In this episode, Nicole discusses why it’s important to understand and track your thyroid antibodies, the difference between Hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, why it’s impossible to compare your results to somebody else’s, and the holistic changes you can make to manage your thyroid health for the future.
