Levothyroxine Side Effects - Complete List + Dosing Guide for Patients
 
21:10
In this video, I go over the complete list of Levothyroxine side effects ranging from weight gain to hair loss and everything in between. Yes, Levothyroxine can cause hair loss and it can also cause weight GAIN. How can that be if levothyroxine is supposed to boost your metabolism? In this video I explain how the metabolism of thyroid hormone in your body from T4 to reverse T3 may help explain why many people actually gain weight on this particular medication. I also go over the recommendations I give to patients if this happens to them. I also go over how to determine which thyroid medication is right for YOUR Body and how to dose your levothyroxine. When patients have reactions to levothyroxine it's from 1 of 3 reasons typically: 1) they are reacting to a filler ingredient or a dye within the medication itself. 2) they are converting or metabolizing the thyroid hormone into by products that don't promote proper activity 3) they are getting too much thyroid hormone for THEIR body (this one is less common) The side effects when patients react to fillers or dyes include reactions like facial swelling, edema, hives, itching sensation, etc. The side effects from improper metabolism include reactions like weight gain, hair loss, slower than normal metabolism, cold hands/extremities, etc. The side effects from TOO much medication include hot flashes, tachycardia or rapid heart rate, palpitations, hair loss, intolerance to heat. The treatment for each of these reactions is quite different and I explain what to do depending on how you are reacting. Leave your questions below!

10 Important Tips for Taking Synthroid: Dosing, Side Effects, T3 Medications & More
 
18:27
Today is all about Synthroid. If you take this medication then you'll want to learn more about these 10 tips and tricks that you can use to help feel better. Synthroid is one of the most common thyroid medications used to treat hypothyroidism but it's not without problems. These tips are designed to help you find your optimal dose, help you understand if you are absorbing Synthroid, help you figure out if you need a new medication and more. 10 Tips to know when taking Synthroid: #1. Peripheral T4 to T3 conversion First off, you need to understand that Synthroid contains the inactive thyroid hormone T4. This means that in order for thyroid hormone to be utilized in your body it must first be activated through peripheral thyroid conversion. Several factors including genetics, inflammation, nutrient deficiencies and so on can impact this process. There are situations in which you may be taking enough Synthroid but your body is not able to activate it. #2. Absorption of Synthroid In order for your body to use Synthroid, it must also be absorbed in your intestinal tract! Several medications, supplements, and even foods can impact how much you absorb. Do your best to take Synthroid away from supplements such as Calcium and Iron which can limit absorption. #3. Are supplements helping or hurting you? Some supplements can decrease absorption but there are others that can help. The use of Selenium and Zinc can help your body activate Synthroid after it is absorbed. #4. The time of day that you take Synthroid Synthroid can be safely taken in the morning but it can also be taken at night. Studies have shown that patients who take it in the evening actually have higher free T4 and free T3! #5. Levothyroxine vs Synthroid: Are they the same? Levothyroxine and Synthroid both contain the same active ingredient but they are not considered bio-equivalents. Some patients do better on Synthroid over Levothyroxine so switching which one you take can impact how you feel. #6. Tirosint Tirosint is another T4 only medication but it is unique because it has the fewest inactive ingredients. Tirosint is more expensive than Synthroid but it can be used in cases where you may be reacting to fillers or dyes in Synthroid. #7. Dosage In order for Synthroid to work properly, you must be getting an adequate dose. You can ensure that you get a high enough dose by following all of the thyroid lab tests (more info below). #8. Switching to NDT or T3 medication Your thyroid naturally produces both T4 and T3 but Synthroid only has T4. In some cases, you may need to switch medications or add T3 in order to feel better. #9. The full thyroid lab panel While monitoring your dose you need to be looking at more than just the TSH. If you take Synthroid you should be looking at the following tests: - TSH - Free T3 - Total T3 - Free T4 - Reverse T3 These tests will give you an idea as to how your body is utilizing Synthroid. #10. Synthroid side effects Lastly, make sure that you watch our for the side effects of Synthroid which include: - Weight gain - Hair loss - Heart palpitations - Rashes - Headaches - Insomnia - Hot flashes - Changes in menstrual cycle Any of these side effects may indicate you need to switch medications! Hey guys! I'm Dr. Westin Childs and I focus on thyroid health, hormone balance, and weight loss. I write about thyroid disorders, weight loss, insulin resistance, estrogen/progesterone balance on my blog. I truly believe that hormone balance is the key to managing your weight, your mood and your quality of life which is why I'm so passionate about it. I take a personalized/functional medicine approach to management of conditions. I'm not accepting patients but you can learn more and get plenty of information on my blog!

