Thyroid:

Thyroid hormones regulate our body's metabolism and influence virtually every organ system in the body. They tell organs how fast or slow they should work. Thyroid hormones also regulate the body's consumption of oxygen and production of heat. Thyroid problems, such as an overactive or underactive thyroid, can severely affect metabolism. There are several thyroid conditions you may want to be aware of. Our program includes comprehensive testing of the thyroid gland (TSH) in addition to the thyroid hormones , thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). When the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormone, the body uses energy at a slower pace than it should. This condition, underactive thyroid, is called hypothyroidism. Symptoms that may indicate hypothyroidism include:

  • dry, coarse skin and hair
  • fatigue
  • forgetfulness
  • frequent, heavy menstrual periods
  • hoarse voice
  • inability to tolerate cold
  • weight gain, specifically fat gain.
  • sleep problems

How do we treat Thyroid disorder: The goal of treatment for any thyroid disorder is to restore normal blood levels of thyroid hormone. Hypothyroidism is treated with compounded medications including Armour Thyroid, Bio-Thyroid, Levothyroxine, and liothyronine sodium . Defy's medical team uses the latest protocols and testing to determine thyroid disorder and best treatment for each patient.
