    #332 ENCORE: How we are missing subclinical hypothyroidism with Christa Biegler, RD

    For the next few weeks on The Less Stressed Life Podcast, I will be republishing our most popular episodes.

    Hair loss, cold hands and feeling tired are the big three for a sluggish thyroid. But relapsing gut issues, slow motility, sleep disruption, brain fog, slow metabolism, inflammation, low mood or anxiety, and dry skin can all be symptoms of a sluggish thyroid.

    In this episode, we talk about how we’ve had to change how we’re approaching thyroid health in practice to ensure clients feel their best and maintain their results.

    We talk about “dead ringers” of thyroid symptoms, blood versus tissue labs, thyroid nutrient cofactors and steps to take if you’re checking the boxes but not getting answers yet.
