Per the American Thyroid Association, “more than 12 percent of the US population will develop a thyroid condition during their lifetime”. That equates to approximately 20 million Americans that have some form of thyroid disease. Wow, I would call that an epidemic!
Hair loss, fatigue, weight gain and a myriad of other symptoms can indicate a thyroid disorder. If you suspect you have a thyroid disorder, please book an appointment with us or see your health practitioner as soon as possible. Long term thyroid disorders do a number on the body and are best treated as early as possible.
With that said, the healthcare community has a unique challenge to service this large number of people. In response to the demand, our offices have made holistic consultations, that include thyroid evaluation, a virtual experience. Virtual consultations provide a convenience to the client, and an access to a broader range of doctors that may not be in their local area, which allow people to find a doctor that is more in line with their health goals. Recognizing that time is our most valuable human resource, making healthcare evaluation easy for the patient to receive must be a top priority in today’s fast paced world.
With regards to the thyroid specifically, our office can either send people to a lab in their local area, or even send a blood spot testing kit directly to their home or office. Test results will evaluate hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Graves’ disease, and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
Upon receiving the results, Dr. Skip can then recommend a holistic protocol to address any abnormalities the testing identifies, and get the patient feeling better.
