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.
The blood tests ordered by many doctors are inadequate for diagnosing this condition. Dr Dobie performs comprehensive thyroid blood testing and treats many patients with this disorder.
