Thyroid Management Defined
According to the American Thyroid Association, an estimated 20 million Americans have some type of thyroid disorder. Thyroid disorders are not always diagnosed or treated correctly. While medication to treat conditions such as underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) exist, patients can often continue to exhibit symptoms of thyroid disorders.
The thyroid gland, found at the front of the neck, produces hormones that regulate the body’s metabolism. These hormones play a role in the functioning of each body system.
At Vitality Medical Center, we do more than focus on the symptoms of thyroid disorders. We attempt to understand the underlying cause of thyroid conditions and provide treatment options to help patients manage these conditions.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Thyroid Management
Thyroid management therapy is guided by taking into account the unique biology of each individual. Bio-identical forms of thyroid are available as treatments for thyroid conditions. Bio-identical forms of thyroid contain the hormones that your body would produce naturally, such as T3 and T4.
We strive to help patients with thyroid disorders regain their vitality through a combination of thyroid management therapies that can focus on thyroid health with safe, ethical, research-based care.
