

Have you been to every doctor and had “every” test run and still don’t know why you feel the way you do? Maybe it is time to start thinking out-of-the-box. Sometimes a new approach is needed to try and put the pieces of the puzzle together.
