Understanding thyroid basics from a functional perspective
Are you confused by the myriad of thyroid tests? Do you know what tests you should be requesting for what conditions or symptoms, and what the results mean? Understanding thyroid basics gives you a good grasp on the basics of thyroid tests and treatment options.
And then what do you do with those results?
Understanding Thyroid Basics from a Functional Perspective will demystify the range of thyroid tests – what to order, what to ask the doctor to order and what to order yourself, what is covered by Medicare and what is not. Why would you order a reverse T3 test, and what do the results mean? What do you do to fix it? When do you need to send the patient back to their doctor, and when can you treat? What sort of nutrients are needed for the thyroid and for all of the different thyroid hormones?
This workshop will give you a BASIC understanding of thyroid function, thyroid symptoms, and the range of thyroid tests – and what nutrients are needed for optimal thyroid functioning and correcting the imbalances you will see in the test results. It will not be covering in-depth dosing of nutrients for specific conditions.
***PLEASE NOTE – HYPERACTIVE THYROID***
During this webinar, a question is asked about treatment for hyperactive thyroid. Please note that in clinic you may see subclinical overactive thyroid, which has the potential to be managed with diet etc. It is important to note that a true hyperactive thyroid is a medical emergency and the patient will only be treated in the hospital emergency department as it is a life-threatening condition and is outside the scope of practice of natural medicine practitioners.
