Low Thyroid Relief In Pittsburgh PA
Are You Suffering With Low Thyroid Symptoms (Or Other Metabolic Problems) – Even Though Your Doctor Can’t Figure Out What’s Wrong, And Your Labs Came Back As “Normal”?
You’ve been suffering from chronic health problems for years. You’ve been to the doctors, gone through their lab tests, and were told that everything’s “normal”, yet you still feel awful. You know something’s wrong, but nobody can connect the dots for you and figure out the root cause. You realize the pills you’re taking are only masking the symptoms, but not addressing what’s driving the problems in the first place.
Does this sound familiar to you? If so, you’re not alone. Today, millions of people suffer from low thyroid symptoms. For the majority of people suffering from low thyroid, there are numerous hidden root causes that are driving the problems. Some of these causes include autoimmune disease (Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis), blood sugar imbalances, adrenal exhaustion, food sensitivities (like gluten intolerance, dairy, soy, and many other food “triggers”), anemia, hormone imbalances – even stealth infections.

How We Are Unique
Chronic Conditions Center offers a unique and different approach to diagnosing and treating thyroid problems. Our personalized, patient-centered method focuses on identifying and correcting the hidden root causes of what’s ultimately driving your problems.
As opposed to the traditional medical approach of alleviating symptoms with a drug, our all-natural, non-pharmaceutical methods involve removing toxins, balancing hormones, restoring function, and rebuilding the delicate interplay which naturally exists between the various systems of the body.
How we identify these hidden root causes is done through a series of laboratory tests (which may include testing the blood, urine, saliva, and stool). This objective and scientific method is comprehensive and provides depth and detail about the state of your overall health.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the symptoms of low thyroid levels?
Some of the symptoms of hypothyroidism include weight gain (even with diet & exercise), low energy, brain fog, anxiety & depression, nervousness & irritability, problems concentrating, poor memory, constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, distention, abdominal cramping, leaky gut syndrome, sleep disorders, dry brittle hair (that falls out), weak and cracked nails (in the fingers & toes), loss of the outer 1/3 of the eyebrow, infertility, abnormal menstrual cycles, dry-flaky or oily skin, and more. You don’t have to have all of these problems…you could have one, or more than one.
Who is affected by thyroid problems?
Thyroid problems affect about 30 million Americans every year, with women being impacted more than men by a ratio of 8:1. 97% of the time, the problem is low thyroid (or hypothyroidism).
What is the #1 cause of hypothyroidism?
Inside the United States, the #1 cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s Disease (an autoimmune disease). Outside of the US, the primary cause is iodine deficiency. Americans typically don’t suffer from iodine deficiency because we use a lot of iodized salt in our food.
How do you restore low thyroid?
First, we need to determine if the problem is being caused by an autoimmune problem (called Hashimoto’s disease). Second, we need to identify the various “triggers” that can disrupt normal thyroid function. And third, we need to restore balance to the various systems that are linked to thyroid physiology.
What are some of the triggers that cause low thyroid function?
Some of the triggers of hypothyroidism include anemias, blood sugar problems, adrenal issues (abnormal cortisol output), chronic inflammation, gastrointestinal problems, food intolerances, sex hormone imbalances, stealth infections, and chemical sensitivities. These can all be identified through proper lab testing.
