Near-Infrared Light Therapy Helpful for Hashimoto's Hypothyroid

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Mar 08, 2022

Several studies have shown profound benefits of photobiomodulation for autoimmune hypothyroidism

  • A recent 2013 randomized, placebo-controlled study in hypothyroid patients demonstrated that in people who got near-infrared light therapy, thyroid function dramatically improved, and remarkably, that thyroid antibody (TPOAb) levels were massively reduced. Amazingly, 47% of patients were able to stop medication completely! Moreover, the researchers also followed up 9 months after treatment and found that the effects were still evident! https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10103-012-1129-9

  • They even published a 6-year follow-up, which basically said that even at 6 years, some of the benefits still remained, but periodic sessions were recommended to maintain all benefits. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6247385/

    • "The levothyroxine dose required by group L was significantly lower than that required by group P (P = 0 002). The anti-TPO and anti-Tg levels did not differ between the groups. Conclusion. LLLT, by the methods described, has been shown to be safe for the treatment of hypothyroidism resulting from CAT" (CAT = Chronic Autoimmune Thyroid)

    • (It is NOT suggested to use red/NIR light as a one-time treatment that is expected to last long-term. For optimal benefits, most research indicates that sessions be done with red/NIR therapy at least once a week consistently.)

Important Information about TSH - What Your Doctor Should Know

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Feb 02, 2021

Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is the hormone produced by your pituitary gland to control the function of your thyroid gland. A high TSH means your pituitary senses that your thyroid is underactive.

Traditional Lab Tests Can Be Deceiving 

Many labs are misleading physicians by using outdated ranges of normal for TSH, thus preventing doctors from giving their patients the most effective thyroid treatment they need.

TSH: What Your Doctor Should Know

TSH: What Your Doctor Should Know

Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is the hormone produced by your pituitary gland to control the function of your thyroid gland. A high TSH means your pituitary senses that your thyroid is underactive.

 

Many labs are misleading physicians by using outdated ranges of normal for TSH, thus preventing doctors from giving their patients the most effective thyroid treatment they need. 

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III)  demonstrated that the mean TSH in apparently normal, healthy participants is 1.4 uIU/mL.

Based upon the results of NHANES III, The National Academy for Clinical Biochemistry has recommended since 2002 that a serum TSH level between 0.5-2.0 uIU/mL be considered the optimal therapeutic target for replacement treatment of hypothyroidism.
