Thyroid Deficiency

The thyroid gland in the neck secretes thyroid hormone, which is essential to the normal functioning of the human body.  Thyroid deficiency (an underactive thyroid gland) is a common problem, but often underdiagnosed by doctors.  Thyroid deficiency can cause fatigue, weight gain and many other symptoms.

Dr Dobie performs comprehensive blood tests to diagnose thyroid deficiency, and often uses thyroid extract (otherwise known as dessicated thyroid or Armour thyroid) to treat this illness.
