Hormone Replacement Therapy for Hyperthyroidism in Cherry Hill, NJ

Hyperthyroidism Treatment in Cherry Hill, NJ

Located at the front of your neck, the thyroid gland is crucial to your overall wellness. By producing the thyroid hormones, this gland regulates your metabolism and cholesterol levels, and affects your muscles, bones, and heart.

An overactive thyroid gland causes the condition known as hyperthyroidism. With an overabundance of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), your body will experience numerous devitalizing symptoms that will undermine your way of life. If you're struggling with thyroid woes, please call (856) 424-8222 or contact Dr. Allan Magaziner online.

Causes of Hyperthyroidism

Many factors contribute to hyperthyroidism. Graves' disease, which causes your body's immune system to target the thyroid gland, is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. Your body responds to Graves' disease by overproducing the thyroid hormones.
Hyperthyroidism can also be caused by an inflamed thyroid gland, known as thyroiditis. Your doctor can test for these conditions by checking your hormone levels. This is performed with a blood test, saliva test or urine test.

Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism

Because it causes so many symptoms and side-effects, hyperthyroidism is often misdiagnosed. Patients who have an overactive thyroid gland typically experience many of the following symptoms:

  • Sudden weight loss
  • High appetite
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Thinning hair and skin
  • Irritable bowels
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Tremors

In addition to these symptoms, the tell-tale sign of hyperthyroidism is a visible goiter. When located on the front of the neck, a goiter is literally an enlarged thyroid. If you're noticing these symptoms, please call (856) 424-8222 or contact Dr. Allan Magaziner online.

Hyperthyroidism Treatment

Hyperthyroidism treatment is based around balancing your hormones. Because hyperthyroidism involves an overactive gland, anti-thyroid medications and possibly even thyroid removal surgery (thyroidectomy) are recommended. Surgery is taken only as a last resort, or for those that cannot take hormonal medication.

Getting your hormone levels equalized may also require bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT. Some hyperthyroid treatments may actually cause your gland to become underproductive. This is where BHRT comes into play, as it replenishes your thyroid hormones with naturally identical T3 and T4.

Other hyperthyroidism treatment possibilities include:

  • Iodine supplements
  • Changes in diet
  • Changes in exercise
  • Beta blockers
