Restore Your Hormone And Feel Great Again

What Are The Symptoms For Low Thyroid (Hypothyroidism)?

Hypothyroidism Symptoms

  • Fatigue. Low thyroid function can result in less energy.

  • Cold intolerance. You may feel chilly even when others around you are comfortable.

  • Appetite loss, weight gain. With lower energy needs, you require fewer calories, so your appetite declines. Yet, you may gain a few pounds because your body converts fewer calories into energy, leaving more to be stored as fat.

  • Cardiovascular effects. Low levels of thyroid hormone can lead to high blood pressure and elevated levels of total and LDL cholesterol.

  • Mental effects. Hypothyroidism and depression share many of the same symptoms, including difficulty in concentrating, memory problems, and loss of interest in things that are normally important to you. They call for different treatments, so proper diagnosis is important.

  • Other signs and symptoms. Slowed metabolism reduces sweating, the skin’s natural moisturizer, so the skin may become dry and flaky and nails brittle. Hair may thin or become coarse. Digestive processes slow, causing constipation. Speech and movement may also slow down. Muscle aches and pain around the joints, including carpal tunnel syndrome, are common.

Hypothyroidism Treatment

Much like treating low testosterone, hypothyroidism is treated by replacing or supplementing the deficient T3 and T4 hormones with hormone medication to bring levels up and then keep them within an optimal range. We will check your TSH, free T3, free T4, reverse T3, thyroid antibodies, and other do other diagnostic tests to optimize your hormone levels.

Unlike conventional medicine where Synthroid, Levoxyl, Levothroid, and other levothyroxine products contain only a synthetic version of T4, the inactive form of thyroid hormone. Taking T4 without T3 is like replacing only 7 out of 8 spark plugs in your car’s engine. Your body’s “engine” will run, but it will never function as well as it should.

In contract, Armour Thyroid or desiccated thyroid, contains the same thyroid hormone molecules that the body produces, T3 and T4. Armour Thyroid is an FDA-approved thyroid extract that’s formulated according to the exacting standards of the United States Pharmacopoeia. Amour Thyroid and other natural thyroid medications (i.e., NP-Thyroid, Nature-Thyroid, WP Thyroid, Compounded Liothyronine/Levothyroxine Non-Porcine, etc.) are bioidentical to the thyroid hormones produced in a human body.

Bioidentical Thyroid Hormone Therapy: A Comprehensive Approach to Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Treatment

Understanding Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Disease

Hypothyroidism is a common condition characterized by an underactive thyroid gland, which results in inadequate production of thyroid hormones. Hashimoto’s disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism, wherein the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the thyroid gland, leading to inflammation and decreased thyroid function.

The Role of Thyroid Hormones (T3 and T4)

Thyroid hormones, including triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), play a crucial role in regulating metabolism, energy production, body temperature, and other vital functions. When thyroid hormone levels are low, individuals may experience symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, and cognitive impairment.

Bioidentical Thyroid Hormone Therapy

Bioidentical thyroid hormone therapy involves using synthetic or compounded thyroid hormones that are identical in structure to those naturally produced by the thyroid gland. Unlike traditional synthetic thyroid medications, which often contain only T4 hormone (levothyroxine), bioidentical thyroid hormone therapy may include a combination of T3 and T4 hormones to better mimic the body’s natural hormone production.

Benefits of Bioidentical Thyroid Hormone Therapy:

  1. Optimal Hormone Balance: Bioidentical thyroid hormone therapy aims to restore thyroid hormone levels to optimal ranges, alleviating symptoms of hypothyroidism and improving overall well-being.

  2. Individualized Treatment: Each patient’s hormone needs are unique, and bioidentical thyroid hormone therapy allows for personalized treatment based on factors such as age, sex, weight, and underlying health conditions.

  3. Improved Symptom Management: By providing both T3 and T4 hormones, bioidentical thyroid hormone therapy may offer more comprehensive symptom relief compared to T4-only medications, particularly for individuals with difficulty converting T4 to T3.

Is Bioidentical Thyroid Hormone Therapy Right for You?

If you’ve been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s disease, or other low thyroid conditions, bioidentical thyroid hormone therapy may be a suitable treatment option. However, it’s essential to discuss your symptoms, medical history, and treatment preferences with a qualified healthcare provider to determine the most appropriate approach for you.
