Optimal thyroid balance is essential for both men and women. Just like male and female hormones, thyroid hormone plays a vital role in our health and wellbeing. At your appointment, we will discuss various signs and symptoms that could alert us to a thyroid imbalance. We will explore components of family and personal history, lifestyle factors and existing medical conditions in our evaluation. Typical patient concerns include low energy, weight gain, hair loss/thinning, eyebrow thinning, cold intolerance, muscle/joint aches, dry skin, hair and nails, brittle hair, changes in memory and mental focus, and mood changes. There are also long term health conditions that are exacerbated by thyroid imbalance. We will perform a thorough evaluation, providing guidance and recommendations, and if necessary get you started on a regimen designed for you. Both you and your provider will come up with a treatment plan that is best suited for you.
