“The thyroid’s job is to secrete several hormones, collectively called thyroid hormones. These hormones influence metabolism, growth, and development, and body temperature.”

On Dr. Robyn’s next YOUNGER podcast episode called, “Could It Be Your Thyroid?” she explains how thyroid issues can be easily under diagnosed. Learn which thyroid lab tests are best to ask your practitioner to take for you. This episode offers many ways to support a healthy functioning thyroid.

“The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped glad that sits low on the front of the neck, along the front windpipe.  The thyroid has two side lobes, connected by a bridge in the middle —picture the shape of a butterfly.”

Our team understands the challenges many doctors have when it comes to isolating thyroid disease. The main reason has been because the symptoms are so similar to many other health problems.  Many MD’s simply find they don’t have the time to discuss symptoms with patients and / or sort out the cause of the complaint(s).

If you’re trying to talk to your health practitioner about your thyroid worries, and they are not taking you seriously, seek a second opinion.  Be your own advocate and speak up!