Does Levothyroxine Cause Weight Gain? What to do if it is slowing down your metabolism
 
22:11
Does Levothyroxine cause weight gain? That is the question I am going to answer in this video today. Here is a common problem: patients with hypothyroidism present to their doctor, get put on T4 medication like Levothyroxine or Synthroid and they CONTINUE to gain weight - despite no change in their diet or exercise routine. How can this be? In this video, I answer what I think is going on in many patients and it has to do with T4 to reverse T3 conversion when certain patients are given medications that contain T4 only. In the setting of inflammation, trauma, infections, liver/kidney issues, low-calorie diets, and nutrient deficiencies the body can take T4 and convert it into the thyroid blocking metabolite reverse T3. High levels of reverse T3 then compete for binding at the T3 cellular receptor site and put the brakes on thyroid and metabolic function. So how do you treat this condition? Most patients will need medication containing T3 like natural desiccated thyroid or liothyronine/Cytomel to "flush" the system. I also give several tips that I use in my office to help boost thyroid function if your doctor isn't willing to give you medication with T3 in it: 1. Optimize T4 to T3 conversion - I recommend the combination of zinc plus selenium. 2. Fix your adrenals - Consider using adrenal adaptogens or adrenal glandulars both of which can enhance cortisol and improve your stress response. 3. Add high-intensity exercise - To help lower insulin and leptin levels. 4. Reduce inflammation and find hidden sources of inflammation - the easiest first place to look is at your diet. 5. Lower leptin and insulin levels - It will be impossible to lose weight with leptin resistance and/or insulin resistance and both conditions reduce T4 to T3 conversion.

Reverse T3 Treatment Guide + How to “Flush” it out of Your Body
 
25:12
High reverse T3 levels result in a slow metabolism, weight gain, low body temperature and symptoms of hypothyroidism. Reverse T3 is created from T4 in your body in the presence of inflammation, leptin resistance, insulin resistance and a history of chronic yo-yo dieting. Taking T4 only medication can actually make high levels of reverse T3 even worse. This guide discusses how patients get high levels of reverse T3, what causes reverse T3 to be elevated and how to flush high levels of reverse T3 out of your body. We will also discuss the normal ranges of reverse T3 in your body and how to evaluate them in the presence of low T3 levels. There are ways to treat thyroid resistance but in some cases it requires the use of T3 containing medications. More information in the video and the full blog post can be found here: https://www.restartmed.com/reverse-t3/ You can read more on my website here: https://www.restartmed.com/ This video is not intended to be used as medical advice.

Eat 1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil a Day and THIS Will Happen to Your Thyroid
 
03:19
Coconut oil has many health benefits that are well-documented. However, one recently discovered benefit is that coconut oil can help treat symptoms of hypothyroidism, or an under-active thyroid. Hypothyroidism occurs when the body’s thyroid gland does not make enough hormones to allow the body to function appropriately. Coconut oil contains a fatty acid called lauric acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties. Coconut oil also contains capric acid, which has antimicrobial and antiviral properties. It is recommended that you use extra virgin coconut oil for the best health benefits. One tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil should be consumed daily. It can be added to hot beverages, such as tea or coffee, and added to daily cooking, drizzled over a salad or added to a smoothie. Today’s video will discuss health issues that coconut oil can help treat. 1. Metabolism When the body’s thyroid is under-active, it can cause the body to feel fatigued and without energy. The fatty acids in coconut oil help the fats in the body convert to energy. This, in turn, boosts the body’s metabolic rate. 2. Weight Loss One of the most major symptoms of an under-active thyroid is unexplained weight gain. The weight is very hard to lose and the thyroid hormones directly slow down the body’s metabolism. The Journal of Nutrition published a study that showed the fatty acids in coconut oil help to keep the body feeling fuller, longer. Thus, assisting the body in shedding excess weight. 3. Constipation When hormones from the thyroid are low, the body’s organs run slower as well, causing the digestive tract and intestines to lag. The fatty acids in coconut oil provide the body with energy and boost organ function. Coconut oil also works as a natural laxative and is effective in fighting constipation. 4. Inflammation An under-active thyroid causes muscle and joint pain, largely from unbalanced hormone levels. Coconut oil can naturally calm any inflammation and relieve any pain. 5. Hair Loss The thyroid can affect the health of your hair and may even cause it to begin to fall out. However, adding coconut oil to your regime will prevent this from occurring and repair hair follicles. 6. Dry Skin The imbalance of hormones caused by an under-active thyroid can cause the body’s skin to become dry and flaky. Coconut oil can be added directly to the affected skin to restore its moisture and healthy skin. Have you experienced an under-active thyroid? Have you tried any of these remedies? Let us know in our comment section.

