Under Active Thyroid – Hypothyroidism

Welcome to our Hypothyroidism page!

Over the years, I’ve seen many patients with hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Graves’ disease, and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, with hypothyroidism being the most common.  I’ve also provided diet and nutrition support for those with thyroid cancer.

I’ve written articles/blog posts and answered questions about symptoms, diagnosing and treatment for thyroid problems, especially hypothyroid.  This page contains links to those articles/blog posts.

I hope you find this page helpful.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Use the contact form on the right.
