Thyroid Therapy in NYC

Thyroid Therapy in NYC

Thyroid disease remains undiagnosed and thus untreated much more than it should. Why is it such an issue? Laboratories have been lowering the acceptable range for Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), the regulatory pituitary feedback response to the circulating thyroid hormone. But if TSH is solely relied upon, the patient can be wrongly diagnosed as not being hypothyroid. T4 is being constantly converted to T3.

The most active thyroid hormone in the body is T3. T4 has to be converted to T3 in order to maintain adequate T3 levels. But when someone has other hormonal imbalances, is very overweight, on or has been on very low-calorie diets, is very stressed or chronically ill there is an impaired conversion of T4 to T3. Because of its short half-life blood tests are often not telltale. Sometimes the receptors don’t respond to normal levels of thyroid – even if replacement is given.

Bioidentical Thyroid can make such a difference in treating the following symptoms:

  • Stubborn weight gain
  • Decreased metabolic rate
  • Thinning hair and nails
  • Dry skin
  • Thin eyebrows
  • Hoarseness
  • Too tired to exercise
  • Cold hands
  • Feeling cold all the time
  • Ankle swelling
  • Brain fog
  • Muscle aches

Many patients may be on thyroid replacement but still have untreated hypothyroidism.
