 10 reasons why you need to attend this very informative presentation

Today I will be discussing reasons 7 & 8 since they are closely linked. 

Reason 7: Even though you’ve been told your lab tests are normal, you still may have a thyroid condition.

The most common lab tests performed to evaluate your Thyroid are Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and T4. However this is an incomplete picture of true thyroid health. Even though these two commonly used markers (TSH & T4) are often said to be normal other Thyroid test that are usually not performed can prove to show you have a thyroid disorder, but because these other test are not widely used you may suffer for years before being diagnosed. This may explain why even though your lab test are normal you still suffer from symptoms of a Thyroid condition

Reason 8: Learn which lab tests are usually not performed, but should be, especially with Hypothyroidism.

As discussed in the previous email the most commonly performed lab test are TSH & T4, which do not give a complete picture of your thyroid. The #1 cause of Hypothyroidism in the US is Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroid. 90% of all Hypothyroid is caused by this disease. The only way to find out if this is causing your Thyroid issues is by specific lab work, in particular by checking to see if you have anti-bodies against your own Thyroid tissue. Unfortunately most practitioners don’t run these labs. So you can take all the prescribed medication for low Thyroid hormone you want, however if you have thyroid tissue destruction from anti-bodies against your own Thyroid, your Thyroid will never get better and you will continue to suffer from Thyroid symptoms. You will continue to suffer from difficulty losing weight, low energy and not feeling your best even with “diet” and exercise. Find out if you have anti-bodies that are destroying your thyroid.

10 reasons why you need to attend this very informative presentation 

Reason 3: You or someone you know may have a Thyroid disease and don’t know about it.

Thyroid symptoms can be very dramatic, but many times they are subtle. For example if you’ve experienced or are experiencing any of the following you may have an unsuspected thyroid disease…

      • Difficulty losing weight
      • Difficulty gaining weight
      • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
      • Fatigue
      • Always cold or hot
      • Hair loss with combing or showering

This is just a short list of the many signs and symptoms that are caused by Thyroid disease. Eventually, because the thyroid communicates with all other cells and tissues in your body, you or someone you know can develop complications and other illnesses.

Thyroid Health Rage 

10 reasons why you need to attend this very informative presentation 

 

Reason 2: Your Thyroid may be the reason you are always tired and have no energy.

 

Again your Thyroid is responsible for your metabolism. It controls your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), which is the most basic and fundamental aspect of how your body functions. Loss of Thyroid function will lead to a decline in your BMR. This decline will lead to a gradual loss of energy, mental function, gastrointestinal motility (constipation) and mood all which lead to fatigue. Being constantly tiered will lead to weight gain and cause more health problems. You can see the vicious cycle developing. Getting your Thyroid function back will lead to better health, weight loss and MORE ENERGY! Break this vicious cycle!

Thyroid Health2

 

10 reasons why you need to attend this very informative presentation

 

Reason 1: Your Thyroid may be the reason you can’t lose weight.

Your Thyroid is responsible for your metabolism. It controls your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), which is the most basic and fundamental aspect of how your body functions (physiology). Lack of ideal Thyroid function will lead to a decline in the cellular function of all body systems. This decline will lead to slower metabolism, which will lead to weight gain and cause difficulty in losing weight. Getting your Thyroid function back will in turn lead to better health and WEIGHT LOSS!

The Fat Hormone: How Effective are You at Burning Belly Fat?

Leptin, a recently discovered hormone, regulates body weight by suppressing food intake and/or increasing energy expenditure.

Leptin is a very powerful and influential hormone produced by fat cells.

Science has discovered that leptin is the most powerful metabolic regulator that tells your brain whether you should be hungry, eat and make more fat.

Basically, leptin is the way that your fat stores speak to your brain to let your brain know how much energy is available and, very importantly, what to do with it.

In a perfect world, as you gain weight, you secrete more leptin from your fat cells. This in turn tells your brain you have enough stored fat so it reduces your appetite sending messages to help you burn fat.

But there is a problem!

Unfortunately many people have something called “leptin resistance”. This means that no matter how much leptin you create from your fat cells, the brain doesn’t see it.  This leads to a cascade of your brain thinking you are starving ======> you burn less calories ====>your appetite goes into overdrive and finally every bit of food you eat gets stored on your belly!

Until you address leptin resistance, you’re not going to lose weight!

Optimal Leptin Levels

Your goal is to keep your leptins below 12, however, not too low. Researchers have discovered that leptins too far to the low side has been associated with dementia or Alzheimer’s.

A leptin above 12 is not considered healthy.

Leptin levels can now be measured with a simple blood test. Levels above 12 are linked to weight gain, accelerated aging, increased risk of infertility, diabetes and heart attack.  In addition, high leptin levels are associated with belly fat and numerous cancers

Leptin rises if you don’t sleep well, and if you have any kind of perceived stress.

Thyroid Connection

If you are having difficulty losing weight, I recommend you get your leptin checked. Remember you want it under 12.  From a thyroid perspective, if your leptin is above 12 you will commonly see low T3 (the most metabolically active thyroid hormone) and elevated reverse T3. This is not good for those trying to lose weight. The thyroid medication Synthroid (Levothyroxine) is aT4 medication and should be used with some level of caution when high leptin levels are seen. The take away from this thyroid connection is the fact that reverse T3 means T4 is not being effectively converted into the metabolic workhorse hormone, T3.

The Solution:

You become leptin resistant by eating the typical American diet full of sugar, refined grains, and processed foods. The solution is to eat a diet that emphasizes good fats and avoids blood sugar spikes. Basically a diet that emphasize healthy fats, lean meats and vegetables, and restricts sugar and grains.

For a full thyroid/leptin work-up, I recommend a comprehensive blood analysis that includes both a full, NOT partial, Thyroid panel & the Leptin marker.
