If you already have an established diagnosis of hypothyroidism you will benefit from easy access to a specialized thyroid care team. No one likes the discomfort, stress, and anxiety of having fatigue, depression, or other thyroid symptoms. Having your own dedicated thyroid care team will provide you with the assurance that your well being is the number one priority, that your questions will be answered, and that your symptoms will be diagnosed and treated by a team of US-based, board-certified, thyroid specialists (including endocrinologists and functional medicine doctors).
We believe the way you feel is more important than your lab numbers.
We believe the thyroid gland is one of the most important contributors to your wellbeing and if not closely monitored can make you feel at best, "not your best" and at worst, worn out, depressed, struggling with weight, unable to function well at your work, and stressed about all of this.
And because of this, we have created the most complete test kit that you can take at home, we've hired the best doctors to help treat and stay on top of your hypothyroidism in addition to health coaches to help you with holistic approaches to your health - from the best diet, to managing stress, to the right exercise to help maintain your best thyroid health.
