Thyroid in Men
The thyroid gland and its many associated hormones can be thought of as the “traffic center” for your endocrine system. Thyroid hormones are important in their own right, especially for regulating metabolism. But healthy thyroid function is also critical to the balance of your other hormones. When something is out of whack elsewhere in your endocrine system, the thyroid gland will work hard to compensate.
The Facts about Thyroid
- Being low thyroid frequently goes hand in hand with imbalances in other hormones.
- There is a symbiotic relationship between thyroid and other hormones. Treating other hormones without checking thyroid is not an effective way to balance hormones.
- Many symptoms of low thyroid overlap with symptoms of other hormone imbalances, including fatigue, weight gain, irritability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, and brain fog.
Treatment for Low Thyroid
Has your primary care physician checked your thyroid and said it’s fine? It may not be. This is why we always check T3 free. If T3 free is low, our doctors will provide the treatment that was needed all along, using bioidentical thyroid that contains both T4 and T3, in a dose that will get levels to the upper end of lab- tested ranges. There are many facets to better aging. Thyroid is one of them.
