Thyroid Health: Issues & Treatments

1 in 8 women will develop a thyroid condition at some point in their lives; women are 5-8x more likely than men to develop a thyroid condition. Even more surprising is that 60% of the people with a thyroid condition don’t know they have it.

In this video, Dr. Mary interviews Dr. Sarah Williams about thyroid health. They discuss:

  • What is our thyroid, and what does it do? Where is it located?

  • Symptoms of low thyroid function, or hypothyroidism

  • Symptoms of high thyroid function, or hyperthyroidism

  • Nutrients needed for thyroid hormone production: selenium, zinc, iodine, vitamin A

  • Labs to ask your doctor to run if you suspect thyroid issues

  • Treatment options for hypo- and hyperthyroidism

  • How thyroid issues can cause SIBO or constipation and bloating

  • How our adrenals and stress levels are related to our thyroid health
