Many patients complain to their doctors of common hypothyroid symptoms yet because their TSH falls in the ‘normal’ range, their thyroid is declared normal. Patients will walk into their doctors’ offices complaining of fatigue, weight gain, and depression, and their doctors will pass them prescriptions for sleeping pills and anti-depressants and tell them to just exercise more, instead of recognizing the underlying thyroid issue. Learn why a full thyroid physiology panel is critical for the proper diagnosis of your thyroid condition.
Dr Eric Balcavage and Dr Erica Riggleman introduce the Thyroid Answers Podcast.
The Podcast will focus on answering the questions people with thyroid symptoms and thyroid conditions want and need the answers to and just aren't getting from their doctors.
Both doctors are functional medicine specialists with an extensive background in nutrition, genetics, functional medicine and specifically thyroid physiology.
The focus of both of their practices is on helping people who struggle with chronic thyroid symptoms and conditions recover their health. They are using the Thyroid Answers Podcast as a vehicle to bring their education and clinical experience to a broader audience.
