Hypothyroidism as it Relates to Depression, Obesity, Liver Disease, Hyperlipidemia, Cardiovascular Disease, Miscarriages and More

This week we are discussing hypothyroidism.  In previous broadcasts we have discussed different aspects of this extremely prevalent condition, including thyroid autoimmunity, thyroid conversion, and subclinical hypothyroidism.  Today, we will present these different aspects of thyroid disorders so that those with hypothyroidism can understand relationships of this disease to depression, obesity, liver disease, hyperlipidemia, cardiovascular disease, and miscarriage to name a few.
Please enjoy, and send us your questions.  Please forward us any questions here on our website or go to our Power Health Facebook page http://powerhealthreno.com/Facebook

  1. very informative, I wish you guys were in my corona or Riverside, California. I’m driving my endocrinologist crazy..lol. I have seen several Doctors and my current one seems to be more caring though lately states all my test are in guidelines and sends me on my way.
    Would you have any doctors know any doctors in my area that share y our same opinion and or study?

    Thank you, LJ

  2. Thank you for sending us your message, and we are sorry to hear that you have been struggling with your help without answers. At this time, we do not know anyone down in Riverside/Corona. A significant percentage of our patients are now traveling from out of state to be evaluated, and if it appears we can help them then we set a distance program for managing their case so that they do not have to continue traveling to see us.
