Hypothyroidism (Low Thyroid) and Associated Conditions
Dr. Kellman treats a wide variety of diseases, but he is especially known for his understanding and expert handling of thyroid disease, particularly hypothyroidism. He has successfully diagnosed and treated thousands of patients with hypothyroidism. Patients who had been suffering for years finally began to feel better, regained their energy and discovered the reason why they felt fatigued, couldn’t lose weight, were suffering from depression, hair loss and other symptoms.
If you complain of just one of the following conditions
- Weight gain
- Difficulty losing weight
- Slow metabolism Hair loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Low mood
- Cold intolerance
- Or if you have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia
Your thyroid might be low even if routine tests come out normal.
Millions of people in this country have hypothyroidism and yet routine blood test such as TSH, T4, and T3 come out normal. Deep down many people know there is something wrong with their metabolism and thyroid. Yet they are mistakenly told their thyroid is normal and needlessly suffer from fatigue or inability to lose weight regardless of how little they eat. Millions of people are being told “everything is normal” when in fact they have a slow or under-active thyroid.
If this sounds like you, you are not alone. If you have any of these above symptoms your thyroid might be low. Don’t let the routine thyroid tests mislead you.
Dr. Kellman is a pioneer in the use of a more sensitive thyroid test called the TRH stimulation test, which can detect hypothyroidism missed by the routine tests.
By using the TRH test, he has changed the lives of thousands of patients. These are people who had suffered fatigue for years and then regained their energy. Or people who couldn’t lose weight no matter how little they ate, and then lost weight. Or people misdiagnosed with depression and incorrectly put on anti-depressants, who improved in mood given thyroid hormone. Or people with “brain fog” and memory issues whose thinking and memory became sharp again after proper diagnosis and treatment. Many of these patients suspected they had low thyroid, but their doctors told them that the routine tests showed they were normal.
Landmark studies published in 2007, showing that the TRH test is the most accurate tool for diagnosing hypothyroidism and recommending the TRH test for accurate diagnosis. Not given this test, millions of people who actually do have a low thyroid continue to be misled, told by doctors that “everything is normal.”
Additionally, if you have been diagnosed with low thyroid and are taking thyroid medicine, and still complain of fatigue, difficulty losing weight, hair loss, etc you might not be on the right dose or may be on the wrong type of thyroid hormone, even if your blood tests show that you are on the right dose. By using the TRH stimulation test Dr. Kellman has found that indeed many people with hypothyroidism are not on the right dose of thyroid hormone. Additionally, many people are on the wrong type of hormone. By changing the dose and by using a combination of armour thyroid and natural T4 and untold number of patients finally began to feel well.
Dr. Kellman will also help you get to the root causes of why you develop a low thyroid on the first place. He will identify the various toxins that can have a direct toxic effect on the thyroid signaling system and that can adversely affect the immune system causing an auto-immune thyroid disorder. Dr. Kellman’s understanding of the gastrointestinal immune thyroid connection, has helped many patients uncover the underlying causes of their health issues.
The TRH test and Dr. Kellman’s approach to uncover the root causes of thyroid disease has changed the lives of thousands. It can change your life for the better too.
