How Bioidentical Hormones Can Treat Your Hypothyroidism

Nearly 5% of Americans are living with hypothyroidism. This condition occurs when your thyroid gland doesn’t create enough of the essential hormones you need to function normally. While the signs are generally mild in the beginning, this condition often worsens and can make everyday life more challenging. 

Are you looking to feel your best again? At Nexclin Medicine, with three locations in Georgia, we offer bioidentical hormones as a way to restore your hormones to optimal levels again.

Why hypothyroidism occurs

A butterfly-shaped gland, your thyroid is located in your neck right below your Adam’s apple. The gland has a very important job of controlling your metabolism along with vital functions like your heart rate, muscle strength, and body temperature. As part of your endocrine system, your thyroid uses iodine from your diet to produce two hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). 

When your body doesn’t produce enough of the T3 and T4 hormones, hypothyroidism occurs. This throws off the chemical balances in your body and creates problems in everything from metabolic rate to organ system control. In an effort to make up for the lack of hormones, your thyroid may grow larger in what is called a goiter. 

Signs to look for

Many people who suffer from hypothyroidism have no idea they have it. That’s because, in its early stages, the symptoms aren’t noticeable or can be easily attributed to the aging process. 

Fatigue and weight gain are two of the earliest signs that are often confused with simply getting older. Hypothyroidism can go detected for many years before it reaches a more serious state. If left untreated, it can result in heart problems, nerve injury, and even death.

Some signs of hypothyroidism include:

If you’ve experienced some of these signs, schedule an appointment with Naima Cheema, MD to get the treatment you need.

Feel your best with bioidentical hormones

Women are eight times more likely than men to develop a thyroid problem in their life. Even though the thyroid is small, it affects nearly every organ, tissue, and cell in your body. That’s why undergoing treatment with bioidentical hormones is one of the best ways to get your body back on track while preventing further health problems.

Bioidentical hormones are made from plant sources and mimic the exact makeup of the natural T3 and T4 hormones in your body. They come in many different forms including pills, patches, shots, and creams. The dosage varies from person to person, and often needs to be adjusted throughout treatment to achieve balance and maximize efficiency.

Most people with hypothyroidism need bioidentical hormones to resolve their unpleasant symptoms. Many of our patients are amazed at how much better they feel after treatment and report a significant increase in energy levels and overall concentration.

Scheduling a health exam with Dr. Cheema is the first step toward a healthier future. Call 770-558-2873 to schedule your appointment, or book online.
