Thyroid Hormone Testing

Join us Tuesday evening, Feb 16th in Walnut Creek, CA for a 3-course dinner by Chef Joni Sare and a discussion on Thyroid Health led by Steve Fowkes, nutrition expert.

Do you have persistent cold hands and feet, tendency towards constipation, borderline depression, sleeping problems, low body temperature, low pulse rate? You might have hypothyroidism.

The thyroid hormones produced by the thyroid gland control the body’s cellular energy. If the body can’t produce and/or use these hormones efficiently, the above symptoms can occur.

Certain tests are over prescribed and other tests are under prescribed, come to this event to find out which tests are available and a possible course of action for thyroid therapy. Click here for the handout (.pdf) which will be used during the dinner.
