Holistic Thyroid Treatment
A significant percentage of the population is suffering from thyroid disease without even knowing it. Diseases of the thyroid gland can result in either production of too much (overactive thyroid disease or hyperthyroidism), too little (underactive thyroid disease or hypothyroidism) thyroid hormone, thyroid nodules and/or goiter. All types of thyroid problems symptoms in women are much more common than thyroid problems in men.

If you want to achieve and maintain optimal health, a properly working thyroid gland is crucial.  Michael Rothman of MD Wellness is a thyroid doctor in NJ who can help you understand the health of your thyroid and provide holistic thyroid treatment for a whole-body approach.

Thyroid Imbalance Symptoms
While thyroid problems symptoms in women are more common than in men, as a thyroid doctor in NJ, we get suspicious when you have high LDL cholesterol and/or low HDL cholesterol. It’s especially disconcerting if you suffer from constipation, depression, fatigue, diabetes, “brain fog”, hormonal imbalances (like high cortisol or elevated insulin or high estrogen or low testosterone or low progesterone), can’t lose weight, and a long list of other subtle findings like a thick tongue or slow deep tendon reflexes. These are often thyroid imbalance symptoms that require holistic thyroid treatment.

Diagnosing Thyroid Disease
Unfortunately standard tests rarely detect thyroid deficiencies, so often times thyroid disease goes undiagnosed, untreated, poorly treated or undertreated. Specializing in holistic thyroid treatment, MD Wellness, thyroid doctor in NJ, can perform comprehensive testing to properly diagnose and treat your condition.

The tests for thyroid disease are notoriously inaccurate if not interpreted correctly.

  • The so-called normal range for TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is usually given as 0.45-4.5. The higher the TSH, the more likely it is that you have thyroid disease (assuming a normal pituitary gland and a normal immune system) However, substantial scientific evidence reveals that a TSH greater than 2.5 is actually quite significant for thyroid disease. In fact, a TSH >2.5 is associated with increased body weight, elevated LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, decreased HDL (“good”) cholesterol, greater risk of diabetes and stiffening of your arteries. So, if your TSH is greater than 2.5, you’re looking at a potentially serious medical condition, yet most traditional doctors are unaware of this information.
  • How about if your TSH is < 2.5 or even lower, like 0.8, does this “rule out” a low functioning thyroid (hypothyroidism)? Actually no, because certain hormonal and immune system imbalances can result in a artificially low TSH secondary to a poorly functioning pituitary gland. Therefore you and your traditional doctor may be fooled into thinking that your thyroid is not one of the culprits in your poor health.

At MD Wellness, we’ll perform a battery of tests to look for thyroid disease, including checking for thyroid antibodies, levels of total T3, total T4, free T3, free T4, sex hormone binding gobulin (SHBG), ferritin, subtle clues in the CBC (complete blood count), lipid panel, and other hormone levels that can affect your thyroid function.
