Are Your Metabolic Brakes On!By Dr. Greg Fors
Does it feel like something has slammed on the brakes to your bodys metabolism? No matter what you do you can't get going, lose weight or youre fatigued and cold. Your skin and hair is dry and thinning. Youre constipated, have a low sexual desire and may feel depressed. You're sure there's got to be a physical explanation for all of this but your doctor tells you your tests are all within normal limits Perhaps youve heard that your thyroid might be the problem, so you get the doctor to run tests for this but again the doctor says your TSH levels are fi ne, but dont worry lets try Cymbalta. But you are worried, because this is not the life you had planned for yourself. You do not want to live your life as if you have a foot on the accelerator and the brake at the same time. OK, stay with me on this. To understand what's going on you are going to have to put a thinking cap on and apply a little brain power. It might be that the brake pedal to your metabolism is slammed to the fl oor boards, and no one is looking deep enough to discover it. What you hear about the thyroid is correct; it truly does have a major infl uence on your metabolism and your overall health. In fact, every cell in your body has a receptor for the active thyroid hormone, T3. If your doctor had found that your TSH levels were abnormally high, meaning your thyroid was under active, you may already be on a synthetic thyroid medication known as Synthroid or levothyroxine. Lets cross some Ts and look at how these and other things in your life affect the thyroid. The drug Synthroid is actually T4, similar to the T4 your thyroid produces. The problem is, T4, whether produced by your thyroid or taken orally is not biologically active, so your liver must convert it into the biologically active T-3. This active T-3 is the accelerator to your metabolic engine. At the same time, your liver also creates a hormone called Reverse T-3 which is the biological brake to your metabolism. You need a proper balance of both active T-3 and Reverse T-3 for optimal metabolism (not too fast and not too slow). However, whenever you are emotionally, physically, or biologically stressed, such as being chronically ill or recovering from surgery or a car accident you produce more Reverse T-3. If you are diabetic, aging, or taking drugs like beta blockers you produce more Reverse T-3. Also, if you are taking T4, Synthroid, or levothyroxine and your body cannot properly convert it to the active T-3 it may be converting into excess Reverse T-3. Point is, whenever Reverse T-3 is elevated it acts as a brake. This blocks the accelerator active T-3 from binding to your cells and doing its job, thus you end up with more foot on the brake than on the accelerator. Lets continue In this situation you can develop many or all of the symptoms of hypothyroidism while your TSH levels and T4 levels will almost always show to be within normal limits. This is a problem in that the only tests that are typically used to diagnose a thyroid issue are TSH or possibly T4, thus the condition of having Reverse T3 syndrome is never properly diagnosed by your doctor! To properly understand and diagnose your condition a knowledgeable doctor must run at least eight different thyroid tests TSH, total T4, free T4, total T-3, free T3, reverse T-3, and calculate the reverse T-3 and total T-3 ratio. Along with this, thyroid antibody tests must be run to determine if you have the most common cause of thyroid dysfunction, the autoimmune disorder known as Hashimoto's disease. Over time, Hashimoto's disease destroys your thyroid and generally elevates reverse T-3 levels giving you a double whammy. The cause and proper diagnosis of this disabling Reverse T-3 syndrome and/or Hashimoto's disease will be the subject matter of my upcoming seminars. I will also discuss how you can conquer this baffl ing health problem. Please, attend one of my upcoming FREE SEMINARS! These seminars will be held Monday, February 27th and Wednesday, March 7th 7:00 to 8:00 PM at the Pain and Brain Healing Center and Monday, March 12th 6:30 PM at Northtown library.