What Happened When I Took a Raw Thyroid Supplement
 
06:21
In January, I discovered over-the-counter raw thyroid supplements and experimented with one particular one for a few weeks. At first, it seemed like a true godsend, but problems started surfacing later. Then I did a blood test and realised that things were actually getting worse. Only recently, with a better understanding of adrenal and cortisol issues, I finally understood why the raw thyroid supplement wasn't a good match for my body. This video isn't meant to scare you off from trying similar supplements. It's meant to encourage you to research and test yourself better before trying powerful supplements like this. If you're experiencing underactive adrenal glands and low cortisol in addition to low thyroid, a supplement like this could be amazing for you. But if you have high cortisol like me, be careful! I really hope this will help you out in your own thyroid healing journey. The raw thyroid supplement I talked about in the video: https://iherb.co/4QcByzHb A great over-the-counter alternative to NDT (natural dessicated thyroid): https://www.naturalthyroidsolutions.com/how-to-order.html An over-the-counter NDT from Thailand I'm currently taking: http://pimpomproducts.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=51 More information about all the types of NDT supplements: https://stopthethyroidmadness.com/options-for-thyroid-treatment/ My saliva cortisol test results: https://youtu.be/yi6FtTdCyjQ How I'm lowering my cortisol naturally: https://youtu.be/yi6FtTdCyjQ My Hashimoto's Healing Update playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsUaJG3Q74G6RBvi251tP0PDSMxq7qhP7 Thanks so much for watching!

Thyroid Conversion Chart - Armour thyroid vs Synthroid vs T3
 
14:43
In this video I explain how to convert from armour thyroid to levothyroxine or from levothyroxine to T3. It is based off of a thyroid conversion chart that I create which is more accurate than the traditional conversion chart used by most Doctors. If you can convince your Doctor to switch you from Levothyroxine or T4 to NDT then make sure you are getting the right dose. Many providers and patients make the mistake of lowering their total dose of thyroid hormone when doing this process and feel worse afterwards. By using the chart above you can get the proper dose of NDT, T4 or Armour thyroid when converting. Here are some basic guidelines: In these examples NDT = Armour thyroid, WP thyroid or Naturethroid 50mcg of T4 = 1 grain of NDT = 25 mcg of T3 100mcg of T4 = 2 grains of NDT = 50mcg of T3 150mcg of T4 = 3 grains of NDT = 75mcg of T3 200mcg of T4 = 4 grains of NDT = 100mcg of T3 In addition I also give some practical advice on how to switch from T4 only medications like Levothyroxine to Natural Desiccated thyroid medications like Armour thyroid. In general I recommend starting the titration slow and periodically increasing your total dose every 10-14 days to prevent negative side effects from the T3. I also go over some of the average dosages of patients on T4, NDT and T3 in my practice. These numbers vary based off of the individual but these ranges can help determine if your dose is high enough.

The Best Thyroid Test to Accurately Treat & Diagnose your Thyroid
 
24:56
Thyroid testing is very important to proper thyroid diagnosis and management. The conventional wisdom is to check only the TSH and maybe reflex to free T4. Instead of focusing on these tests I recommend each thyroid patient get a more complete profile prior to being treated with thyroid hormone. This panel includes: - TSH - Free T3 - Reverse T3 - Free T4 - Sex hormone binding globulin - Anti TPO and thyroid antibodies - Total T3 This combination of lab tests allow you to determine how well your body is utilizing, converting and absorbing thyroid hormone and can help your management directly. In this video I also go over many reasons why the TSH may not be accurate in certain circumstances and medical conditions.

What is a normal TSH?
 
11:29
This video is all about explaining what the TSH is and what it means for your body. Based on newer studies and a critical look at what the TSH is, healthy TSH ranges are probably close to 1.0 (or less). Traditionally the TSH is used as a marker to assess thyroid function in the entire body. The problem with this logic is that the pituitary is unlike the other tissues in your body in terms of how it processes and handles thyroid hormone. It has different deiodinases which breakdown thyroid hormone when compared to other tissues. The TSH, which stands for thyroid stimulating hormone, gives you a great idea as to how responsive your thyroid gland is to thyroid medication but it can't and shouldn't be used as the only way you look at thyroid function in the body. The TSH normally increases when thyroid hormone production is low and decreases when thyroid hormone levels are high. A high TSH is indicative of hypothyroidism while a low TSH is usually indicative of hyperthyroidism (though not always). The TSH is used by most physicians to assess the function of the entire thyroid system but this can lead to many issues in diagnosis. A healthy TSH is probably less than 1.0, even though the reference range usually encompasses 0.5 to 4.5 or 0.5 to 5.0. This large reference range can take into account people of all different ages and health status. If you look at a tighter range which is closer to 0.5 to 1.0 then you can do your best to compare your results to only those people who are healthy. It's possible to have a "normal" TSH but not a "healthy" TSH. In addition, you'll also want to be sure that you combine the TSH test with other lab tests including: - Free T3 - Free t4 - Reverse T3 - Sex hormone binding globulin By ordering these tests you will have more information about how your body is creating and processing thyroid hormone and they can be used in conjunction with the TSH. If you have a high TSH then you may need thyroid medication to help bring it down (medications such as levothyroxine, Synthroid, Tirosint, NDT, etc.). You may be able to naturally bring down your TSH by attempting to optimize the amount of thyroid hormone that your thyroid gland produces and by taking certain supplements.

