Don't Overlook This Cardiac Killer.
Sublinical Thyroid Dysfunction Scantily Screened. questionmark
According to a study of a half a million subjects presented to the European Congress on Endocrinology, subclinical hyperthyroidism is associated with a 20% increased risk for cardiovascular mortality, primarily driven by heart-failure deaths. Hyperthyroid, not to be confused withhypothyroid, is an overtly active thyroid, whereas hypothyroid is underactive.
While primary-care doctors and family practitioners are becoming mindful of this issue, awareness is still woeful.
An overactive thyroid is far less common than hypothyroidism, affecting 1.3% of the population (versus 4.6% for hypothyroidism). While hyperthyroidism can lead to cardiovascular problems, it actually reduces cholesterol levels, which is why it is so often overlooked.
Hypothyroidism, on the other hand, increases cholesterol levels, which is why it is diagnosed more often, but still not enough. A recent study found that in patients with high cholesterol, only 50% were screened for subclinical thyroid dysfunction. Although guidelines state that thyroid dysfunction should be included in the diagnosis for new-onset dyslipidemia, the practice of screening in standard clinical practice seems to often be overlooked.
The take-home message is that if you have a family history with any thyroid problem or have any signs of thyroid problems, you should go for a checkup. Family doctors need to be aware that any sign of thyroid abnormality can affect your health, and you should act accordingly.

EPIC BAR: Putting the P in Paleo

EPICBarFor those of you who know us well, we have never been big fans of energy and snack bars. Admittedly, they are sometimes a necessary evil. 


We are happy to say that we have found a product that not only has real ingredients, but is balanced with lean protein, healthy fat, and low carb.




EPIC Bar comes in bison, beef, and turkey flavors. We like the bison and turkey the best. The bison is grass-fed, the beef is organic, and the turkey is humanely raised without antibiotics or hormones.


Go to to find them in your area or you can order them from our office (stop in or call; not available at our website yet).

Menopause Not "One Size Fits All".

One of the perks of being a NCI Well Connect subscriber is that you are granted monthly access to our Action Plan Library (27 plans with a total value over $200) and Special Reports. 


The perk comes in handy when you are trying to address menopausal symptoms. A study in the May issue of Menopause suggests that a single approach to managing menopausal symptoms is likely to be unsuccessful.

You can find which one(s) are best suited for you.
