If you experience health issues associated with your thyroid, it’s imperative you speak with an endocrinologist and thyroid specialist directly. Our team at Freeman Endocrinology has great experience in this area of the medical field and in this latest post, we’re highlighting the symptoms associated with untreated hypothyroidism. This is as condition in which the thyroid does not produce enough of certain hormones.
If you’re receiving treatment for thyroid problems, your diet really does matter! Some of the foods you eat, and some supplements you take, can potentially make your thyroid problems worse – possibly much worse. That makes it extremely important to eat wisely.
These are some of the foods and supplements you should be aware of that can have an impact on thyroid disease.
Does your endocrine and diabetes care center have a specialist in lipid disorders? If you’ve been diagnosed with hyperlipidemia, it’s important that they do. There’s a strong link between thyroid problems and the diagnosis of hyperlipidemia, but often doctors don’t think to look into this.
Here’s what you need to know.
One thing we find when people are referred to our clinic is that many people don’t even know what an endocrinologist does! It’s not a medical specialty that’s talked about in the media much, and we don’t get TV shows made about us. So, it’s understandable that, sometimes, a person might show up at our clinic without even really knowing why they’re here.
