Hypothyroidism, which is the term for an underactive thyroid gland, is one of the most common disorders of the endocrine system in the United States today. Whether you struggle with this condition or with hyperthyroidism. All of the professionals listed here use Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to treat the various symptoms of hormone imbalance of the thyroid. You may experience some or all of the following symptoms if your thyroid produces too little of the hormones your body needs:

  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Persistent fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Low sex drive
  • Headaches
  • Depression

Hyperthyroidism tends to produce the opposite symptoms, such as:

  • Losing weight without trying
  • Excess energy
  • Diarrhea
  • Anxiety or nervousness
  • Increased heart rate

Regardless of your symptoms or specific diagnosis, you can get help from Wilson County Tennessee Thyroid Doctors who offer bioidentical hormones. Rather than writing a prescription for synthetic thyroid medication, these doctors use BHRT because of its natural ingredients. Your doctor and a local pharmacist work together to create a bioidentical hormone compound containing plant materials as the main ingredients. The hormones in these plants have a genetic structure that is nearly identical to your own. This promotes faster absorption by your body as well as relief of your thyroid imbalance symptoms.

Although thyroid disorders are common, they are frequently misdiagnosed. Men and women may even hear that there is nothing wrong with them at all. Your doctor will use the most up-to-date laboratory values to ensure that he or she has an accurate reading of your hormone levels.

Once you’ve located the ideal provider, call his or her office to request an intake interview and a physical assessment. The last thing you need to do before you can start BHRT is decide on the best method of administration for your individual needs.
