In case you hadn't heard, your thyroid is a super-important factor in how you feel and look. And if your thyroid is not working well, it can throw off your mood, metabolism, sex drive, digestion, and immune system. It's also no secret that thyroid problems are often misdiagnosed or go undiagnosed and that many underlying thyroid problems won't show up on basic labs run by your conventional doctor.
That is why in functional medicine we dig deeper and we look at the full picture of how your thyroid works. One extremely important factor in this is possible nutrient deficiencies. If you are missing key nutrients that your body needs to make healthy hormones, you are missing the raw materials your body needs to thrive.
