How Do I Begin My Hypothyroidism (Thyroid Hormone) Journey?

Begin your journey from hypothyroidism to good health! Having an underactive thyroid is known as hypothyroidism, and when your thyroid gland can’t make enough thyroid hormone to keep your body running the right way, you can suffer from the negative effects of low thyroid function. Millions of Americans are diagnosed with low thyroid disease, and increasingly patients are gaining awareness that their thyroids may be to blame for issues of fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, memory issues, aches and pains, insomnia, hair loss, hot flashes, night sweats, or sensitivity to cold. Wouldn’t you like to begin your journey to real relief from hypothyroidism?

Am I a Candidate for a Hypothyroidism (Thyroid Hormone) Journey?

More and more patients want to know how to free themselves from the thyroid trap. If you suffer from low thyroid functioning, it is likely that you experience fatigue and low energy, reduced cognitive functioning, including in the form of forgetfulness or even depression. The underlying cause may be hypothyroidism, which refers to having too little thyroid hormone present in your bloodstream. The aging process, along with genetics and other factors unique to your physical condition, can all affect how your thyroid hormones function. When your thyroid slows down in its production of the hormones needed for your basic metabolism and energy, it can be a real problem, and if so, then you may be a candidate for a hypothyroidism (thyroid hormone) journey to a better quality of life.

What Happens During My Hypothyroidism (Thyroid Hormone) Treatment?

Assessing all of the attendant environmental and lifestyle factors that can have a deleterious effect on the proper functioning of your thyroid gland is an essential part of your thyroid hormone treatment. Caused by an underactive thyroid gland that’s no longer able to produce enough thyroid hormone to sustain a healthy body, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (also called autoimmune or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis), is an overwhelmingly common form of thyroid disease affecting over 10 million Americans and it’s a condition that is almost seven times more likely to affect women than men. With Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, your body’s immune system produces immune cells and autoantibodies that damage your thyroid cells and compromise their ability to produce the essential thyroid hormone at a level that’s sufficient to meet your body’s needs. Often this is caused by problems in your immune system, which are designed to protect your body against invaders, such as bacteria, viruses, and other foreign substances. In cases of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the immune system mistakenly recognizes normal thyroid cells as foreign tissues and produces antibodies that may destroy these cells. By replacing your thyroid hormone levels in the optimal range, you can improve how you feel, and function, and typically a natural or bioidentical form of thyroid hormone is recommended.

Hypothyroidism Diagnosis for Underactive Thyroid

The first sign of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis may be a painless enlargement in the lower front of the throat region. This enlargement may produce an uncomfortable sensation of pressure in the lower neck, and the pressure on surrounding tissue may cause additional symptoms, such as difficulty swallowing. To detect Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, a physical examination is required, as well as laboratory tests that measure the amount of thyroid hormone (T3, T4, and free T3, free T4), along with thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in your bloodstream. The measurement of antibodies in the blood that attack the thyroid (antithyroid antibodies) may also help to diagnose the cause of hypothyroidism. If you suspect you may have this condition, it is imperative that you see a doctor at once.

When I Return Home from Hypothyroidism (Thyroid Hormone) Treatment What Will I Experience?

Your thyroid is a gland responsible for producing your thyroid hormones, which help your body metabolize energy, regulate your body temperatures, and support your brain, heart, muscles and other vital organs, and it plays a powerful role in regulating your metabolism. As your treatment progresses and your body begins to manufacture these essential hormones at an appropriate level, you’ll start to experience the reduction in symptoms, such as fatigue, fuzzy thinking, low blood pressure, depression and body pain characteristic of hypothyroidism.

When Will My Hypothyroidism (Thyroid Hormone) Journey End and When Will I Have My Results?

Optimizing your thyroid hormone levels can reverse many of the negative symptoms correlated with hypothyroidism, and as your body adjusts, the more appropriate regulation of your metabolic and cerebral functions will cause beneficial outcomes.
