Hypothyroidism / Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
DiagnosisDiagnosing hypothyroidism involves a series of tests, including a blood test to measure the levels of thyroid hormones in the body. In addition, we may order additional tests to evaluate the function of other organs and systems in the body.
TreatmentAt VITALIZE, we offer a range of treatments for hypothyroidism, including:
- Thyroid hormone replacement therapy: We use either synthetic or natural thyroid hormone replacements, which are derived from animal thyroid glands and are identical to the hormones produced by the human thyroid gland. This can help restore healthy hormone levels in the body and reduce symptoms of hypothyroidism.
- Nutritional support: We may recommend dietary changes or supplements to support thyroid health.
- Lifestyle changes: We work with each patient to develop a personalized plan to support overall health and well-being, which can include stress management, exercise, and sleep optimization.
