Thyroid

ow thyroid levels cause decreased body temperature, increased cholesterol, and body fat. It can contribute to sluggishness and low energy, as well as depression. As we age, thyroid levels sometimes decrease, causing our body temperature and metabolism to dip below normal. Without thyroid hormone, we cannot survive.
We rely on our thyroid hormone to regulate our body’s metabolism, body temperature, and energy production. The thyroid gland will release fewer hormones with aging and can also be affected by disease (Thyroiditis).

THYROID DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS may include but are not limited to:

* Hair Thinning
* Weights gain
* Constipation
* Dry Skin
* Fatigu

* Low body temperature
* Water Retention
* Insomnia
* Cracking Nails
* Cold intolerance

If an individual is suffering from more than one of the above symptoms it is important to have a screening test done, called thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) done in addition to measuring the actual blood levels of the two main thyroid hormones (T4 and T3) in order to get a more complete picture of your thyroid’s health. In addition to this, there are a variety of other tests that Dr. Stallone utilizes in order to determine whether an individual’s thyroid is functioning at its optimal level.
Too often, an individual is misdiagnosed with depression due to his or her symptoms mimicking that of a deficient (hypothyroid) thyroid.
