Do you have enough thyroid hormone for optimal health?

'Most patients taking supplemental thyroid hormone are not getting a dose high enough to reach optimal function and resist disease. This is the latest finding from Dr. Kathy Maupin, a pioneer in anti-aging medicine and medical director of BioBalance, and it underscores the critical importance of the thyroid to health. 

The reason is that the dosage prescribed is most often decided by arbitrary laboratory values that capture only a single moment in time and are not reflective of the true state of the patient. Instead of making judgments based on narrowly representative lab results, Dr. Maupin says, the dose should be decided by the resolution of symptoms. What a novel idea!'
