Thyroid Hormone Balancing Q & A

What does the thyroid do?

The thyroid is an essential endocrine gland located in the front of a person’s neck. It produces and stores the hormones responsible for the function of almost every organ in the human body. The thyroid hormone regulates metabolic rate, growth, development and body temperature of an individual. A dysfunctional thyroid can affect a person’s mood, his or her metabolism, sex drive and ability to gain or lose weight.

What happens when the hormones are imbalanced?

When the thyroid hormones are out of balance, many symptoms can occur. This will depend on whether the thyroid is overproducing or underproducing hormones. Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, can also cause symptoms of missed periods, constipation, dry skin, low libido, and hair thinning.  

What is done during a thyroid evaluation?

There can be a variety of indications that the thyroid is not working as it should. During an assessment of the thyroid, Alpha Health Care runs detailed blood tests and a thorough interview to determine thyroid problems. Then our team of medical professionals designs a treatment program specific to you. External signs also checked include:

  • Loss of hair
  • Excessive weight gain
  • Jaundiced or yellow-looking skin
  • Tremors or shaky hands
  • Excited or jerky movements
  • Edemas or swelling
  • Slowed down movements and speech

How is the thyroid hormone balanced?

Medication is usually the first step in the treatment of thyroid disease. Both over or under active thyroids can benefit from supplementary thyroid hormones or drugs to suppress the production levels. Your specific needs have been determined, and our doctors design a customized program. We provide a range of FDA approved therapies for hormone balancing, thyroid, and testosterone adjustments. We also provide a follow-up program to ensure that you are successful with your treatments.
