What’s the deal with Thyroid??
What does our Thyroid even do??
Our thyroid controls the metabolism of our cells. This has a big impact on our energy levels, motivation, and low levels can contribute to brain fog. A healthy thyroid helps all of our cells to function better and to keep our body running smoothly.
HyPOthyroidism (too little thyroid hormone)
- Weight Gain
- Brain Fog
- Mood Swings
- Cold Extremities
How we help
We treat hypothyroidism with a bioidentical hormone compound that is identical to the T3 & T4 that our body produces. Our patients often see results the first week but typically see results within the first 3 weeks and continue to see improvements for some time.
HyPERthyroidism (too much thyroid hormone)
- nervousness, anxiety and irritability.
- hyperactivity – you may find it hard to stay still and have a lot of nervous energy.
- difficulty sleeping.
- sensitivity to heat.
Treating hyperthyroidism is often a little bit more intrusive than hormone therapy. If you suspect you might have hyperthyroidism, we recommend you visit your primary care or an endocrinologist to get a diagnosis and receive treatment.
Bioidentical Thyroid vs Synthroid
Understanding our Thyroid is important to our overall health. We recommend that everyone that is experiencing symptoms of hypothyroidism get their labs drawn to get a better picture of their health and what potential solutions there may be.
