Underactive Thyroid Symptoms

Underactive Thyroid Symptoms in Tampa, Carrollwood, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Brandon & Surrounding Areas

Underactive Thyroid SymptomsYour thyroid gland produces a range of hormones, each of which plays a vital role in your metabolism and energy. Unfortunately, as we age, we often see a decline in these thyroid hormones, which can lead to a host of underactive thyroid symptoms.

Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, is extremely common, but sadly, it often goes undetected. At K3 Neuroscience & Optimized Wellness, we take a targeted, comprehensive approach to testing your thyroid by measuring all three of the thyroid-produced hormones: free triiodothyronine (T3 Free), free thyroxine (T4 Free) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). We closely monitor your free T3, reverse T3, uptake T3, free T4 and TSH levels as well as your level of thyroid antibodies (TPO). By providing this complete testing, we are able to eliminate or treat any underlying autoimmune thyroid disorders.

At times, thyroid hormone replacement therapies may be utilized as part of a custom hypothyroidism treatment plan. Most hormone clinics will rely on synthetic T4 to treat hypothyroidism, but the skilled and experienced neurosurgeons and physicians at K3 Neuroscience & Optimized Wellness have the specialized expertise to know that most patients can’t sufficiently convert T4 to T3. As a result, we offer an extremely successful treatment approach that includes a combination of T3 and/or T4 hormone replacements, along with vitamin and mineral supplementation.

  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Moodiness, Anxiety & Depression
  • Inability to Lose Weight
  • Headaches
  • Hair Loss
  • Dry, Brittle Nails
  • Facial Swelling

If you are experiencing one or more of the above symptoms, hypothyroidism treatment might be necessary to restore your metabolism and increase your energy.
