Thyroid Hormone and Your Health
Hormones have a very powerful influence on our physical health, general well-being, weight, and mental/emotional health. In many instances, even medical specialists such as endocrinologists have difficulty understanding why patients feel unwell despite normal lab work. When patients fall within normal blood test ranges, many doctors, including some who practice endocrinology, tend to ignore complaints of still feeling tired, gaining weight, losing hair, feeling cold, having dry skin, and/or feeling mentally depressed. They tell patients “Your labs are fine” and are not willing to budge on the treatment protocols– refusing to adjust or change anything, leaving patients frustrated and still unwell.
You are not a lab number. Labs are a guideline, but how you feel is most important in the clinical picture. Many patients experience subclinical hypothyroidism, which basically means labs are normal but the patient experiences many if not all of the classic signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism.
Many patients may benefit from seeking a second opinion–be it from another endocrinologist or a doctor who specializes in thyroid treatment like Dr. Lisa Maturo does. By ordering more detailed tests, really listening to the patient, and making appropriate adjustments, she can often help patients finally feel well.
This is precisely where Dr. Lisa Maturo finds her niche: helping people feel better by looking both at their blood work and their symptoms, and working with them as partners in health, until they are feeling back to their normal selves! Dr. Maturo not only has a naturopathic medical degree, but has proven through years of hands-on practice to be one of the most experienced and committed doctors throughout phoenix and throughout the country when it comes to thyroid treatment, and has become well known as an expert in her field of endocrinology and natural hormone health.
Attuned to the latest advancements in endocrinology and thyroid care, she offers the most current thyroid treatments in the field. And best of all, she understands and can truly empathize with her patients because she has been there herself, as a patient who suffered for decades with undiagnosed and misdiagnosed Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and hypothyroidism. So you will receive both her expertise and her genuine compassion, empathy and caring for her patients.
