Do you suffer from any of the following symptoms?
If any of these symptoms describe you, visit Dr. Arem at the Texas Thyroid Institute today!
Hello. I have only been a patient of yours for a brief time, about a year or so now. After several visits with you and now, reading your amazing book, The Thyroid Solution, I can’t help but feel God is totally in this whole process! I am sure many of your patients have the same or similar stories as I, and some how acknowledge the depth of your skills and some who may not. But clearly, I am one of those patients who have been moved “to the point of tears” not only because of your knowledge and education, but because of the sensitivity and compassion that runs so deeply within your spirit and purpose, and the passion that makes it all come together for the benefit of others…others like me. Also, after reading your heartwarming and inspirational dedication message — your dedication to your own family at the beginning of The Thyroid Solution, I knew I had come to the right place.
I don’t know how often people exhibit their appreciation in the sea of patients you treat, but I want you to know that I appreciate all that you do so very much. Your understanding of the human body, the human mind, and their intricacies and delicate artistry is nothing short of a blessing to so many, and I am thankful that the blessing has also been offered to me so that I, too, may move forward in hope and healing.
Dr. Arem, I do thank God, and I thank you and your staff for the wonderful balance I know it takes to run such a dynamic, yet down to earth and compassionate institute as The Thyroid Institute. My appreciation runs heartfelt and I thank you for the endless work and dedication you provide for the sake of “…loving and helping others.”
With warm appreciation,

I am a 44 year old woman who has been experiencing a lot of symptoms that no one could really pin-point the cause of since I was about 28 years old. I went from doctor to doctor looking for the answers to the symptoms I felt. Years passed by and I felt worse and worse. All of my blood work came out normal, including the standard thyroid blood test. The problems that I was having were generally low energy, feeling fatigued, exhausted, and very, very sleepy. I would have feelings of restlessness even after a good nights sleep. I was obviously very depressed about the way I was feeling, so I had no motivation whatsoever and would have to drag myself around to do things. I had two children so I had to do what I had to do. My confidence started eroding and I was experiencing a lot of moodiness, feelings of insufficiency and constant sadness. In terms of memory, this is one thing I really struggled with, and was getting worse and worse. I was not able to grasp details, like I had brain fog. I could not keep up with schedules. I really felt strange in my own body. I had problems following instructions, expressing myself, and even finding words to communicate what I was wanting to say. I was not even able to describe something that I had read or heard. I couldn’t remember names, places, or events. I couldn’t concentrate, so I saw this as poor job performance. Physically I felt bad. I would have shortness of breath with minimal exertion – so, basically, this is what I experienced for many years and was usually treated for depression with the usual anti-depressants.
Finally, one day after doing a lot of searching, I found The Thyroid Solution, and as I read it I was really amazed to see myself described in this book along with all of the information that I was gathering from it and I ended up forcing myself to go to Houston to be seen by Dr. Arem. I ended up being diagnosed with low-grade hypothyroidism which made me feel relieved because I thought I was crazy about my symptoms and until now nobody could really give me any answers. I began the treatment that Dr. Arem prescribed for me. I also began taking his ThyroLife supplements and after about 3 or so weeks, I began to experience the life changing effects as Dr. Arem had told me I would. Basically in about 2 months I, as well as others, were able to see a change back to myself again. I now feel much better and have plenty of energy. I cannot express how grateful I am to have my life back.

Dr. Arem is truly a great physician. He cares about his patients and focuses on the root causes of his patient’s problems. From his line of ThyroLife vitamins, to his superb knowledge of the thyroid and its mental effects, Dr. Arem has not only helped me with thyroid imbalance, but has improved the overall quality of my life.

After reading Dr. Arem’s book, I immediately came to see him and it was the right decision to make. Since Dr. Arem has been treating my hypothyroid condition I feel so much better than I did prior to finding him. Before, even though I had been taking thyroid hormone, I NEVER felt as good as I thought I should. I felt like my physician at the time gave me “cookie-cutter” care and did not pay attention to my concerns. She should have read his book! Dr. Arem performed extensive tests to assess my condition, then treated me accordingly. He is very kind, knowledgeable, and really listened to me. I honestly feel that I am getting the best care anyone could possibly receive, and that I am a partner with him in my well-being. Thank you Dr. Arem for your excellent work!

I am a thyroid patient who came to see Dr. Arem after being misdiagnosed, and having been given twice as much thyroid medication as I should have, and I had also been put on anti-depressant and anxiety medications for panic/anxiety attacks. Doctors just don’t listen to you when you tell them something is wrong. I kept telling them this and they just kept increasing my medications and dosages. Luckily, once I saw Dr. Arem he was able to understand what I was going through, he gave me a correct diagnosis, and was able to adjust my medications to exactly what they should be. Once my thyroid was finally under control, I was able to get rid of the anti-depressants and anxiety meds, all of my symptoms began disappearing, and I am gradually shedding the 50 pounds that I seemed to have put on overnight. Thanks to Dr. Arem’s ThyroLife, I am able to get the exact nutrients needed to help me maintain my thyroid health which I had been lacking. I am feeling more vibrant and energized than ever.

I came to see Dr. Arem after some friends of my family read his book and encouraged me go see him. I had been told that I had Hashimoto’s thyroiditis but did not really realize the extent that the quality of my life had been suffering because I had become so adaptable over the years even though I was always feeling anxious, cranky and tired. Very tired. No matter how much I slept, I was exhausted. My endocrinologist encouraged me to take thyroid hormones so I did, but my hands would shake when I took it & my doctor wouldn’t acknowledge my thoughts on adjusting the dose or the medication itself so I stopped taking it altogether and told myself my symptoms weren’t that bad.
Fast forward 10 years later, my internist told me, “you don’t have thyroid problems, you’re just depressed.” I agreed that I was depressed but didn’t want to take anti-depressants. I had been on them before and knew that this was not the solution, but just a cover up. At this point I began to seek out yet another endocrinologist, told him my symptoms, and this one sent me for a thyroid ultrasound which according to him showed that I had nodules. Feeling hopeful in finding a cause, I went off to the hospital for a biopsy only to be told once I got there that a mistake had been made, and there were no nodules. Frustrated with the difficulty I was having, I began venting to some of my parents friends who immediately said, “Go see Dr. Arem, he specializes specifically in thyroid disorders and has written a very detailed book.” Even though this was exciting news to me I was far too discouraged from my previous experiences to have high hopes.
Eventually I did make an appointment to see Dr. Arem and immediately knew that I had made a mistake by waiting to do so. He was very patient, he took the time to review all of my medical history and asked me in detail about my health issues. He answered all of my questions and performed precise testing that assured I got a proper treatment plan, prescribing me the right medications in the right amounts that he has adjusted accordingly along the way.
I’ve been a patient for a while now and each time I come in, Dr. Arem patiently asks about my progress and answers all of my questions. I am now much better and have had no additional problems. The exhaustion and crankiness are gone as well. My family has noticed the change as well. Something I kept noticing when I would go for my follow-up visits was that his patients were coming in from all over the world. One woman was there from New York, two others from Kansas, and another from Mexico. All were very happy with their treatment and would never think of going anywhere else. It’s amazing what you learn just sitting in the waiting room.
The quality of my life has improved drastically and I am deeply grateful to Dr. Arem for the improvements. This was a good decision and I encourage you to do something good for yourself too!
