Tomball Thyroid Treatment & Hormone Therapy
The thyroid is a small gland located in the front of your neck. It produces hormones that play an important role in metabolism, which is how your body creates the energy it needs to digest food, pump your heart and carry out other vital cellular tasks.
When the thyroid becomes diseased or dysfunctional, it may start producing too much or too little of these hormones, which can cause a range of symptoms.
If the thyroid is underactive (hypothyroidism), you may feel fatigued, experience constipation, and gain weight. Conversely, if the thyroid is overactive (hyperthyroidism or thyrotoxicosis), you may have trouble falling asleep, have loose bowels, and lose weight.
Common Symptoms of Thyroid Disorders
The signs and symptoms of thyroid problems vary from person to person. The severity of the condition also affects which signs and symptoms appear and when. The symptoms are also sometimes difficult to identify. For most people, symptoms of the condition progress gradually over many years.
Signs and symptoms of an underactive thyroid may include:
- Weight gain
- Muscle weakness, stiffness, and aches
- Dry skin and hair
- Joint stiffness and pain
Signs and symptoms of an overactive thyroid may include:
- Unintentional weight loss
- Rapid or irregular heartbeat
- Nervousness, anxiety, and irritability
- Increased sensitivity to heart and uncontrollable sweating
- Difficulty sleeping
- Changes in bowel and menstrual patterns
Diagnosis & Treatments of Thyroid Disorders
TrendHealth Clinic provides thyroid treatment in Tomball to help diagnose and treat your thyroid-related disorders. If your thyroid disorders stem from the over- or under-production of thyroid hormones, we will try to restore the hormone levels to their proper balance. Hyperthyroidism (too much) needs treatment that will slow down the making of thyroid hormone, while hypothyroidism (too little) needs hormone replacement.
Drugs and surgery are usually effective ways to adjust hormone levels. Other treatments, including diet supplements, herbal remedies, and special exercises, may relieve some of the discomforts and help the thyroid gland work better.
Our hormone therapy providers in Tomball, can prescribe thyroid hormone therapy for hypothyroidism. Other reasons for using thyroid hormone therapy may rarely include:
- To control the growth of the enlarged thyroid gland (also called goiter)
- To control the growth of nodules on the thyroid gland
- Treatment after the removal of the thyroid for benign or malignant disease
- After treatment of hyperthyroidism by radioactive iodine ablation
