Thyroid Symptoms in Women in Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Brandon, Carrollwood, Wesley Chapel & Neighboring Cities
Thyroid symptoms in women are more common than most people realize, and many times, what is often considered just another sign of aging is really your body’s way of letting you know you have an underactive thyroid.
Your thyroid is responsible for producing hormones that are vital to your energy levels and metabolism. As we age, the thyroid may become underactive, which results in a decreased production of these hormones and can lead to a host of unpleasant and uncomfortable symptoms. Fortunately, an underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, is oftentimes treatable with thyroid hormone replacement therapies.
Underactive thyroid symptoms that can present in both men and women include:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Dry Skin
- Moodiness, Anxiety & Depression
- Dry Hair
- Inability to Lose Weight
- Hair Loss
- Dry, Brittle Nails
- Cold Intolerance
- Facial Swelling
- Unexplained Weight Gain
Additionally, thyroid symptoms in women often include heavy menstrual periods along with exaggerated premenstrual symptoms and more.
At K3 Neuroscience & Optimized Wellness, our experienced team of highly skilled neurosurgeons and physicians can custom tailor a thyroid hormone replacement plan for you. Unlike most hormone clinics, we understand the medicine behind hormone replacement therapies, so we create personalized treatment approaches for each and every patient.
Many clinics will focus solely on providing patients with synthetic T4, but that is only one of three vital thyroid hormones. Our skilled team knows that many patients are unable to convert T4 to T3, and because of this, we closely monitor a variety of thyroid hormone levels and offer a unique combination of T3 and/or T4 hormone replacements.
We gladly welcome patients from Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Brandon, Carrollwood, Wesley Chapel and the neighboring cities and can help you determine if your symptoms are related to your thyroid. If so, we know how to treat underactive thyroid symptoms in women and men, so contact us today to schedule an appointment and put yourself back on the path to optimal hormone health.
