An underactive thyroid, hypothyroidism, can lead to unexpected weight gain, fatigue, and even depression. Its symptoms are often misdiagnosed as unavoidable byproducts of aging. Aqua Vitae offers thyroid hormone management therapy to help alleviate symptoms and restore you to optimal wellness. Millions of Americans suffer from avoidable chronic joint aches, sensitivity to cold, dry skin and menstrual irregularities. However, to remedy these frustrating and life-altering ailments, they must have a physician who knows how to appropriately diagnose thyroid disorders.
Thyroid tests are blood tests that check how well the thyroid gland is regulating the way the body uses energy. Physicians usually request only a TSH and perhaps a T4 level, but these are insufficient. To get a complete picture of thyroid function you also need to measure Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3 as well as thyroid antibodies. If these levels are not also checked by a doctor who knows what to look for, a patient could continue to struggle with weight gain, fatigue, and headache without explanation.
Thorough and individualized testing is an essential key to identifying and treating thyroid disorders. Conditions such as fatigue and muscle aches can be debilitating and persistent if the proper tests are not administered. Aqua Vitae’s experienced team in Charleston knows what to look for. Once thyroid levels are accurately diagnosed, our medical staff can recommend treatments that can quickly and effectively alleviate your symptoms.
