At the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, we take a multi-tiered approach to treating hypothyroidism. We will perform a blood test to measure free thyroxine (free T4) and to determine whether thyroid antibodies are present.
We look at total cholesterol and LDL levels because these are often elevated in patients with hypothyroidism. However, our primary criterion for diagnosis — and for evaluating the effects of hypothyroidism treatment — is how the patient feels. Watch this video and learn how you can get your life back.
