Thyroid hormone plays a major role in regulating metabolism, energy levels, body temperature and in keeping the brain, heart and muscles functioning well. An under active thyroid can lead to weight gain, low body temperature, depression, dry skin, hair thinning, decreased sex drive, joint pain and muscle aches, high cholesterol and fatigue.
To guide us in tailoring a medical plan specific for your needs, we use a simple 10-minute breath test to measure metabolism and to determine exactly how many calories you burn in a day.
