~Using Bioidentical Hormones to Alleviate Thyroid Symptoms~
Thyroid symptoms occur when the levels of thyroid hormones in the body are out of balance (a thyroid hormone imbalance). Thyroid hormone imbalances are classified into two types:
1.) Hypothyroidism- levels of thyroid hormones are too low
2.) Hyperthyroidism- levels of thyroid hormones are too high
When the level of thyroid hormones is too low, the thyroid hormone imbalance is known as hypothyroidism. When the body produces an excessive amount of the thyroid hormone, the condition is referred to as hyperthyroidism. Low levels of thyroid hormones (hypothyroidism) are more common than excessively high levels (hyperthyroidism).
The Thyroid Symptoms People Encounter due to a Thyroid Hormonal Imbalance
Thyroid symptoms due to a thyroid hormonal imbalance vary depending on the severity of the deficiency or excess. If the thyroid hormone is slightly low, symptoms may be mild, but if the levels are very low, symptoms can be severe. Some thyroid symptoms of low levels of the thyroid hormone may include fatigue, dry hair and skin, inability to tolerate cold, constipation, depression, irritability, decrease in sex drive and weight gain or a difficulty in losing weight.
We Use Bioidentical Hormones to balance with Thyroid Symptoms
At our practice, we take a comprehensive and balanced approach to diagnosing and treating thyroid symptoms and thyroid hormonal imbalances. The first step in the process is to perform a thorough examination that includes a detailed medical history. A comprehensive laboratory evaluation of the hormone levels in the body is taken to determine the levels of thyroid hormone and others, such as progesterone, or adrenal hormones which are often linked to thyroid problems.
Once we have determined the problems related to the thyroid hormone levels and thyroid symptoms, we create a comprehensive treatment plan designed specifically for the needs of each individual patient. This would include bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which uses hormones that work in the body in the same way as natural hormones produced by the body. In addition, we offer services to help with issues related to thyroid symptoms, such as weight problems.
