I Went On Thyroid Hormone

A Cautionary Tale of Thyroid Overdiagnosis and Overtreatment

Patients often come to our clinic wondering why they’re still experiencing symptoms despite taking thyroid medication. Come to find out, their labs and symptoms don’t correlate with a thyroid diagnosis. Instead, they find relief by discontinuing thyroid medication and improving their gut health. I’ve been down a similar path before—following a lab result, taking a thyroid hormone, and feeling worse, to then discovering a thyroid misdiagnosis. Listen in as I share my experience and how important it is to interpret thyroid test results correctly.
