Thyroid information

Good morning, and my apologies for my lack of posts since Tuesday. Life occasionally gets in the way, and there have not been an awful lot of good articles out there to share with you. I did find a few, however, and I will be sharing them with my blog readers over the next few days.

I know I have already mentioned that my own physician in Southern CA, Dr. Carr, now has a Facebook page. He's had some great posts on it, and I am so pleased to see that yesterday he addressed the issue of thyroid disease. The post is very informative, click here to read it. Way too many, in fact most doctors do not fully address both the T4 and T3 thyroid levels, instead only looking at the TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) lab results. Oftentimes, the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction are obvious, but the only thing considered is lab results. Thanks so much, Dr. Carr!

  1. A poor functioning thyroid will not convert calories into energy, and store them as fat in your whole body. Natural bovine thyroid supplements help the thyroid gland to function properly.
