Thyroid Symptoms

Excerpt from Dr. Lanzisera's Thyroid Report, "THYROID DISORDERS EXPLAINED, Why Do I Still have Symptoms?"

First, let’s learn more about how the thyroid works...

In healthy people, the thyroid makes just the right amounts of two hormones, T3 and T4. These hormones have important actions throughout the body. Most importantly, they regulate many aspects of our metabolism, affecting how many calories we burn, how warm we feel, how much we weigh…and our general well-being. 

Thyroid  Hormones are in Charge of our Metabolism

Thyroid hormones also have direct effects on most organs, including the heart which beats faster and harder under the influence of increased thyroid hormones (this is why heart problems can often accompany chronic thyroid problems in women, and perhaps why heart problems are more common in women under the age of 50). 

T3 is the more biologically active hormone (it’s more important for cellular function), and in fact most of T4 (80%) is converted to T3 in the body’s peripheral tissues. So T4 is just a precursor for the more active hormone, T3.

One of the problems in some thyroid disorders is that you may have trouble converting T4 to T3 in your tissues (have you been checked for this?). This can create a deficiency of T3, disrupting the body’s ability to properly regulate metabolism…leading to specific symptoms.

The symptoms of thyroid disorders, including hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's, vary from extreme fatigue to dry, thinning hair. Thyroid disorders can affect the way we look, the way we feel, and even the way we think.
Some of the more common symptoms are fatigue, cold hands and feet, requiring excessive sleep, gaining weight easily, neck and back pain, constipation, depression,headaches, thinning hair, dry skin, heavy or irregular menstrual periods.
There are other symptoms that are less often associated with a thyroid problem as in a hoarse or raspy voice, yellow tinge to the skin, slower thinking, slower movement or speech, slow heart rate, and infertilityChildren can also be affected by a low functioning thyroid gland.

THE "SKINNY" ON WHY IT'S SO HARD TO LOSE EXCESS WEIGHT WHEN YOU HAVE A THYROID PROBLEM
One of the more common symptoms of thyroid disorders is the patient's inability to lose weight. Typically, this is the first clue that something is wrong. Often, the patient is told that the weight will come off once thyroid replacement medication is started. Unfortunately, this doesn't always occur and the weight gains can continue despite "normal" TSH levels. It may seem to the patient that it doesn't matter how little they eat or how much they exercise, the weight gain won't go away.

Changes in Brain Chemistry and Intestinal Hyper-permeability
Hunger is intricately tied to your brain chemistry. Your hypothalamus senses you need energy and issues the brain neurotransmitter, neuropeptide Y (NPY), with the message "eat carbohydrates." The surge of NPY is what you experience as "hunger," Once the hypothalamus senses you've eaten enough carbohydrates, it releases serotonin to tell the body "enough carbohydrates." 
But this system can be dramatically altered by several factors, all of which can be present in chronic thyroid disease:
•Your metabolism is too slow for the appetite level set by your brain. Thyroid disease slows down the metabolism. What your brain perceives as appropriate food intake levels can then exceed your body's metabolism, creating weight gain. 
•Your body is under stress, which interferes with the neurotransmitter functions, and is known to reduce the release of serotonin. 
. 95% of your serotonin is not produced in your brain but in your gut. Hyperpermeability of the intestinal lining can be caused by food sensitivities, especially wheat gluten. Damage to the intestinal lining can lower serotonin production.

Summary: You can't diet your way out of this problem. The gut and brain issues need to be resolved first. Food sensitivity testing, nutritional counseling, brain based therapy, cortisol testing, and specific dietary modifications are ways to effectively treat this problem.

NATURAL TREATMENTS for THYROID DISORDERS

Excerpt from Dr. Lanzisera's THYROID REPORT "Thyroid Disorders Explained, Why Do I Still Have Symptoms?":

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is a condition in which the body’s immune system attacks the thyroid gland (this is an auto-immune disorder). It is diagnosed by checking for thyroid antibodies (TPO & TGB). Hashimoto’s is not a thyroid disease but an immune system disorder and the most common autoimmune disorder. As Dr. Datis Kharrazian DC, MS states in his book, "Why Do I Still Have My Thyroid Symptoms When My Lab Tests Are Normal?", when addressing an autoimmune disorder like
 Hashimoto’s, the goal is to restore balance to the immune system. The foundation of care is to support a patient’s overall health. Unstable blood sugar, gut dysbiosis (abnormal gut bacteria), and poor adrenal health worsen an autoimmune condition. Removing gluten from the diet is also vital given the  studied links between Hashimoto’s and gluten intolerance.  


Taken together autoimmune diseases strike women three times more than men. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis effects 10 women for every man.  

"I customize each patient’s treatment plan with a combination of brain based therapy (BBT) to improve functional brain imbalances, and nutritional supplementation and dietary modification to aid metabolic dysfunction that is found through lab testing.

I look forward to helping improve and change your life!"

Dr. Frank Lanzisera, D.PSc., D.C.

