What is thyroid support?

Lux Health offers tailored thyroid support from a family nurse practitioner who has also experienced the side effects of Hashimoto’s and hypothyroid disease. Properly managing thyroid hormone is the best way to maintain an ideal weight, high energy levels, and a low risk of complications. See Elizabeth at the first sign of a thyroid disorder.

Who needs thyroid support?

Your thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck. It produces thyroid hormone that helps manage metabolism and control numerous other body functions. Different forms of thyroid disorders include:

  • Hypothyroidism - low thyroid hormone
  • Hyperthyroidism - high levels of thyroid hormone
  • Thyroiditis - inflamed thyroid gland 
  • Thyroid nodules - lumps on the thyroid gland
  • Goiter - enlarged thyroid gland
  • Thyroid cancer - cancer of the thyroid gland
  • Postpartum thyroiditis - thyroid inflammation in women after childbirth

If your thyroid gland doesn’t function properly, you’re at risk of troublesome symptoms and complications without treatment.

What are the symptoms of thyroid conditions?

The hallmark symptoms of thyroid diseases include:

  • Extreme fatigue or excessive energy
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Hair loss or other changes in hair
  • Feeling cold often or sweating a lot
  • Sleeping too much or difficulty sleeping
  • Problems concentrating
  • Mood changes
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression

You may also develop an enlarged thyroid gland. Check your gland regularly by feeling it, especially if you’re at risk of thyroid disease.

Common risk factors include a family history of thyroid problems, taking certain medications, some medical conditions, consuming too much or too little iodine, being older than 60, and undergoing previous thyroid treatments. 

Is thyroid support right for me?

After completing an initial online evaluation, schedule a virtual telehealth meeting with Elizabeth and undergo at-home diagnostic blood tests to evaluate your thyroid hormone and other hormones. 

After she receives the results, Elizabeth reviews them with you and asks about your medical history, lifestyle habits, current medication and supplement regimen, and more before tailoring a customized treatment plan.

  • Nutrition and exercise education

  • Dietary supplements
  • Prescription medications
