Why do I still have thyroid symptoms when my lab tests are normal?

Our Approach to Your Thyroid Problem may be the answer you've been Searching for!

Thyroid conditions affect over 30 million Americans and half go undiagnosed.

Most thyroid issues go undiagnosed because the correct testing has not been done. How do you know if you should get tested? People with thyroid conditions notice weight gain despite diet or exercise, sleep problems, hot flashes, depression, cold hands and feet, thinning or losing hair, brain fog, dry skin, infertility, and constipation. Most people get the standard Thyroid Stimulating Hormone test (TSH) to check their thyroid function, however there is no study that shows its accuracy in checking for proper thyroid activity.

Proper evaluation is imperative when evaluating the thyroid function. Factors that play a role in its function include the tissue and cells ability to communicate to the thyroid and other organs, how the liver and digestive system make available thyroid hormone, the level of available hormone in the body, the amount of iodine available for the thyroid to make hormone, the function of the pituitary gland, and the amount of selenium available and absorbed by the body. All of those factors must be evaluated when determining if there is a thyroid condition.

5 Tips to Jumpstart Your Thyroid

Why You Still Struggle with Thyroid Symptoms.

Many woman and men take thyroid hormone replacement and continue to suffer with symptoms. Some feel worse but many still suffer with Unresolved symptoms. We can help you understand why!

My Big Picture Approach To Thyroid Disease Focuses on You

When someone suffers with Hypothyroidism or Hashimotos Disease, they need an approach that is personalized. This is why Functional Medicine is so different. Our approach looks at the BIG picture and then tailors a healing program that meets, your needs and your individual goals.

We assess each person’s unique physiology and implement a personalized approach. We work with your body not against your body.

Why does our approach work so well? Stop for just a moment and ask yourself, “Why am I still having thyroid symptoms?”, “What is triggering my immune system to attack my thyroid?”, “What events In my life have exacerbated this condition?”

When you start to ask these questions, we begin to get meaningful answers. Meaningful answers translate into the ability of creating meaningful healing treatment programs. You can’t fix something If you don’t know what caused it to breakdown. This is one of the problem with our current health care system- It doesn’t ask “WHY”

At Dr Hagmeyer.com, We look at the BIG picture. There are many layers to Thyroid disease and Hashimotos, like a layer of a bad onion, we need to peel back these layers.

What Makes us Different?

We ask Different Questions, We run Different Testing and we offer a Different treatment approach. While we do monitor your thyroid hormone levels, we do not prescribe thyroid medication. Instead, we want to know WHY your thyroid is not producing T3 and T4 Thyroid Hormones. Taking Thyroid replacement does not address the Root Cause of why your thyroid levels are low in the first place.

Whether you have Hashimotos or Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism, we leave no stone left unturned in providing you the answers you are searching for.

Bringing Functional lab testing into the picture allows us to better understand where these “bad layers” of dysfunctional physiology exist. If you have been trying to overcome the symptoms of hypothyroidism or you are trying to stabilize your immune system in an effort to prevent another Hashimotos flareup- We can help! With over 20 years of experience in helping patients get their lives back, we promise to do everything we can to help you feel good again.

Before I started working with Dr Hagmeyer, I was exhausted! not just tired, I was wiped out. I was sleeping my life away and had no energy to do things with my family. I was going downhill! Brain fog, depression, gaining weight no matter how much I exercised- I didn’t like the person I had become. Within 3 months of working with Dr Hagmeyer I’ve lost 25 pounds, and I feel like a different person. I have a lot more energy, and I sleep better at night. Dr Hagmeyer has changed my life and I am eternally grateful.

In 2019, my doctor diagnosed with high cholesterol, hypertension, Type II diabetes, and Hashimotos disease. I was being medicated from morning to night and despite medications, I felt no different, but worse.
I came across Dr Hagemeyer’s YouTube videos and felt incredibly encouraged that there are doctors out there who know how to help people like me.
I’ve been working with Dr Hagmeyer for the past year and I have found him incredibly caring, knowledgeable and his methods of healing very effective.

Did you know Thyroid Disease…

1 in 8 woman will develop Thyroid disease in their lifetime

Many women who have thyroid disease do not even know that they have it. Despite countless efforts to communicate with your doctor, your symptoms are ignored in favor of inferior testing and poor lifestyle assessment.

Is the most common autoimmune disease?

It is estimated that 9 out of every 10 patients with thyroid related disease in fact have an autoimmune disease. Despite this information, many doctors do not test for the condition known as Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. In this case the thyroid is a victim instead of the primary problem.

It CAN be addressed naturally!

Nationwide Treatment for Patients

Dr. Hagmeyer offers nationwide, long-distance appointments via phone or teleconference calls. New patients are accepted from anywhere in the United States.  Following an initial consultation, we can determine if we are a good fit for you and what will be the next best steps. Testing can be done wherever you live and are often a combination of blood, stool, Saliva, urine and breath. These tests can often be done at home with in-home collection kits.

Each patient is different and the testing we provide is personalized only once we have thoroughly reviewed your case.

Once we receive your test results, we will schedule a follow up appointment and review any of your abnormal test results. During that appointment we also review our recommendations for treatment. Once you have started your treatment we monitor your progress at specific intervals, making any necessary adjustments to fine tune your treatment plan. We are with you every step of the way!

I’ve worked with Dr. Hagmeyer via phone and computer, primarily because I was unable to find anyone with his knowledge and ability in putting all the health pieces of my health puzzle together.

Suffering with thyroid symptoms, hormone imbalances, gut problems, adrenal problems, and mold exposure. I found Dr Hagmeyer to be one of the most detail oriented, organized, and knowledgeable doctors I have ever come across. Dr Hagmeyer truly has a skill that few doctors possess these days. I never felt rushed and always felt Dr Hagmeyer cared about my wellbeing and progress.
