Thyroid Specialist

Thyroid Specialist in Denver

Functional thyroid specialists at The Healing Center Denver have become leading adjunctive practitioners in low thyroid and other disorders of this endocrine gland. Many patients have come to us after being misdiagnosed, under diagnosed, or had issues continue while in the care of a primary physician.

We work primarily with women suffering from symptoms of fluctuating hormones, and also individuals who were told their thyroid was normal, while still suffering from the symptoms.



What Are Some Common Symptoms?

Some common signs of thyroid disorders include

  • An inability to lose weight, even with diet and exercise
  • Needing an excessive amount of sleep to function
  • Being fatigued and tired most of the time
  • Having memory issues or a “foggy brain”
  • Hot flashes or feeling cold all the time
  • Depression or lacking motivation
  • Constipation or bowel problems
  • Hair loss or thinning of the hair
  • Decreased libido

The Value of Holistic Care

Most medical professionals only look at TSH levels to diagnose and care for low thyroid. This ignores the fact that there are six patterns of hypothyroidism, which may cause problems and not affect your TSH levels. Only using TSH for diagnosis risks missing something vital.

Also, the Endocrine Society changed the TSH normal lab levels to 1.8 to 3.0, and most labs have yet to catch up. That’s why your lab work may come back as normal, although you’re still experiencing symptoms. Our providers take a unique approach to care, using neurological and functional medicine to get to the root cause of the issue.
