Have you had hormone health bloods performed and told that your thyroid health was normal?
You're certainly not alone.
An important piece of your hormone health puzzle is often left out- a test for thyroid antibody levels to check for autoimmunity activity.
If you have had your levels checked and they are 'in range', are heightened above the 'normal', or your health care provider hasn't checked this off yet, you'll want to pull up a seat and listen in. There's likely more to the picture that you're missing.
Thyroid antibodies are often present prior to you experiencing symptoms and are a result of an underlying inflammatory response in your body. This can lead to various symptoms of mood, energy and sleep disturbances, fertility challenges and pregnancy loss.
