Thyroid Problems Q&A
Why causes thyroid problems?
The thyroid is a small gland in your throat that is responsible for producing triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) thyroid hormones. These hormones keep your body functioning optimally by regulating how it uses energy, controlling your temperature, and supporting muscle function.
A common type of thyroid problem is hypothyroidism, a condition that develops when your thyroid doesn’t produce enough hormones. Autoimmune diseases, certain medications, and thyroid surgery can increase your risk for hypothyroidism.
When should I seek treatment for thyroid problems?
When your thyroid isn’t working properly, it can cause a wide range of symptoms. For some men and women, these issues can be severe enough to interfere with your physical and mental health.
Signs that you might have hypothyroidism or other thyroid problem can include:
- Dry skin
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Poor body temperature regulation
Unfortunately, because many of these symptoms can occur with other medical conditions, thyroid problems are often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all.
The team at Envizion Medical can order blood testing to identify thyroid conditions in the early stages, so you can get the treatment you need.
They recommend scheduling a thyroid test as soon as you experience any unusual symptoms that may relate to a thyroid disorder.
How are thyroid problems treated?
The team at Envizion Medical offers thyroid hormone replacement therapy to rebalance your natural hormone levels.
They use bioidentical T3 and T4 hormones that come from plant materials and are similar to the hormones your body makes. The hormones are available in oral pills that you take every day. If you’re not good at remembering to take a pill, you may benefit from pellet therapy.
If you’re a candidate for pellet therapy, the team implants the pellet just under the surface of your skin. The pellet supplies your body with a steady stream of thyroid hormones to relieve your symptoms.
Many people find their symptoms of hypothyroidism and other thyroid problems resolve quickly after starting hormone replacement therapy. The Envizion Medical team continues to monitor your thyroid hormone levels over time to ensure you’re enjoying a high quality of life without any symptoms.
To schedule testing for symptoms of thyroid problems, call the Envizion Medical office nearest you or book a consultation online today.
