What Thin Eyebrows Might be Telling you....




If the outer half of or tail end of your eyebrow is thinning this could mean your thyroid function may not be optimal.



Other signs of thyroid imbalance include:

  • fatigue

  • hair loss

  • constipation or diarrhea

  • dry skin

  • feeling cold or feeling hot

  • puffiness

  • dry skin

  • weight gain or weight loss

  • anxiety

  • difficult sleep

  • tightness in your throat

  • heart palpitations

  • mood swings


Testing Thyroid Stimulating Hormone or TSH alone may not be enough to uncover a thyroid condition.


If you have some of these thyroid symptoms you may want to consider getting a full thyroid panel.

These additional blood markers could include:

  • Free T3

  • Free T4

  • T3

  • Reverse T3

  • Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody

  • Thyroglobulin Antibody


Completing a full thyroid panel is usually part of lab testing when your Naturopathic Doctor suspects thyroid imbalance.


In my practice it is common for my patients to come in with a TSH value within a normal range but still feel many of these thyroid imbalance symptoms. It's often when we check for the antibody levels that we find the source of the imbalance.


Consider having this discussion with your healthcare provider if this seems fitting for your current symptoms.
