Thyroid Optimization Treatment

Quality Holistic Services from Our Manhattan Immunologist

Hypothyroidism is a common condition that can affect the body in subtle yet significant ways. At Mitchell Medical Group, we offer simple tests to determine whether or not your thyroid is a crucial factor in your underlying medical conditions.

Hypothyroidism has even been associated with conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and other autoimmune disorders. Thankfully, we give the expertise in diagnosing subtle cases of hypothyroidism to help you regain your vitality.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

If you have any of the following symptoms, you may suffer from hypothyroidism:

  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Cold Intolerance
  • Depression
  • Constipation

How We Test for Hypothyroidism

At Mitchell Medical Group, we use a number of comprehensive tests that go beyond simply measuring the TSH and T4 levels in your body. In addition, we test free T4, free T3, and reverse T3, we will also utilize our three-step process to search for areas where your system is stressed and unbalanced. We check for the specific antibodies that attack the thyroid, and we check the free thyroid hormones, T3, T4, as well as TSH and reverse T3.

Unfortunately, many doctors overlook an underactive thyroid because the T4 is normal. This is a mistake! An underactive thyroid involves a high clinical suspicion based on the patient’s thyroid disease symptoms.

Oftentimes, people are told their thyroid is “borderline” or normal and the same tests are repeated for years. But if you suffer from a variety of symptoms consistent with hypothyroidism, with no relief, treating your thyroid might help your condition.

At Mitchell Medical Group, our physicians listen to our patients and not just test results. We have seen patients who feel perfectly fine and their blood tests indicate a serious illness. Conversely, we have seen patients whose blood tests are normal but suffer from debilitating symptoms associated with hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia.

Dr. Dean Mitchell M.D. – Patient Case Study

Last year I had a patient complaining of burning eyelids and eye tearing. She thought it was an allergy and asked to be tested for environmental allergens, as she assumed it was due to pollen or mold. I asked her for a detailed history and found she also had symptoms of muscle pains, being tired a lot and was very irritated that she couldn’t lose 10 lbs despite working out with a trainer.

I suspected she had more than just allergies going on, and in her case, I was right. Believe it or not, she had no allergies. But her thyroid was sluggish as seen with an elevated TSH of 8.0. She also had elevated thyroid antibodies consistent with thyroid disease. I treated her with a natural thyroid product that combines T4 and T3.

Within a month, she had an amazing reaction to the treatment. Her eyelid symptoms disappeared, her muscle aches went away and her energy rebounded.

Her only complaint was – “I still didn’t lose my 10 lbs!” Her diet history revealed she likes having 2 glasses of wine with dinner every night. Until she cuts back on her alcohol it may be a while until she loses those pounds.
