For relatively healthy individuals, finding a good doctor does not seem hard to do. When medical issues respond well to conventional treatment, it is easy and comfortable to rely on one's physician and not look much further for answers. However, with certain conditions, and for certain individuals, achieving good health can prove to be much more elusive. The symptoms of compromised thyroid and adrenal functions are broad and often overlap. These are conditions that impact every system in the body and cause symptoms that are frequently treated individually without looking for the underlying cause. This includes high blood pressure, fluid retention, sleep issues and acid reflux, to name just a few.
We encourage everyone to find a healthcare professional with whom to work. Understanding the basics about thyroid and adrenal functioning will help both in the search for a healthcare professional and in working with him or her when found.
Always consult your healthcare professionals when making health-related decisions.
