What Is Thyroid Hormone Treatment?
Thyroid issues are common for both men and women. If you’re experiencing symptoms such as puffiness in your face or unexplained weight gain, it could be a thyroid that’s out of whack. Luckily, thyroid hormone treatment (THT) can help reduce the symptoms of hypothyroidism and get you back to feeling your best.
Symptoms of Thyroid Issues in Men & Women
Hypothyroidism occurs when your thyroid stops making enough of the hormones your body needs to work properly. Although hypothyroidism is completely treatable, it comes with a wide range of symptoms that can diminish your quality of life.
For men, symptoms may include thinning hair or baldness, joint pain, memory problems, fatigue and even dry or coarse skin. You may also suffer from depression or may even notice an enlarged thyroid.
For women, symptoms may include thinning hair, heavier-than-normal menstrual periods, depression, fatigue, unexplained weight gain and even constipation.
To determine if hypothyroidism might be the cause of your symptoms, your doctor can run some lab tests to check your hormone levels. If low hormone levels due to hypothyroidism are the cause, thyroid hormone treatment (THT) can help.
What Is Thyroid Hormone Treatment (THT)?
In THT, you’ll be given hormones to help make up for the deficiencies within your body. THT is most commonly taken in pill form once a day. However, we’ll determine the best treatment plan for you based on your unique needs, symptoms and hormone levels.
What Can THT Do for You?
Most of the patients who undergo thyroid hormone treatment at Balance report a great reduction or complete elimination of their symptoms. For example, THT can result in:
- Weight loss
- Improved energy
- Improved mood
- Improved immune system
- Hair loss reversal
Here at Balance Hormone Center, we use bioidentical hormones in our thyroid therapy instead of synthetic hormones. Why? Bioidentical hormones are naturally occurring in the body and include both T3 and T4 hormones for the best results.
Before we administer any therapy, we’ll get to know your unique symptoms and health goals. We’ll then tailor a treatment plan to fit your needs.
