The thyroid's role is to maintain the body's regulatory functions down to the cellular level. Cellular function declines as a result of aging and the daily effects of stress and environmental toxins on the body. Thyroid dysfunction can cause damage to the central nervous system, the kidneys, heart and the hormone-producing endocrine system.
Research reports that 80% of the population has some level of thyroid dysfunction, making screening very important. Traditional thyroid screening utilizes a blood test that can be painful, costly and misleading, particularly in patients with sub-clinical hypothyroidism. Thyroid problems are often misdiagnosed, under diagnosed, and either undertreated, not treated optimally, nor not treated at all, because laboratory testing does not give a full picture of thyroid disease.
