Dr. Luis knows thyroid health well. With over 10 years of clinical experience and living with Hashimoto’s for many years herself, she has helped thousands get back to optimal health.
Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Grave’s disease are complex conditions and while the right hormone prescription helps if needed, there are many other aspects of inflammation to treat. Taking a different well-rounded approach and providing patients with options for thyroid medication has helped Dr. Luis become a leader in thyroid health.
Interestingly, both overactive and underactive thyroid conditions can have similar symptoms like fatigue, hair loss, irregular periods, headaches, insomnia and swelling. It is only through extensive testing that the full thyroid picture can be evaluated. TSH, T4, T3, reverse T3, anti-thyroperoxidase antibodies and antithyroglobulin antibodies are tested by blood for the most complete thyroid picture. Supportive nutrients such as Vitamin D, iron, magnesium and Vitamin B12 can provide information about auto-immune tendencies, transportation of hormones and more.
