Thyroid Optimization: What You Need to Know

Thyroid Optimization: What You Need to Know

Thyroid disease is one of the most common medical conditions in the country. In America alone, an estimated 27 million individuals have thyroid disease, which could potentially be as high as 60 million. That’s where thyroid optimization comes into play.

But unfortunately, thyroid disease is also one of the more difficult medical conditions to diagnose and treat. This is exactly why the estimated number of people with thyroid disease could be off by millions. And many people who have thyroid disease may not even know it until it becomes a major and unavoidable problem.

It all starts by understanding the thyroid’s role in the body and reading the signs there’s a problem with your thyroid health. 

What Is the Thyroid and What Does It Do?

The thyroid gland is a tiny organ situated in the neck, connected to the windpipe. As a gland, the thyroid creates and releases hormones, which have a wide effect on other functions within your body.

Most importantly, the thyroid gland helps control your metabolism through a few specific hormones:

When your thyroid is not working properly and does not produce the correct amount of hormones (which is the condition known as thyroid disease), it can have a long list of impacts and effects on your health and everyday life.

Risk Factors of Thyroid Disease

Many inherent risk factors may increase your chances of developing thyroid disease.

And many of these factors start with your physical and genetic make-up. These inherent traits can increase your risk of thyroid disease and include the following.

Also, other factors – such as your weight, body composition, and fat distributions – may come into play when it comes to thyroid disease. This is exactly why we use a variety of in-depth diagnostic tools to understand your risk of thyroid disease, as well as your individualized treatment.

Thyroid Disease Symptoms

One of the reasons why thyroid disease can go for years without a proper diagnosis is that providers link thyroid issue symptoms to other conditions.

As such, pay close attention to warning signs. Some symptoms may seem like they are connected to a different or more generalized medical issue, like:

Clear Indicators

However, they can be a clear indication of thyroid disease, as described below. 

As you can likely see by reviewing the list, these symptoms can easily indicate other medical issues. But if you notice any of the above, it’s time to schedule an in-depth consultation with the Lamkin Clinic to determine if the root cause of any of these effects is, in fact, thyroid disease.

How We Can Help You With Thyroid Optimization

There are many potential missteps in traditional medicine when it comes to diagnosing and treating patients’ thyroid issues.

This is exactly why millions of Americans are currently living with thyroid disease but have never been properly diagnosed.

In a traditional doctor’s office setting, they only assess TSH when screening for thyroid problems. This process can omit many individuals who have had low thyroid hormone levels for years.

And providers need to address these thyroid issues immediately! There can often be a disconnect:

That’s why Dr. Lamkin’s approach is different and much more in-depth