T3 Therapy in Hypothyroidism - Risks and Advantages
 
02:16
How To Cure Hypothyroidism http://www.HypothyroidRevolution.org In alternative medicine, there is very little difference in curing hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. This is because the treatment involves assisting the thyroid to heal, in either case. Those with hyperthyroidism should not use iodine, because it could overdrive the thyroid, worsening the condition. Curing thyroid disease requires a long-term commitment for a period of at least a year. Creating this problem took years of self-poisoning, so fixing it is neither quick, nor easy. Hypothyroidism medications are addictive, and the body becomes reliant on them, which is why the mainstream establishment maintains that people must take them forever. Those who have been taking hypothyroidism medications for years must slowly wean themselves from the drugs. Abruptly stopping these medications will result in extreme fatigue, and additional thyroid problems. Treatment Recommendations Eliminate and discard all non-stick cookware Eliminate Soy - Soy suppresses thyroid function, imbalances hormones, and it has been shown to cause goiters (an enlargement of the thyroid gland) in previously healthy individuals, which shows that it disrupts iodine usage. Adhere to an Alkaline Diet - This is extremely helpful when curing any chronic disease. Reference the Body pH and Disease article to guide you. Balance Estrogen Levels (Women) - Excess estrogen slows down the thyroid gland. This means eliminating birth control medications, increasing the fiber in the diet, and avoiding all non-organic meats. Growth hormones in meats lead to imbalanced hormones. Reduce dairy intake, because milk often contains lots of estrogen; primarily because cows are milked frequently during pregnancy. Exercise - Find a physical activity that is fun, and do it often. We believe that exercise could half the cure time in some cases, and curing is not possible without it. Hemp Fiber - This is a broad spectrum supplement and a mild laxative. L-Tyrosine - Tyrosine is a natural amino acid which helps the body produce its own thyroid hormone. This is also known to help with the depression, which usually accompanies hypothyroidism. Most naturopaths recommend that 500 mg. be taken 2-3 times daily. L-Arginine - Arginine is known to stimulate the thyroid and its hormones. It also improves immune function, improves fertility, and alleviates erectile dysfunction. Iodine - The thyroid needs iodine to function properly, and lots of people now suffer from iodine deficiencies. To test yourself, place some iodine (we use 2%) on your stomach. Make a dot the size of a silver dollar (or twice the size of a British 50p). If it disappears within 12 hours, then you are iodine deficient. Keep adding iodine in increasing amounts, until it no longer disappears in a 12-hour period. This works due to the fact that the body absorbs iodine at the rate at which it is needed. Do not use povidone iodine and do not orally consume iodine. This is especially an important precaution for those with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Avoid all sources of fluoride - As already mentioned, fluoride suppresses the thyroid, and is likely to be the leading cause of hypothyroidism. Drink spring water, avoid soft drinks, use fluoride-free toothpaste, use a shower filter, and throw away non-stick cookware. Both coffee and tea naturally contain fluoride, so use iodine to compensate if these drinks are indispensable. Eat a natural diet - To help the body to heal itself, remove burdens on its immune system. This means that all processed foods, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, white flour, white sugar, table salt, hydrogenated oils, aluminum, high fructose corn syrup, and etcetera should be eliminated from the diet. Organic food is the ideal. Do not trust marketing that reads "All Natural", because this phrase is unregulated, so anyone can use it for anything. Read labels carefully. Chlorophyll - Supplementing with chlorophyll provides essential copper, helps oxygenate the body, builds healthy red blood cells, and it overall assists with skin health. Chlorophyll is a safe method of orally supplementing with copper. Those who are using our Colloidal Copper Lotion are unlikely to need more copper. Zinc and Selenium: Studies indicate that severe zinc or selenium deficiencies can cause decreased thyroid hormone levels. Never take zinc on an empty stomach. Brazil nuts are high in both zinc and selenium. Coconut Oil: Buy organic, cold-pressed, coconut oil from a health food store. Take around 1 teaspoon of it daily. You can also use it to cook with, but be warned that it smokes at low cooking temperatures, so it should only be used for low-heat cooking. Coconut oil speeds the metabolism, encourages production of the thyroid hormone, and kills candida yeast.

