Whether there are high, average, or low levels of thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s, euthyroid, hypothyroidism), most patients complain of hypothyroidism-like symptoms than any other type of thyroid problems. Hypothyroidism is commonly under-diagnosed and under-treated. This is because conventional doctors and physicians believe that these patients are healthy as long as their hormone levels (specifically thyroid stimulating hormone “TSH”) are just within the so-called “conventional” boundaries of laboratory reference ranges.
Our functional medicine physicians think otherwise because they don’t want patient’s levels to just be “within the reference ranges”; they want their hormone levels to be optimal. In addition, it is merely impossible to make an accurate diagnosis on a patient just obtaining TSH values. To have valid overview of a patient’s thyroid function, the physician must test for thyroid stimulating hormone “TSH”, Free T3, Free T4, thyroid peroxidase, and thyroid antibodies. They are all interrelated and provide a definitive look at what is actually going on with the patient current health status.
At Hormone Replacement Miami, one of our specialized physicians will monitor the administration of this thyroid treatment through patients ongoing feedback in conjunction with blood work analysis. We repeat this process until symptoms subside and we restore balance in the patient’s mind & body. All of this will be determined in detail by one of our HRT doctors and based on your blood work results.
With our personalized Thyroid treatments in Miami, our male patients report an improvement in many or all of these areas over time.
