Thyroid Optimization in Green Bay, WI
An Integrative Approach to Thyroid Optimization
If there is a master switch in the body that has the ability to effect every single organ system, the thyroid gland would have its hand on the switch…
The thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped organ that sits at the base of the neck in front of the windpipe. The thyroid gland makes thyroid hormones. In order to make these hormones, the thyroid must first uptake iodine from the blood stream.
These hormones regulate the rate of metabolism and affect the optimal function of many other systems in the body. Women are 5X more likely than men to have thyroid issues.
Doctor Steve Bittorf’s Approach and Testing
Dr. Steve believes in a comprehensive approach between conventional and alternative healing methods in balancing thyroid levels.
He will consider all body systems and lifestyle in determining the best plan of care. Most doctors rely on a TSH and T4 test.
However, more comprehensive testing including a free T4 and free T3 and reverse T3 can often pinpoint what standard tests miss.
