It’s estimated over 20 million American’s have some form of thyroid issue affecting them. The current medical model is failing us when it comes to conventional thyroid treatment. They take a very broad approach when it comes to diagnosing thyroid issues and many people get put on thyroid medications that don’t really need to be on. Or worse they get put on a medication that doesn’t alleviate the symptoms when the doctor is telling you that your levels are good. When it comes to thyroid treatment for men and women, the most common thyroid disease in America is hypothyroidism. This takes place when there are not enough thyroid hormones in the body.
Our functional medicine practitioners think outside the conventional medical model. We feel that it’s important for hormone levels to be at their “optimal” levels not just within the average. A very similar approach is taken with your Sex hormones: Testosterone, Estrogen and Progesterone.
At our Colorado Medical Solutions Denver clinic, we look at the big picture and take a comprehensive look at your physiology to make sure it’s all functioning optimally. In many cases when sex hormone optimization is unable to alleviate some of the symptoms is due to thyroid issue that is also present.

Absolutely! While we like to use natural thyroid hormone when we need to give thyroid hormone, our preference is always to manage naturally. Unlike sex hormones Testosterone, Estrogen and Progesterone which are much more difficult to optimize naturally, the thyroid can be. The process of managing the thyroid naturally is much more expensive and not covered by insurance. At Colorado Medical Solutions our practitioners will discuss the options you have both in and out of insurance.
Thyroid hormone is considered the master hormone in the body. Literally every cell in the body is powered by the effects of the thyroid gland. It is responsible for the bodies ability to extract energy from the food we eat and the air we breathe.
Absolutely! While hormones will not fix the disease itself, it will help with the management of it.