"I can't lose weight on levothyroxine":
 
04:10
I hear this complaint every day, yet the solution is SO simple. The Undoctored lifestyle is magnificently effective to achieve weight loss, prevent or reverse hundreds of health conditions, and to free you from prescription medications. But many people who take levothyroxine (Synthroid), the T4 thyroid hormone, report NO weight loss on the program, along with persistent abnormal symptoms such as low energy, dry skin, and thinning hair, even depression. This is not due to the failure of the program, but is due to the lack of the T3 thyroid hormone, the truly active form of thyroid hormone. Learn why addressing and correcting the T3 thyroid hormone is crucial and allows Undoctored program benefits to unfold. But you may have to fire your doctor and find one who is better informed on thyroid health to get this important component of health done right. About Undoctored: We are entering a new age in which the individual has astounding power over health--but don't count on the doctor or healthcare system to tell you this. We draw from the health information of the world, collaborate, share experiences, collect data, and show how to apply new health tools to achieve levels of health that you may have thought unattainable. We do all this at a time when conventional healthcare costs have become crippling. The result: personal health that is SUPERIOR to that obtained through conventional means.

How to Find the Best Thyroid medication for Your Body - NDT vs T3 vs T4 only medication
 
16:23
In this video I explain how I determine which thyroid medication a patient needs. There are basically three main choices in medications: 1) Natural Desiccated thyroid medication (including armour thyroid, naturethroid and WP thyroid) 2) T3 only medication (including Liothyronine, cytomel and sustained release T3) 3) T4 only medication (including levothyroxine, tirosint and synthroid) The question is how do you determine which medication works best for you? Patients who do well on NDT medication include: - Those who have not felt better on T4 only preparations - Those who need to lose 10-20 pounds of fat - Those who have not been on thyroid medication before - Those with Low free T3 and low Free T4 but normal reverse T3 levels Patients who do better on T3 only medications: - Those with high levels of reverse T3 - Those with leptin resistance - Those with insulin resistance, diabetes or pre diabetes - Those with a personal history of bipolar disorder or a strong family history of mental health disorders - Those with chronic illness Patients who do better on T4 only medications: - Those who are VERY sensitive to all supplements and medications - Those with extreme sensitivities to T3 containing medications More information in the video and the full blog post can be found here: http://www.restartmed.com/levothyroxine-side-effects/ You can read more on my website here: https://www.restartmed.com/ This video is not intended to be used as medical advice.

Tirosint vs Levothyroxine - The case for Switching Thyroid Medication
 
24:35
Tirosint is a T4 only thyroid medication but with some twists. Many patients report significant improvement in hypothyroid symptoms when switching from T4 only medications like Levothyroxine and Synthroid over to Tirosint. But how can that be? Especially when Tirosint is a T4 only medication? This occurs for several reasons: 1) Inactive ingredients - + Levothyroxine and Synthroid contain MANY inactive ingredients (complete list in the video) which your body may be reacting to and limiting absorption. These inactive ingredients may be causing negative side effects that mimic hypothyroidism or limit your ability to reach the optimal dose. Tirosint has 3 inactive ingredients and 1 active ingredient making it the "cleanest" thyroid medication (T4 only). 2) Decreased absorption - + Due to these inactive ingredients the absorption of Levothyroxine and Synthroid may be inferior to that of Tirosint. The fewer inactive ingredients means the more thyroid hormone that will be absorbed which means the better you symptoms will be. This is also very important for hypothyroid patients who have GI related conditions such as SIBO/SIFO, GERD and low stomach acid. Tirosint is more easily absorbed and utilized than other forms of thyroid hormone due to these reasons. Who should consider using Tirosint? - Patients with GI related issues - Patients who don't tolerate Synthroid or Levothyroxine - Patients with multiple sensitivities or food allergies - Patients with Leaky gut or increased intestinal permeability - Patients who don't tolerate T3 containing medications like NDT and/or liothyronine/cytomel - Patients who are extremely sensitive to medications and supplements - Patients who have experienced some improvement on Levothyroxine or Synthroid but still have room for improvement If you have any questions please leave your comments below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

(TBS #15) Why Does Hypothyroidism (& Hashimoto’s) Cause Hair Loss?
 
