Thyroid Health

Thyroid hormones, T4 and T3, affect nearly every cell in the body, and are crucial for maintaining a balanced metabolism. Despite how vital the thyroid hormones are, imbalances are common. Low thyroid levels, or hypothyroidism, often presents as fatigue, irritability, memory impairment, and mood changes. Other common signs are hair loss, dry skin, weight gain, and an intolerance to cold temperatures. Typical treatment is with T4, or levothyroxine (brand name Synthroid). Often this is a safe and effective treatment option for patients diagnosed with hypothyroidism. However, there are those who do not feel T4 alone adequately manages their symptoms. An alternative treatment option is compounded thyroid, which utilizes a blend of T4 and T3 to mimic physiological levels of each hormone. Compounded thyroid allows for more carefully adjusted doses based off symptoms and thyroid function tests than do commercially available thyroid preparations.
