If you feel unusually sluggish, lacking in energy and motivation, and generally run down, you may be suffering from underactive thyroid or hypothyroidism. Thyroid deficiency is extremely common but often goes undetected by standard thyroid tests.
Your thyroid gland is vital to proper body functioning. It stores and produces hormones that ensure bodily growth and development, as well as regulating your body’s temperature, hydration, and most importantly your metabolism.
Women are at great risk for thyroid conditions—now more than ever. Thyroid disorders are becoming more common in the U.S. More than 10 million Americans are currently diagnosed with thyroid disorders, and it is believed another 13 million Americans suffer with undiagnosed thyroid issues.
Some thyroid conditions are more difficult to diagnose while others are more difficult to treat. Working with medical practitioners at a hormone clinic that specializes in thyroid disorders, such as Revitalize Alabama Medical Clinic, is essential to you living a better quality of life.
Most practitioners prescribe synthetic T4 for their hypothyroid patients. This may work for some patients; however, this approach is unsuitable for patients who have trouble converting T4 into T3 or have a high level of inactive T3. Most patients feel better when both T4 and T3 are replaced.
Often when patients use synthetic medications such as synthroid/levothyroxine T4, their blood work comes back in the correct range but they have all the symptoms. By using the natural form you get the active hormone T3, which helps the thyroid and relieves the symptoms so the body can lose weight.
Revitalize Alabama practitioners specialize in thyroid treatment using a natural thyroid medication. Our practitioners create an individualized prescription which is then filled by our compounding pharmacy.
Most women will need to supplement their hormones for the rest of their life because there is no cure for hypothyroidism. When determining whether you want to use hormone replacement therapy to treat your underactive thyroid, consider the effects on your daily life. If your thyroid condition makes your daily life difficult or less successful, then hormone replacement therapy for the condition can bring fast relief.
