How effective is allopathic thyroid care? If Levothyroxine (Synthroid) has been a top 5 prescribed medication for decades how good a job is being done to truly help improve hypothyroidism?
Is allopathic medicine focused on:
– managing TSH
– suppressing symptoms
– identifying cause of hypothyroidism
The biggest problems we have today with the allopathic approach to thyroid physiology especially when it comes hypothyroidism are:
- We use one test (TSH) to identify hypothyroidism that has been shown in the literature to be influenced by too many factors to make it reliable as the sole determinant of hypothyroidism. It is also not an early marker of gland destruction as some sources indicate that nearly 90% of thyroid output may be lost before TSH rises above lab range.
- Doctors fail to realize that normalization of TSH, T4, and T3 in the blood does not necessarily equate to optimized cell levels of thyroid hormone and cellular euthyroidism.
- Doctors are not focused on WHY someone has glandular or cellular hypothyroidism. If the cause is never identified, then no correction can be made, nor expectation of cure or improvement should be expected. A lifetime of medications to manage TSH and symptoms becomes a very profitable solution.
- Lastly doctors don’t ask the most important question of all, ” Is the cellular or glandular hypothyroid state the problem that needs to be fixed, or the body’s attempt to protect and defend itself?”