09:58
Today is all about your thyroid and hair loss. Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism often result in hair loss in many patients which can be a big struggle. Finding the cause of hair loss in your situation is incredibly important and can help you regrow your hair. I've created 4 main categories that lead to hair loss in thyroid patients that need to be evaluated in each case of hair loss: #1. Your thyroid medication dose. If your medication is too high or too high it may result in hair loss. Most people suffer from an insufficient dose or lower than normal free T3 levels which lead to hair loss. But some patients may have a suppressed TSH and high free T3 which can also contribute to hair loss. It's important to make sure your dose is in that Goldilocks range. #2. Your iron (or other nutrients) levels. Perhaps one of the most important factors for hair growth is your ferritin or iron level. Thyroid patients are at increased risk for iron deficiency (low ferritin) which will make growing your hair back impossible. Make sure to check your ferritin and ensure it is in the optimal range (40-60). #3. Your thyroid medication itself. One of the most frustrating things for patients to learn is that their thyroid medication itself can lead to hair loss. This is usually the result of inactive dyes or fillers inside of the medication. You can fight this problem by simply switching to a different medication inside the same class (switch it with a "cleaner" version). #4. Testosterone and androgen levels. High testosterone (or high androgen) can lead to hair loss as well in hypothyroid patients. Low thyroid hormone can dysregulate testosterone metabolism and lead to high levels of DHT. You can fight this by taking certain supplements to help force testosterone conversion away from DHT. Hey guys! I'm Dr. Westin Childs and I focus on thyroid health, hormone balance, and weight loss. I write about thyroid disorders, weight loss, insulin resistance, estrogen/progesterone balance on my blog. I truly believe that hormone balance is the key to managing your weight, your mood and your quality of life which is why I'm so passionate about it. I take a personalized/functional medicine approach to management of conditions. I'm not accepting patients but you can learn more and get plenty of information on my blog!

5 Reasons Armour thyroid Isn't Helping you with Weight Loss
 
21:44
In this video I go over the 5 main reasons that patients who switch from Levothyroxine to Armour thyroid DON'T lose weight. Many patients believe that switching from T4 to NDT will cause immediate weight loss and are disappointed when it doesn't happen. The truth is that Armour thyroid CAN help with weight loss but you need to make sure that these 5 barriers aren't standing in your way: 1. Your dose isn't high enough - Many Doctors under dose patients when converting from T4 medication to NDT by about 50%. Use the chart in this video to make sure your dose is high enough. 2. You need more T3 added to your regimen - Several conditions like euthyroid sick syndrome or tissue level hypothyroidism make it so patients need more T3 than what Armour thyroid provides. So while armour may be a step in the right direction you may need more T3 added to your NDT. 3. You are suffering from Leptin resistance - High leptin levels decrease T4 to T3 conversion and can make weight loss impossible unless it is addressed. Use this video to help you find out if you have leptin resistance and if you need to treat it. 4. You are reacting to fillers in Armour thyroid - Many patients react poorly to the methylcellulose that is used in Armour thyroid. It can reduce the amount of free thyroid hormone that is absorbed when you take this medication. Make sure this isn't limiting the amount of thyroid hormone your body can absorb! 5. Your Reverse T3 is TOO high - High levels of reverse T3 effectively put the brake on your thyroid system and can result in a slow metabolism and symptoms of hypothyroidism. Taking T4 only medications and even sometimes NDT like armour thyroid can cause high levels of reverse T3. Find out how to treat and check for this condition.

Hypothyroidism case study 40 pound weight loss over 6 months with before/after pictures
 
28:06
Video #2 in a weight loss with hypothyroidism video series. This video represents an actual hypothyroid patient from my practice who lost 40 pounds over 6 months with before/after pictures. You will immediately notice her changes in the picture above and I walk you through in detail how YOU can get these types of changes as well. Hypothyroid patients almost always have difficulty with weight loss due to a variety of reasons. Most patients wrongly believe that their weight loss problem is due primarily to a lack of thyroid hormone and that's where they are wrong. Low thyroid hormone by itself causes a slow metabolism but it also causes and encourages other hormone imbalances. Specifically, it leads to insulin resistance, leptin resistance, and even estrogen/progesterone imbalances. It is these changes that make future weight loss impossible. So that means focusing on thyroid hormone alone generally won't result in significant weight loss. Even adding on NDT or T3 to your regimen will likely result in 5-10 pounds of weight loss at MOST. Compare that to focusing on the other hormone imbalances and you can see the advantage in this case study above. I show you exactly how to test for the following hormone imbalances: 1. Adrenal related issues (checking cortisol levels) 2. Thyroid resistance (by checking free T3 and reverse T3) 3. Low testosterone (by checking free and total testosterone) 4. Estrogen dominance (by checking estradiol + progesterone) 5. Checking for leptin resistance (by checking fasting serum leptin levels) 6. Checking for insulin resistance (by checking fasting insulin and Hgb A1c) I also go over the treatment for each of these conditions and show you how the patient above was able to get these results. This particular patient has Hashimoto's thyroiditis, but this will also work for patients who have hypothyroidism. In addition,​ I go over how to correctly pick the right diet to allow for weight loss in this patient population.

