TSH Levels in Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Brandon, Carrollwood, Wesley Chapel & Surrounding Cities
When a doctor tests your thyroid, he or she is really checking your thyroid hormone levels as well as your TSH levels. TSH, or thyroid stimulating hormone, is not produced in the thyroid. Rather, it is produced in the pituitary gland and is the hormone responsible for signaling your thyroid to create the thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4).
When your thyroid is operating normally, your T3 and T4 hormone levels will remain balanced. However, when your thyroid begins to produce too many or too few of these hormones, you can begin to experience a host of thyroid issues and find yourself with an over- or underactive thyroid diagnosis. In some cases, a patient’s TSH levels simply aren’t where they need to be to maintain normal hormone levels. In these instances, treatment may be necessary to avoid a variety of unwelcome symptoms, including:
- Weight Gain
- Inability to Lose Weight
- Hair Loss
- Muscle Aches & Weakness
- and More
Underactive thyroid is a condition in which perhaps as many as 1 in 7 adults suffer, and at K3 Neuroscience Optimized Wellness, we know how to accurately diagnose thyroid issues that other medical professionals may have missed by using outdated guidelines.
