Providing Thyroid Health Optimization
Thyroid health is a debated area in medicine. 14 million people suffer from Hypothyroidism in the United States alone, women being much more likely to be affected. The disease affects one in five women and one in ten men. The majority of time, thyroid disease is undiagnosed, therefore is left untreated. The thyroid is one of the master glands of the body and it dictates our metabolic health. When it is not functioning properly, it affects our whole well being.
The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the body’s metabolic rate controlling heart, muscle and digestive function, brain development and bone maintenance. Commonly causing hypothyroidism is an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. This condition causes the body to attack its own thyroid gland and results in a slow deterioration of the gland. Other causes of hypothyroidism include nutrient iodine deficiency or other deficiencies that the thyroid uses to function at its best. Thyroid Doctor Rashel Tahzib serving Newport Beach knows that the thyroid is a huge factor in living a healthy life and wants to help you do just that.
