    I Went On Thyroid Hormone

    I Went On Thyroid Hormone

    Patients often come to our clinic wondering why they’re still experiencing symptoms despite taking thyroid medication. Come to find out, their labs and symptoms don’t correlate with a thyroid diagnosis. Instead, they find relief by discontinuing thyroid medication and improving their gut health. I've been down a similar path before—following a lab result, taking a thyroid hormone, and feeling worse, to then discovering a thyroid misdiagnosis. Listen in as I share my experience and how important it is to interpret thyroid test results correctly.

Diet Survey Results

I really enjoyed your results from your studies. I have a rare type of Diabetes resulting from Thyroid cancer and treatments. I am on an higher carbohydrate diet with less protein and moderate fat. If on a lower carbohydrate diet l run out of energy and get edgy. Since 2015 when l was diagnosed with diabetes l have lost over 50+ lbs and for the first time in years l feel comfortable in my own skin and body. Keep up your great podcasts from Canada.
