The Truth About Thyroid

Thyroid Hormone Therapy

Have you noticed you have become more sluggish and forgetful? Are you frustrated about feeling unlike yourself or less than your best? You may be experiencing an issue with your thyroid. Most people have a thyroid that is functioning lower than normal, but they do not even know it! Thyroid hormone therapy can help restore and stabilize levels of hormones related to thyroid function. Learn more during a consultation with our team at Medical Aesthetics of New England.

What Is Thyroid Hormone Therapy?

Thyroid hormone therapy is a treatment option that helps restore balance to your hormone health. Your thyroid is essential to helping cells function, but it is very common to have a thyroid with a below-normal functioning thyroid. If your thyroid is considered to be low functioning, this means it is not secreting or producing hormones as it normally should.

Common signs of a thyroid that is functioning below a normal level include:

  • Anxiety
  • Brain fog
  • Constantly feeling cold
  • Fatigue
  • Low tolerance for other people
  • Thinning hair

Thyroid hormone therapy can also be used to stabilize a high functioning thyroid, which is commonly indicated by:

  • Brittle hair
  • Constantly feeling hot
  • Experiencing heart palpitations or a racing heart
  • Feeling jittery

What Could I Expect from Treatment?

Thyroid hormone therapy is typically administered via an oral pill. It may be prescribed in addition to a traditional bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plan. Our team will help create the individualized treatment plan that is best for you.

Results will likely be shown gradually, and it is important to remember they will vary for each person. Choosing thyroid hormone therapy may help normalize your metabolism, but it is best to compensate for the hormones your thyroid glands secrete. Treatment is intended to help enhance your overall health and stabilize your thyroid function.

Am I a Good Candidate?

A consultation is essential to determining if thyroid hormone therapy is right for you. During a consultation, our team will take into account the symptoms you are experiencing as well as the results of a blood test to make a proper recommendation for you.

It is important to understand using thyroid hormone therapy is not intended to be used as a weight loss treatment. These hormones do not necessarily cause weight loss, but they may help you feel your best and enhance your overall wellness. In fact, they may even be the motivation you need to pursue a healthy diet and regular exercise!
