Bioidentical Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy in  North Spokane, WA

The most common thyroid disorders include hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Having hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism can be both unpleasant and uncomfortable, but these thyroid conditions can be managed if properly diagnosed and treated.

Hypothyroidism

What is hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which your thyroid does not make enough of the most important thyroid hormones called triiodothyronine (T-3) and thyroxine (T-4).

What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism?

Some more common symptoms of hypothyroidism include the following:

  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness or stiffness
  • Dry or cold skin
  • Heavy or irregular menstrual periods
  • Constipation
  • Elevated blood cholesterol level
  • Slowed heart rate
  • Depression
  • Low libido
  • Joint pain
  • Cold extremities
  • Foggy brain
  • Hair thinning or falling out
  • Reduced attention span
  • Inability to lose weight

What causes hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism is a form of hormonal imbalance; in this case the thyroid gland is under-productive. Your doctor will check for a hormone deficiency before beginning any treatment.

What are the risks of untreated hypothyroidism?

If left untreated, hypothyroidism can lead to myxedema, a condition that causes tissues to swell, increases fluid around the lungs and heart, and slows down muscle reflexes. A myxedema coma may cause you to lose consciousness, experience trouble breathing, and can potentially lead to heart failure. Hypothyroidism can also cause mental health issues like depression and slowed mental functioning.

Bioidentical Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Like hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism can be treated with BHRT. With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, your doctor can raise your thyroid levels and provide relief.
