Since the thyroid gland controls the body’s metabolism, it can affect all of the systems of the body such as the gut, liver, gall bladder, hormones, cholesterol, brain (via neurotransmitters), adrenal glands, breasts, ovaries, and heart. In short, the thyroid “runs” our metabolism — it’s literally the “gas pedal” of the body and when not functioning properly can effect multiple body systems and health.
There are many different blood tests that can be analyzed in order to determine exactly how your thyroid is affected. Most doctors just use the same old blood tests and never bother checking beyond those. Unlike most other doctors, Dr. Michael Corey provides comprehensive blood testing to get to the root cause of the patients condition,
Blood tests may include:
Dr.Corey also tests to see if patients have an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease is where your immune system attacks a particular area of the body (like the thyroid, for instance). He tests for specific thyroid antibodies to determine if you suffer from an autoimmune thyroid disease. Up to 97% of patients with hypothyroidism have an autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's) and NOT a primary thyroid problem.
Dr. Corey can also check for gluten antibodies, myelin (fatty sheath around the nerves) antibodies, cerebellar (back part of the brain controlling balance, coordinated movement, and spinal muscles) antibodies. Additionally, we can test your adrenal glands (small glands on top of the kidneys) via an Adrenal Stress Index (ASI), as many thyroid sufferers also suffer from adrenal problems.
Based on your personal blood chemistry, our thyroid recovery protocols can quickly determine which products will benefit you the most and get you on the road to recovery. When nutritional supplement recommendations are not based on your current blood work, they are most often inaccurate. Your specific condition must be analyzed via your blood chemistry results in order to make effective nutritional recommendations.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not suggesting you stop taking your current medications. We work WITH your M.D. to get you feeling better as quickly as possible.
Ask yourself the following questions:
Now, imagine your life without thyroid symptoms. Think of feeling like yourself again and doing all of the activities and things you used to do.