Does Cytomel Help with Weight Loss? Dosing guide + How to use it
 
21:54
Cytomel is a thyroid medication which contains T3. T3 is the active thyroid hormone which is responsible for the majority of actions related to your thyroid. That means T3 directly stimulates increased energy production, increased fat burn and increased metabolism. Through these mechanisms, and many others, cytomel and T3 can actually help certain thyroid patients to lose weight and feel better. Patients who should consider using T3 include: - Those with high reverse T3 levels. - Those with insulin resistance, leptin resistance or obesity. - Those with a history of bipolar disorder or depression. - Those with a history of fibromyalgia or chronic pain. - And lastly, those patients who have failed T4 only medications like synthroid or Levothyroxine. In this video I also outline how to use T3 and how to titrate your dose.

(TBS #17) What’s the Best Way to Take your Thyroid Medication? AM vs PM? Split Dosing?
 
10:06
Today is lesson #17 and it's all about the best way to take thyroid medication. Should you take your thyroid medication in the morning? Should you take it in the evening? Should you split your dose? Should you take it on an empty stomach? All of these questions and more will be answered. First off... why does it matter when or how you take your thyroid medication? The first thing you should know is that in order for thyroid hormone to be activated it MUST be absorbed by your body. If it isn't absorbed then you won't feel better. When you take it or how you take it may alter how much is absorbed which may impact how you feel. What time of day that you take your medication matters: Newer studies have shown that taking your thyroid medication in the evening may actually help increase free thyroid hormone levels. This is felt to be because the GI tract is more active during the morning which means that you may not absorb as much of it at that time. In addition, many people drink coffee and caffeine in the morning which activates your GI tract. Should you take it with or without meals? Taking thyroid hormone with meals may result in decreased absorption of your medication as your body competes with food and energy for absorption. To avoid this you should take your thyroid medication on an empty stomach. You can pretty much avoid this issue entirely by taking your thyroid medication in the evening because most people don't eat right before bed! What about supplements? There are a range of supplements which also interfere with how well your body can absorb your medication. These supplements include: - Iron - Calcium - Sucralfate - Acid blockers - Caffeine - Iodine - Fiber If you take your thyroid medication with these supplements then the amount that you absorb may be reduced! And, lastly, should you split your dose throughout the day? You don't necessarily have to do this but you may find an improvement in your symptoms by doing so. Splitting your dose may look like this: Instead of taking 100mcg of T4 in the morning you may want to take 50mcg in the morning and 50 in the evening. Some people feel better by doing this. Hey guys!

5 Tips for Weight Loss after Thyroidectomy: What your Doctor is Missing
 
25:19
Weight loss after thyroidectomy can be almost impossible unless you know exactly what to look for and how to treat it. It's considered "normal" to gain 20 pounds after thyroidectomy and Doctors tell patients that this is normal and in the same breath then say that the thyroid isn't causing the weight gain. How can this be? It is possible to lose weight after thyroidectomy but it takes a very different approach. Eating less and exercising more will NOT lead to significant weight loss if you've had a thyroidectomy or your thyroid ablated with radioactive iodine. Instead you need to be focusing on hormone imbalances that lead to weight gain. I've also included a diet guide to follow in addition to the following 5 tips which I explain in detail in the video. 5 Tips for weight loss after thyroidectomy: 1. Get on the right type and dose of thyroid medication - for most patients this means a combination of T3 and T4. So medications like cytomel or liothyronine in addition to levothyroxine/synthroid or the use of natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) will most likely be necessary. 2. Increase your free T3 - you need to be doing whatever is in your power to naturally increase your free T3. The more t3 you can in your system the higher your metabolism will be and the more weight you will lose. 3. Balance all other hormones in the body - I list several hormones, but the main ones I want you to focus on are insulin resistance and leptin resistance. Until these 2 are treated it will be almost impossible for you to lose weight. 4. Be strict with your diet but don't restrict calories - one of the worst things you can do is restrict your calories down to 1,000-1,200 calories per day. This will cause high reverse T3 levels and further reduce your metabolism. Instead be strict with WHAT you put in your mouth but don't restrict your calories. 5. When you have energy make sure you make exercise count - that means a combination of low intensity daily plus high intensity 1-3x per week.

