Thyroid Optimization Q & A
What is thyroid optimization?
Thyroid optimization is a treatment involving bioidentical thyroid hormones, which you can take to regulate the hormones in your body that your thyroid normally produces. Bioidentical thyroid hormones are structurally identical to your natural thyroid hormones, so you don’t need to worry about any unusual side effects from the therapy.
At Center for Wellness and Hormonal Balance, Dr. Revilla customizes your thyroid hormone therapy treatments so you can reach optimal levels of those hormones in your body. He also checks in with you regularly to make sure you’re experiencing a reduction in symptoms of thyroid disease or dysfunction and can change your treatment if necessary.
If all goes well, you should experience rapid relief from your thyroid dysfunction symptoms while undergoing thyroid optimization using bioidentical hormones.
What are some common symptoms of thyroid problems?
Your thyroid is a gland sitting at the base of your neck that releases hormones involved in countless body processes and functions. When your thyroid isn’t functioning properly, the fluctuations in its hormones can cause over 200 types of concerning symptoms that can disrupt your life.
You may be experiencing thyroid problems if you notice any of these persistent issues:
- Muscle cramps
- Dry skin
- Coarse and thinning hair
- Unexplained weight fluctuations
- Menstrual irregularities
If you have symptoms like these and you can’t explain them as coming from other causes, you should consider booking an evaluation at the Center for Wellness and Hormonal Balance with Dr. Revilla. Taking thyroid hormones to relieve symptoms of thyroid problems can be more effective and practical than taking various medications for the symptoms themselves.
When do I need thyroid optimization?
When you come to the Center for Wellness and Hormonal Balance, Dr. Revilla performs a thyroid test. While many doctors mistakenly assume that normal thyroid hormone levels in thyroid test results indicate a well-functioning gland, this isn’t always the case.
To determine with confidence whether or not thyroid problems are the cause of your symptoms, Dr. Revilla performs numerous tests and looks at the big picture with regards to your symptoms and medical history.
If Dr. Revilla determines that you have a thyroid problem, he decides on the dosage of bioidentical hormones you need to get back to normal levels and function optimally again.
