Thyroid problems have been increasingly common in America today. Most women have either experienced them directly or know someone who has. They are familiar with the symptoms—problems such as:
- Fatigue and tiredness
- Unexplained weight gain
- Puffy face
- Increased sensitivity to cold
- Thinning hair
- Heavier-than-normal menstrual periods
- Depressed mood
Hypothyroidism & THT
If you have experienced any of these symptoms, it is a good idea to have your thyroid checked. Your thyroid may have quit making the hormones your body needs to run properly and for you to feel happy and healthy. (This is called hypothyroidism.)
The good news is that hypothyroidism is treatable. There are several ways that healthcare providers choose to do it, but thyroid hormone treatment (THT) is considered by many to be one of the most effective.
What is THT? In this treatment, the patient is given hormones to help make up for the deficiency. Patients who receive hormones from the Balance Hormone Center often report great reduction in or elimination of the symptoms they are experiencing.
Bioidentical Thyroid vs. Synthetic Thyroid Therapy
There is constant debate in the medical field about whether bioidentical thyroid or synthetic thyroid therapy is better for patients. At Balance Hormone Center, it is our belief that bioidentical is best for most patients, and here's why:
- It's naturally occurring.
- It includes both T3 and T4 thyroid hormones (synthetic only includes T4).
But here's what makes Balance Hormone Center stand out from the crowd. We never prescribe a treatment to a patient that we do not believe will provide any benefit. So if we determine after a full thyroid workup that bioidentical thyroid treatment is not right for you, we will let you know. And we will then discuss other treatment options we can pursue.
