Testing for your thyroid
Have you ever been told your #thyroid is "fine" but you suffer from #fertility concerns, fatigue, weight gain, constipation, dryskin, hairloss, muscle and joint pain, or insomnia?
Have you actually had your ENTIRE thyroid panel evaluated to make sure you are within the OPTIMAL range, rather than just putting you into the "normal" category?
It is important to understand lab reference ranges. References ranges are usually established by collecting results from a large population and determining from the data an expected average (mean) result and expected differences from that average (standard deviation).
This means that just because you fall "within the range", things may not be working optimally for YOU. Looking for more insight on your thyroid labs? Listen to this episode to get everything you need to know !

Timing your hormone bloodwork
Suffer from period problems?
This is some of the bloodwork I will recommend when we are evaluating hormones, but the majority of the time my patients are not being told when to go for these tests in order to get the most accurate information as it pertains to their cycle.
Whether you are evaluating for fertility, period problems or wondering if you are peri menopausal, testing at the RIGHT time in your cycle is critical to creating a treatment plan for your concerns. Check out my latest video to understand WHEN you should have your bloodwork done and WHY.
