Thyroid hormones heavily influence your metabolism, your body temperature, and your appetite regulation.
Your thyroid works closely with your hypothalamus, a small area of your brain, to maintain both your weight and your energy balance.
The goal is thyroid optimization! Your lab work can show a “normal” thyroid level. However, that thyroid level may be on the high end of normal. The goal is to optimize that thyroid and make it function in its best possible way. In doing this, alone or in conjunction with other therapies, patients have lost a considerable amount of weight. This is just another method that we can look into in your weight loss journey.
