If you’ve had symptoms such as low energy, or weight gain, you have probably read or heard that you should have your thyroid checked. These are some of the most common symptoms of hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland), but are also vague and could represent many different conditions.
You may have also heard that you should take certain supplements to “support your thyroid health”. You may have wondered if this is true, especially if you are following a balanced diet.
In this video, Dr. Teresa Dean and I discuss the truth (and myths) about thyroid health and thyroid supplements. We also talk about signs, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of HYPOTHYROIDISM.
If you have any general questions about thyroid health, hormone health, or any other health topic, we would love to hear from you! For any specific medical concerns, including changes to your diet, lifestyle, supplements or medications, please talk to your healthcare professional.
To your healthy thyroid + plenty of energy!
