Common Symptoms of Thyroid and Autoimmune Conditions
Suffering from chronic symptoms that affect your ability to live your life can be frustrating. Many people visit multiple doctors and specialists and still can’t find good answers about what is causing symptoms like:
- Chronic fatigue or exhaustion
- "Foggy" brain or memory loss
- Trouble sleeping
- Intestinal or digestive issues
- Joint pain
People often brush these things off as just being the result of a busy and active lifestyle, or the result of stress from kids, work, and life in general. But when they start to get in the way of your ability to live your life it’s time to figure out exactly what’s causing these symptoms—a proper diagnosis is critical to find the right treatment. We start with extensive testing that delves deeper than most lab panels, then add testing for everything from food sensitivity or intolerance to parasites, hormone imbalances, and adrenal function.
Once we know what might be causing your symptoms, we can work on identifying the triggers that could lead to new or worsening symptoms. Many treatment plans only try to mitigate the symptoms with medications that can come with serious side effects. Our approach is different. We work to understand exactly what is happening inside your body so we can effectively eliminate the issues you are experiencing today while avoiding future flare-ups or a return of symptoms.
The best way to figure out what’s going on in your body is through testing. We go beyond traditional tests to look for everything from allergic reactions to hormonal imbalances. More traditional medicine can sometimes miss these nuances by not conducting the right tests to look for the right things. In addition, we know that the symptoms of certain conditions sometimes mimic other illnesses. With our extensive experience in addressing thyroid issues, autoimmune disorders, and more, we can identify patterns that could indicate an issue and help you learn how to deal with those things.
