#228 How we are missing subclinical hypothyroidism: "Your labs are fine, but you're not fine" thyroid edition with Christa Biegler, RD
Hair loss, cold hands and feel and feeling tired are the big three for a sluggish thyroid. But relapsing gut issues, slow motility, sleep disruption, brain fog, slow metabolism, inflammation, low mood or anxiety, and dry skin can all be symptoms of a sluggish thyroid.
In this episode, we talk about how we’ve had to change how we’re approaching thyroid health in practice to ensure clients feel their best and maintain their results.
We talk about “dead ringers” of thyroid symptoms, blood versus tissue labs, thyroid nutrient cofactors and steps to take if you’re checking the boxes but not getting answers yet.
If you’re experiencing the issues mentioned in this episode (tired, gut symptoms, etc) and want testing + support, you can get it from our program Food Sensitivity Solutions & The Fatigue Fix. In it, we correct imbalances in the gut with testing and fill in the nutrient gaps (based on testing) depriving the thyroid of working properly.
