Do you often feel fatigued, depressed, indifferent? Have trouble focusing, poor memory? How about aching joints, cold hands and feet, dry skin and hair, thinning hair (especially the outer 1/3 of your eyebrows), puffy eyes and face? These are among many symptoms typical of Hypothyroidism.
It may even have occurred to you that you have Low Thyroid but a doctor has told you that your lab tests are normal. But did your doctor include the tests that could have settled the question unequivocally? Very often physicians may have requested an oft recommended screening test for thyroid disease that produced a "normal" result despite symptoms you know to be real.
Read on to see why your Naturopath would have felt your symptoms convincing enough to suggest the presence of thyroid pathology. She would then have ordered more refined tests that provide a quantitative finding that reveals whether your serum levels of thyroid hormone are optimal, and not simply "normal" or "abnormal". It's good to listen when your body speaks.
