Millions have been suffering...while their thyroid disease remains undiagnosed.
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 26, 2010
Patients Medical, a leading integrative medical center in New York City, will offer an informational webinar on Thursday, August 19th, 2010 at 6:30pm Eastern Standard Time, led by medical director and founder Rashmi Gulati, MD. Dr. Gulati will explain recent advances in diagnostic tools and holistic treatment options for those who live with thyroid disease. The webinar is free and open to the public for those who register for the event.
“Too many people are suffering because of thyroid disease. They deserve to know the truth about their health,” states Dr. Gulati. Approximately twenty-seven million Americans are affected by a thyroid disease. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) estimates that over half of those affected remain undiagnosed. Thyroid imbalance far surpasses diabetes as the most common endocrine disorder in the US.
“Millions have been suffering from fatigue, obesity, rollercoaster weight issues, hair loss, and depression for years while their thyroid disease remains undiagnosed. Specialized thyroid tests such as the Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone (TRH) test are vastly under-utilized in many medical practices and can be used along-side the more common Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) test to get a more accurate representation of a patient’s thyroid health,” explains Dr. Gulati.
“As the master gland, the thyroid influences many other critical hormones. If the thyroid is out of balance then many other systems suffer as well,” says Dr. Gulati, “When we look at the body as a whole and address the underlying cause of symptoms, we can prevent further illness and create wellness.” By addressing nutritional and hormonal imbalances, lifestyle practices such as stress-relief and exercise, and a variety of other factors, Dr. Gulati has guided her patients towards symptom relief, and more importantly, greater overall health.
Recent advances in medicine combined with patients’ demand for a more natural and holistic approach to treatments has led Dr. Gulati and her staff at Patients Medical to develop protocols that go beyond synthetic drugs for those diagnosed with hypothyroid or hyperthyroid conditions. Treatment plans may include custom-compounded thyroid hormone prescriptions, nutritional and herbal supplements to support thyroid function, and dietary therapy.
With over a decade of experience, Dr. Rashmi Gulati is a leader in internal and integrative medicine, having appeared as a medical expert on Good Morning America, CNN, and WCBS in addition to a variety of national publications, speaking about thyroid disease, hormonal health and holistic medicine.
