Optimization of thyroid function in the face of disease, or thyroid removal, can be a challenging task. Not everyone responds to the standard of care medications, such as Synthroid or Levothyroxine. That does not leave you destined to experience symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, cold hands and feet, constipation, depression, body pain or brain fog. Other medications are available, including desiccated thyroid hormone, which combines not only T4 (the hormone available in synthroid/ levothyroxine) but also T3, which is the main active thyroid hormone.

Dr. Sarah has years of experience investigating and treating thyroid conditions, both on and off medication and she can help you to decide which medications, supplements and dietary interventions would be best suited for you.
