Dr. Qadir has personal experience with thyroid disease, so she understands how each and every symptom you’re dealing with can interfere with your quality of life. It’s for this reason that she offers extensive testing that allows her to assess your current state of health. The tests given differ for each person, as no two situations (even for those experiencing the same symptoms) are ever the exact same.
From the function of the liver to the condition of the immune system, Dr. Qadir looks at every system in the body that could be contributing to your symptoms and a dysfunctional thyroid. This goes far beyond the typical TSH testing that most people are used to. This is important because all of the systems in the body work together, and the thyroid plays a major role in each one of them working properly. If the thyroid doesn’t work, nothing works.
With the results from the labs that are provided, it will be clear which underlying issues are contributing to your symptoms. For most patients, this is when they experience a sense of clarity, as their suspicions are finally validated. It’s also at this point when it becomes clear how crucial an integrative approach is, as conventional medicine has failed to help them in the past.
