Suffering from Thyroid Issues and Looking for Thyroid Support and Answers?
Are you suffering from common low thyroid symptoms such as:
An inability to lose weight, even with diet and exercise -- Being fatigued and tired most of the time -- Needing an excessive amount of sleep to function -- Having memory issues or a "foggy brain" -- Depression or lack of motivation -- Hair loss or thinning of the hair -- Constipation or bowel problems -- Hot flashes or feeling cold all the time -- Decreased libido
Or have you been told that your thyroid was normal but you are still suffering from symptoms (even if you're on medication)?
If so, then Dr. Rebecca Burton is the one who can help you with thyroid support and answers!
Many of Dr. Burton's patients came to her after being misdiagnosed, underdiagnosed or their thyroid issues continued while in the care of a primary physician or practitioner. That is because there are many things that can cause thyroid problems. But most doctors only look at TSH levels for the diagnosis and treatment of low thyroid.
The problem with this is, there are 6 patterns of low thyroid that can cause problems...and NOT affect your TSH levels. So, if TSH is all that is looked at for a diagnosis, something will get missed. This is why your lab work may come back "normal" even though you are experiencing one or more symptoms listed above.
If this sounds like you, you're in the right place!

You are currently being treated for low thyroid but can't lose weight.
If you are currently under treatment for low thyroid by your primary care physician or practitioner and you still can’t lose weight despite your treatment plan, something is happening within to cause the problem, and something has been missed in your diagnosis. There is a twisted web of things that go wrong when your thyroid isn’t working properly, and it takes deep investigation to determine how this is causing your inability to lose weight.
More dieting and exercising simply cannot correct the reasons for why you are continuing to suffer.
Dr. Burton will do the necessary investigation to get at the real cause or problems behind the symptom, so a truly effective program can be developed for you.
You are currently being treated for low thyroid, but you still suffer from symptoms.
Symptoms of an underactive thyroid that persist even after “successful” treatment are a red flag that something is still going on underneath the surface.
If you are still suffering from low thyroid symptoms, such as fatigue, needing excessive amounts of sleep to function, depression, weight gain or difficulty losing weight, hair loss or decreased libido, and you are being treated and told by your doctor your thyroid is fine, there’s a high probability that something has been missed.
The only way to discover what it is that is “missing” with your diagnosis is through reevaluation. Don’t expect underactive thyroid symptoms that are persisting to go away in time on their own. Dr. Burton specializes in thyroid support and can get to the root cause of your thyroid issues.
You have low thyroid symptoms, but you have not been diagnosed.
Most traditional medical doctors and practitioners look at TSH as the main cause for diagnosing someone with low thyroid. But did you know that there are actually six core patterns that will cause all of the low thyroid symptoms but won’t affect your TSH levels? Therefore, a failure to consider and look at these patterns is the primary reason you may go undiagnosed for low thyroid (even though you suffer from all of the symptoms).
If your TSH is all that your physician looks at and those TSH levels appear perfectly fine, it is highly likely you will not be diagnosed for low thyroid.
If you are suffering with underactive thyroid symptoms, but have yet to be diagnosed, you need a more thorough evaluation. Dr. Burton is the one who can help. Her comprehensive evaluation looks at all aspects of what may be causing your thyroid issues (including all six patterns of low thyroid) to ensure you get the proper support and care you need.