Diabetes Signs and Symptoms (2018)
 
04:24
Do I Have Diabetes | Signs Of Diabetes | Diabetes Symptoms In Men & Women | Early Signs Of Diabetes | Early Warning Signs Of Diabetes Hey guys! This weeks video is about the signs of diabetes. Having some of the signs of diabetes doesn’t mean you definitely have the condition, but you should always contact your GP, just to make sure. Type 2 diabetes can cause serious long-term health problems. It can be easy to miss as it develops slowly, especially in the early stages when it can be harder to spot the symptoms. If left untreated diabetes affects many major organs, including your heart, blood vessels, nerves, eyes and kidneys. Being diagnosed early and controlling your blood sugar levels can help prevent these complications. COMMON SYMPTOMS OF DIABETES: • Urinating more often than usual, particularly at night • Feeling very thirsty • Feeling very tired • Unexplained weight loss • Itching around the penis or vagina, or frequent episodes of thrush • Cuts or wounds that heal slowly • Blurred vision – caused by the lens of the eye becoming dry WHY DO WE GET THESE SYMPTOMS IN DIABETES: These symptoms occur because some or all of the glucose stays in the blood, and isn’t being used as fuel for energy. The body tries to reduce blood glucose levels by flushing the excess glucose out of the body in the urine. High levels of glucose being passed in the urine are a perfect breeding ground for the fungal infection which causes thrush. RISK FACTORS FOR TYPE 2 DIABETES: Three of the main risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes are: Age – Being over the age of 40 (over 25 for people of south Asian, Chinese, African-Caribbean or black African origin, even if you were born in the UK). Genetics – Having a close relative with the condition, such as a parent, brother or sister. Weight – Being overweight or obese. More information at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/type-2-diabetes/causes/ SYMPTOMS OF FUNGAL THRUSH INFECTIONS: Thrush is a yeast infection (candida albicans) which tends to affect warm, moist areas of the body such as the vagina, penis, mouth and certain areas of skin. Thrush is more common in people with diabetes as high sugar levels lead to better conditions for the yeast to grow. Vaginal thrush (vulvovaginal candidiasis) symptoms include: • Soreness and irritation • White curd appearance on the skin • Pain during sexual intercourse • White vaginal discharge • Reddening of the vulva (the outer parts of the vagina) • Itching around the vagina (infectious vaginitis) Oral thrush (oral candidiasis) symptoms include: • A nasty or bitter taste • Redness or bleeding inside the mouth • Creamy white coloured patches (lesions) in the mouth (cheeks, lips, tongue or the back of the mouth) • Painful and sore mouth (can include the throat) • Cracks at the corners of the lips (angular cheilitis) Thrush in men (candida balanitis) Symptoms of thrush in men include: • Reddening or swelling or soreness of the glans (head) of the penis • Itching around the tip of the penis • Discharge beneath the foreskin • Nasty odour • Pain during urination • White curd-like appearance on the skin • Painful experience during sex PREVENTING TYPE 2 DIABETES: If you're at risk of type 2 diabetes, you may be able to prevent it developing by making lifestyle changes: • Eating a healthy, balanced diet • Losing weight if you're overweight, and maintaining a healthy weight • Stopping smoking if you smoke • Drinking alcohol in moderation • Taking plenty of regular exercise For more information please visit the following links: https://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Diabetes/Pages/Avoiddiabetes.aspx https://www.diabetes.org.uk/preventing-type-2-diabetes/can-diabetes-be-prevented Want to see more videos about everything health and pharmacy?

Byetta Weight Loss - 42 pounds over 3 months with NDT + T3 + Byetta with Before/After pictures
 
28:06
Do you have hypothyroidism and insulin resistance? This case study is from my practice and in this video I walk you through a patient who was able to lose 42 pounds over three months using Byetta, Natural desiccated thyroid and T3 containing medication. The problem with weight loss is that most patients approach it all wrong. They believe that eating less and exercising more will lead to long lasting weight loss and it just isn't true. Instead patients and Doctors should be focusing on hormone imbalances that lead to weight loss resistance. The top three most common hormone imbalances that lead to weight loss resistance include: 1. Thyroid resistance 2. Insulin resistance 3. Leptin resistance Many patients do know that they have hypothyroidism but many miss out that they have both insulin and leptin resistance, and that's why I made this case study. The unfortunate part is that certain medications like the GLP-1 agonists can help reverse insulin and leptin resistance. These medications are primarily used for type II diabetes but a subgroup of obese, non diabetic women (with high leptin levels) respond very well to this medication and can lose a significant amount of weight. In this case study I also show you what it takes in terms of diet, exercise, medications, hormones and supplements to help hypothyroid patients with insulin resistance lose 40 pounds.

Which Type of Thyroid Hormone is Best?
 
06:23
What do you do if you have been diagnosed with hypothyroid and started medication, but still are not feeling much better? One simple step is to try a T4/T3 combination hormone (Armor, Nature-Throid) if you have been using a T4-only medication like Synthroid or levothyroxine. Let’s review a study that showed that the majority of patients preferred a T4/T3 combination over T4 alone. Then let’s discuss why you should save your money on expanded thyroid panels if neither of these has helped, and what you should do. Want more info?