​ New Hypothyroidism & Hashimoto's Thyroiditis Symptoms 

Some symptoms of hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's thyroiditis can be overlooked. Weight gain and fatigue usually take center stage while symptoms of brain fog are considered secondary. What is brain fog? - This is when you experience memory loss, can't think clearly, have trouble thinking of the right words to say, and find it hard to concentrate.
Excerpt from Drs. Frank and Lisa Lanzisera's newest book "What's Wrong With My Thyroid? :
Patients usually say their brain fog is one of the most annoying symptoms they have to deal with on a daily basis. It can be embarrassing in their professional world and disturbing if family and friends treat them as if they are “losing it”. The good news is that brain fog is usually one of the first symptoms to improve once treatment begins. 
Spouses of our patients typically notice the difference first. It’s a wonderfully rewarding experience when a husband or wife thanks you for giving their spouse back to them. The truth is that all treatment is a team effort. The family has to be on board for any help to be effective. Too often we have seen the spouse not wanting to participate in the mate’s recovery. This puts such a burden on the one trying to get well. It’s difficult enough to begin treatment when you are still feeling sick. This initial effort is made so much easier with the help and support of the family.

Hypoglycemia
Hypothyroidism can cause a problem with glucose metabolism. Glucose (sugar) metabolism is the rate at which the body converts glucose for energy.

The brain uses glucose. It cannot function well if glucose metabolism is impaired and can lead to symptoms of brain fog: fatigue, irritability, and light-headedness.

People with low thyroid function have a problem with glucose being absorbed into their cells. Their cells also don’t use it as readily. On top of all this – once glucose does finally get absorbed, the cells have a difficult time eliminating it.

Hypoglycemia is associated with all six patterns of hypothyroidism. Most frequently, a low-functioning pituitary gland is involved as well as the adrenal and thyroid glands. The pituitary or “master” gland as previously described is the traffic cop for the body’s hormonal flow. Blood sugar fluctuations have a debilitating effect on the adrenal gland hormone output which disrupts the pituitary’s functions. The pituitary is the mid-level boss of the thyroid gland, so when the pituitary is not functioning well the thyroid gland suffers too.

Hypoglycemic symptoms can develop not because there isn’t enough glucose in the blood but because the glucose can’t be absorbed adequately by the cells.

The symptoms of hypoglycemia are:
· Confusion
· Blurry/impaired vision
· Poor short-term memory
· Agitated easily
· Craving for sweets and salty snacks
· Irritability especially when meals are missed
· Dependence on coffee/stimulants
· Lightheadedness
· Needing to eat to relieve fatigue
· Shakiness
· Dizziness
· Sweating, chills and clamminess
· Hunger and nausea
· Seizures
· Sleepiness
· Rapid/fast heartbeat
· Tingling or numbness in the lips or tongue
· Unconsciousness
If you or someone you care about are exhibiting symptoms of brain fog, hypothyroidism and hypoglycemia may be responsible. Learn more at www.thyroidtampa.com and we will send you Dr. Frank Lanzisera's New Thyroid Report.

THYROID SYMPTOMS IN MEN CAN MIMIC THOSE OF LOW T

Thyroid symptoms in males can be very similar to those attributed to "Low T" or low testosterone. A man with thyroid disease can experience fatigue, loss of libido, hair loss, sweating,and depression. All of these commonly found symptoms are also expressed as a result of a depressed testosterone level.  
Lab testing is imperative to accurately diagnose the cause of these symptoms. Too often, because thyroid conditions are more strongly identified with females, thyroid problems in men are overlooked. 
Clinically, we are seeing more men with thyroid conditions than ever before. Plus, we are seeing the onset of symptoms occurring earlier. It is not unusual for a man in his early twenties to report having symptoms related to a thyroid condition that began in his teens.

What To Do If You Have Thyroid-Related Symptoms but Your Blood Tests are Normal

Often patients, both males and females, are told that since their blood tests fall in the normal range they don't have a thyroid problem. Yet, their thyroid related symptoms persist and grow worse. Usually a TSH test is ordered with or without T3 and T4. If a thyroid disorder is suspected then lab tests need to be performed that can fully evaluate why the patient is experiencing these symptoms. Not only do we order the appropriate tests, we also consider their functional ranges, not just whether the lab values fall into the normal or abnormal range. 

It is not unusual for a patient on synthetic hormone replacement, such as Synthroid (levothyroxine sodium) or Armour, to continue experiencing symptoms. They can't lose weight no matter how much they exercise or how little they eat. I's very difficult to stay motivated when you are just so tired. This problem can call for a different approach even while remaining on your prescribed medication.

The first thing to do is to be evaluated and have the blood work done that can show the real story of what's going on with your thyroid gland. TSH, Free T3, Reverse T3, TGB, TPO are a few of the lab tests we order for our patients. We explain more about lab tests and how we approach this problem in the Thyroid Report. Order yours by completing the form above. We respect your email privacy.
