The thyroid is a very important gland in the body, and when it isn’t working, you’re going to notice. It could be that your thyroid is overactive, or it could be that you have an underactive thyroid. The latter is a lot more common than most people realize, but because the symptoms are very generalized, they’re often ignored or undiagnosed, or even worse, treated as something else entirely. Understanding what the thyroid is, what it does, and why it needs to work properly can help you determine if this is the issue and what you can do about it, if so.
The thyroid is responsible for regulating metabolism, primarily. If it can’t do that, the body is going to be tired, lack energy, struggle with immunity, and of course, have difficulty losing weight. If you think that this might be an issue that you are having, you should talk to your doctor about having tests done to determine the cause and whether thyroid hormone therapy is the right solution for you.
What Causes Thyroid Issues?
Some several different conditions and situations could result in your thyroid not being able to produce or regulate hormones effectively. There are medical conditions that can cause thyroid issues, but usually it is a general dysfunction that is the result of hormone imbalances or other issues in the body. There is even an autoimmune process that can cause the thyroid to attack itself and create problems that aren’t even there in the first place.
There are some cases where the cause is unknown, but the body just struggles to produce the right levels of T3 and T4, the important thyroid hormones. Lifelong supplementation could be difficult with synthetic medications, and bioidentical hormone therapy could prove to offer a much better solution. Of course, with the right treatment, some people might be able to avoid a lifelong issue by getting their bodies back in balance for good.
Everyone is different, so it’s less about what causes the issue and more about which is the best way to resolve it. That’s why we focus on creating the perfect hormone therapy for each patient, to ensure that they get everything that they need to get their health back on track. Creating a custom solution is the best way to address thyroid issues when you can’t determine an exact cause or you need a less targeted solution.
Signs and Symptoms to Look For
If you think that your thyroid hormones are out of balance, you will want to watch for some signs that could indicate that there’s an issue. Although everyone is different, if you have any combination of these symptoms, it might be a thyroid issue. Current testing and treatment methods aren’t perfect, which we’ll get more into below, but these are some good indicators that you may want to start the conversation about thyroid hormone therapy.
As you can see, these are pretty generalized symptoms. No wonder they often go overlooked and undiagnosed for so long. If you’re dealing with any of these, and especially more than one of them at a time, you might want to talk to your doctor about whether your thyroid could be the cause.
Why Current Testing Methods and Medications Don’t Do the Trick
Currently, there’s a lot of missing information about the thyroid and how it works, including what the available medications can do to make improvements. It is thought that many medications stimulate the thyroid hormone production in the body to help improve the body’s metabolism and other functions. However, this might not be ideal for ongoing or long-term treatment because they are simply a temporary replacement.
The current testing methods are also limited in what they can discern. Thyroid issues are one of those things that often get diagnosed last because there is really no other answer. Although advances in medical science are helping, it’s still hard to pinpoint the exact issue. This is where natural supplements and hormone therapies come into play. When you choose thyroid hormone therapy that is bioidentical, it doesn’t matter what the underlying issue is. This therapy will stimulate appropriate thyroid function regardless of what is going on.
The other issue is that most thyroid medications work best as a combination treatment, which means you’ll be taking multiple prescriptions to try to create the perfect balance. Over time, this can be tiresome and it can even lead to resistance to the drugs if you aren’t careful, among many other potential issues. It’s better to restore hormone imbalances in the most natural way possible. This allows the thyroid to be stimulated to get back to normal production on its own whenever possible so that you’re not on a lifelong treatment plan unless it’s necessary.
If these or any of the other issues associated with current medications and testing for thyroid issues aren’t working for you, contact us to discuss the alternative of bioidentical thyroid hormone therapy.
