About Metabolic Problems

Metabolic problems are health issues that include such problems as low thyroid, autoimmunity, diabetes, hormone imbalance, adrenal fatigue, chronic inflammation, food intolerances, gastrointestinal and digestive problems, chemical sensitivities, stealth infections and more.

The first challenge with these problems is figuring out what’s going on (what could be actually driving your issues), identifying the hidden root causes of the imbalances and then taking steps to correct the issues.

Have you ever felt like something was wrong, but the labs all came back as normal?   Or maybe your doctor told you it’s all in your head, yet you continue to suffer with symptoms (like weight gain, hair falling out, nervousness, irritability, digestive problems, sleep problems, low energy, brain fog, low libido, skin problems, cracked or weak nails, blood sugar imbalances, etc..).  You’re frustrated, and haven’t found anyone who can connect the dots.

Welcome to Chronic Conditions Center in Pittsburgh.  We offer functional medicine services to find and correct these mysterious ailments.


How We Address Metabolic Problems

Our method involves starting out with a comprehensive medical history. We want to understand what is going on, and what you’ve previously tried to fix the problem. Next, you will be asked to complete some questionnaires. These aren’t a diagnostic. We use them to figure out where to start looking. After that, we’ll usually order some preliminary blood tests to establish a medical baseline.

As we start to put the puzzle together, we’ll know which labs you’ll need to get clear, objective information so we can design the ideal treatment plan. Rather than a “one size fits all” approach (which you see in medicine), our methods are to design a customized, and personalized care plan, tailor fit for you. We are interested in treating the whole person rather than chasing down symptoms with drugs.
