Thyroid Services Q & A

What is the thyroid?

The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped structure found at the base of your neck. It's an endocrine gland, meaning its job is to produce hormones to control various vital functions in your body.

Hormones produced by your thyroid control these functions and more:

  • How quickly you burn calories
  • How rapidly your heart beats
  • Whether you lose or gain weight

Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center offers comprehensive thyroid services to help restore the full functioning of your thyroid and relieve common symptoms of thyroid disorders.

What are the symptoms of thyroid problems?

A malfunctioning thyroid can affect your whole body, causing a wide variety of symptoms, including:  

  • Fatigue
  • Increased sensitivity to cold
  • Constipation
  • Dry skin
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Puffy face
  • Hoarseness
  • Muscle weakness or muscle aches, tenderness, and stiffness
  • High cholesterol
  • Heavy or irregular menstrual periods
  • Hair loss
  • Changes in heart rate
  • Depression
  • Foggy memory
  • Swelling or enlargement in the neck

Because a thyroid disorder can affect every part of your health and well-being, it’s best to contact Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center as soon as you experience any of these symptoms.

How are thyroid disorders diagnosed?

Your Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center provider tests your thyroid using a comprehensive blood panel. They draw your blood in the convenience of their office and send it off to a lab for analysis.

Your results usually come back within a week. Your provider reviews the results with you and together you agree on the best treatment plan to ensure you feel good again and enjoy an optimal quality of life.

Can thyroid services help me lose weight?

Perhaps you’ve been eating right and exercising regularly, but the pounds don’t come off like they used to. Difficulty losing weight affects men and women alike. In some cases, there’s a reason for it -- your body is actively working against you.

Metabolic disorders, including problems with your thyroid, can cause you to put on extra pounds. You may have slowly gained weight for several years not knowing you had an undiagnosed thyroid issue.

Your provider at Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center can remedy your thyroid imbalance with treatments to restore your health and help you reach your weight-loss goals.
