23 Nov Thyroid Health
An estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease.
Up to 60 percent of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition.
Women are five to eight times more likely than men to have thyroid problems. One woman in eight will develop a thyroid disorder during her lifetime.
Oftentimes patients have been told their standard labs are normal but they are still symptomatic.
Dr. Erin Winter focuses on optimizing your thyroid function by addressing symptoms and lab values together.
Naturopathic medicine uses nutrition, herbs, supplements, and medications so that you will always be treated as an individual, not a lab value.
