Beauty Tips with Dr. Burkenstock: Thyroid health

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – If you’re tired, gaining weight, fatigued and moody, don’t assume you’re depressed.

Dr. Kelly Burkenstock of Skin Body Health in Metairie and Mandeville says that it could very well be your thyroid, which will also make you gain weight.

“Part of our Dare to Be Thin program is looking at your T3, T4, as well as other vitamins and minerals. Because if there is a thyroid deficiency or sluggishness, when we correct, that, it reboots and gets your metabolism back on track to help you lose weight,” she explains.
