Beyond the Diagnosis with Dr. Kylie

124: Don’t Have a Thyroid? Here’s What To Do

May 17, 2022

If you don't have a thyroid due to a thyroidectomy or Hashimoto's and are suffering from symptoms like the inability to lose weight or rapid weight gain, restless leg syndrome, extreme fatigue, feeling cold all the time, and other typical hypothyroid symptoms, this episode is for you.

Karen Martel is a Certified Hormone Specialist & Transformational Nutrition Coach and expert in women’s weight loss, and she is back on the show by popular demand.

We talk about:

  • The key thyroid hormone lab tests your doctor probably isn't running that will find the root cause of your symptoms
  • Optimal ranges for thyroid labs
  • What to do when your doctor won't order the labs for you
  • Why your current thyroid medication isn't working and what to do instead
  • The role heavy metals play in hypothyroidism and our take on heavy metal detoxes
