Thyroid Beginner series #3!

This video will walk you through the basics of T4.

T4 is 3 things in one. It’s a medication, it’s a hormone and it’s a lab test.

Medications that contain T4 include levothyroxine, Synthroid, and Tirosint.

You can test for T4 by checking your free T4 levels in the blood.

The T4 hormone, under normal conditions, is secreted by your thyroid gland and 80% of all thyroid hormone you produce naturally is T4.

T4 is, therefore, the most abundant thyroid hormone that your body produces which makes it critical to understand!

Hey guys!

I’m Dr. Westin Childs and I focus on thyroid health, hormone balance, and weight loss. I write about thyroid disorders, weight loss, insulin resistance, estrogen/progesterone balance on my blog. I truly believe that hormone balance is the key to managing your weight, your mood and your quality of life which is why I’m so passionate about it.

I take a personalized/functional medicine approach to management of conditions. I’m not accepting patients but you can learn more and get plenty of information on my blog!
