When assessing thyroid function, I advocate for a multi-faceted approach that includes thyroid blood tests, at-home assessments using pulse rate and body temperature, and a thorough evaluation of symptoms. This comprehensive method is crucial for the accurate detection and management of hypothyroidism, as emphasized by Dr. Ray Peat.

My book “Test Your Thyroid Function,” comprehensively covers Dr. Ray Peat’s approach to thyroid testing and the detection of hypothyroidism.

This step-by-step guide is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to accurately identify hypothyroidism and proactively manage their thyroid health. It’s a must-read for individuals suspecting thyroid issues, and those on thyroid medication wanting to assess treatment effectiveness.
