Thyroid Disorders

Why do I feel so bad all the time?

It was recently discovered that 90% of women on thyroid replacement continue to have symptoms including inability to lose weight, fatigue, cold all the time, brain fog and depression. Your thyroid controls the metabolism in your entire body. Most physicians use the most insensitive test to evaluate for low thyroid and fail to check the most important thyroid hormone – T3. Low tissue levels of thyroid are associated with diabetes, insulin resistance, chronic fatigue, PMS, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, iron deficiency, chronic stress and chronic pain.

How is Rejuv Medical Louisville different?

The majority of physicians use only synthroid T4 for replacement of hypothyroid, which is the inactive thyroid with hope it converts to the active form of thyroid T3. The problem is living in today’s society with high stress, frequent dieting, insulin resistance, obesity, poor sleep and poor diet that conversion is poor leading to persistent symptoms of low thyroid despite treatment. This leads to frustration on the part of the patient and the confused physician usually give depression medications out of futility that leads to side effects with no improvement. Our clinic utilizes cutting edge testing and therapy with nutritional supplements, assesses and treats stress / cortisol and checks for autoimmune thyroid few doctors do.
