May 25th is World Thyroid Day. Thyroid function is central to so many different systems and functions in the body from metabolism, to mood, to inflammation and hormone balance, to immune system function.
Here are some interesting facts that you may not know about thyroid function:
- Some of the physical signs of low thyroid function (hypothyroidism) are: Puffy physical appearance with swollen face and bags under the eyes, overweight, dry, rough, brittle hair and nails, thinning of the outside third of the eyebrows, and diffuse hair loss.
- Proper thyroid hormone replacement therapy can be one of the best antidepressants available, bringing energy and an improved mood.
- Thyroid hormones support detoxification within and in between the over 30 trillion cells in your body.
- Avoid high protein meals at night if you have low thyroid function as it slows down the conversion of T4 to the active T3 hormone.
When properly balanced and supported, your thyroid gland can help you live a healthier and happier life. I recommend getting properly tested and treated by a doctor who is skilled in looking beyond the standard blood tests and prescription of T4 and can offer you a broader look at what is happening and how to best treat it.

Women’s International Pharmacy published an excellent article on the importance of understanding how hormones work with receptor sites and the signifiant impact this has on hormone treatments in women and in men. I often find myself discussing with my patients at Forever Ageless that it is not enough to look at blood test results and the amount and even the form of hormones being administered. We must look at factors such as symptom resolution, inflammation, medical history and more to help assess how beneficial a bio-identical hormone protocol is for you. This makes a lot of sense when you understand the role of hormone receptors and how they impact the results of being treated with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Bio-identical hormones can change lives for the better, when introduced safely and with great care and focus on treating you as an individual, with a unique set of receptors and cells that operate best when in a balanced state.
To your health,
