How to become a patient for thyroid replacement therapy.

What is the thyroid?
Thyroid Replacement Therapy Defy Medical 04

The American Thyroid Association defines the thyroid gland as the butterfly-shaped endocrine gland typically located in the lower front of the neck.

The thyroid’s job is to make thyroid hormones, which are secreted into the blood and carried throughout the body. Thyroid hormone helps the body use energy, stay warm and keep the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs working as they should.

Thyroid hormones are necessary for the health of all the cells in the body, and thyroid dysfunction is a common medical condition. Approximately 10 million Americans are likely to have hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), while as many as 10% of women may have some degree of thyroid hormone deficiency. Millions of people are hypothyroid and don't know it. 

Symptoms include fatigue, weakness, weight gain/difficulty losing weight, coarse and dry hair, hair loss, dry/rough/pale skin, cold intolerance, muscle cramps/frequent muscle aches, constipation, depression, irritability, memory loss, abnormal menstrual cycles and decreased libido.

The best therapy is personalized.

Defy Medical develops customized care plans for every patient. Eren Berber MD, The Director of Robotic Endocrine Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic, points out that there is no “cookie-cutter dosage” or treatment plan for thyroid hormone replacement therapy because the way the body absorbs hormones and the amount needed to help the body to function property varies greatly from person to person. 

Thyroid Hormone Treatment is used to replace the hormones of a thyroid gland which is not functioning normally. Many people have a thyroid gland that cannot make enough hormone, so the treatment aims to replicate normal thyroid function. 

According to the European Association of Endocrinology, “Thyroid hormone replacement has been used for more than 100 years in the treatment of hypothyroidism, and there is no doubt about its overall efficacy.” The Annals of Clinical Biochemistry adds that for the vast majority of patients, the condition is easily treatable. A September 2019 British Medical Journal retrospective cohort study of outcomes between 1995 and 2017, provides strong support for the current recommendations on the clinical management of hypothyroid patients and validates with hard evidence the latest guidelines.
