Episode Summary

Several years after struggling with the mismanagement of hypothyroidism, McCall McPherson finally discovered how to manage her condition to enhance her daily living. Now, as a thyroid practitioner and an advocate for thyroid care, she helps women with low-thyroid function live their best lives. 

So often thyroid conditions get overlooked because the proper labs aren’t being drawn, and the right diagnoses aren’t being made. Plus, many women who struggle with thyroid issues have been given mixed information on the appropriate and available management methods. 

In this podcast, McCall McPherson sets the record straight and answers your questions about thyroid function– including some that you didn’t even know you needed! We’ll discuss hypothyroidism symptoms, and what labs you should be getting annually to check your thyroid function. Then we dive into treatments like Levothyroxine and Armour, lifestyle changes, symptom management tips, and more. 

It’s so important to be an advocate for your health and work with a provider that you trust. McCall talks about making sure to work with a doctor who wants to partner with you. It’s YOUR body, and it’s YOUR health. So knowing the best ways to take care of it is essential. 

McCall is so passionate about perfecting thyroid treatment, especially after her own struggles. So now she lives, breathes, and thrives in understanding the nuances of proper thyroid care.

McCall Mcpherson is the founder of Modern Thyroid Clinic, a thyroid-centered functional medicine practice in Austin, Texas. She is also the owner and chief of Thyroid Nation. She’s a physician’s assistant, a TEDx speaker, and an expert in thyroid health having been a thyroid patient herself. 


“Eventually I found my way to an integrated medicine doctor… And he really honestly gave me my life back in two months. I was a completely different person. I tell my patients this often– I think by now I would be on disability if he hadn’t given me my life back.”

“From that, Modern Thyroid Clinic was born, and now I get to serve and give back to these women. It’s wonderful for them because I get to change their lives, but it’s also wonderful for me because I get to change their lives

“I estimate 30% to up to 50% of my patients have been told by a doctor before they see me that they’re just depressed. And that’s the reason why they have all of this fatigue and brain fog. And really with hypothyroidism, one of the classic symptoms is depression.” 

“The goal is: I want to give you more energy, more capacity, and the ability to function at a higher level. And then you take that energy in the capacity and you build more from it.” 

“It works fast, it gives you more energy, it speeds up your metabolism, then you can improve your lifestyle, you can eat better, you can go for walks. You can do all these other sequential things that will improve your quality of life and health.”

    I am post menopausal and have had issues for years. I wish I had known all these things. I have been on a very restricted diet for years but still can’t get my labs to be good. It’s just so frustrating because I have had to pay for most of the labs out of pocket because insurance doesn’t pay for them. I have referred several friends to you.
