Thyroid

In depth assessment of thyroid function is necessary. Addressing autoimmunity, if identified as the cause of thyroid dysfunction, is very important. Thyroid hormone therapy should be individualized with patient overall health goals included in treatment protocol and health planning.

 I encourage patients to try different therapy options, from readily available levothyroxine and liothyronine preparations, to compounded made-to-match special needs options.

It is important to guide therapy utilizing a combination of symptoms and laboratory results.
