Thyroid Disease in Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Brandon, Carrollwood, Wesley Chapel & Nearby Cities
Thyroid disease most commonly refers to hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid. Essentially, this form of thyroid disease occurs when your thyroid gland, a small gland near the lower front region of your neck, produces too few thyroid hormones. Since these hormones are vital for both metabolism and energy, hypothyroidism can cause a number of unpleasant symptoms including the following and more:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Inability to Lose Weight
- Depression and Moodiness
- Unexplained Weight Gain
- Muscle Pain and Weakness
- Hair Loss
Unfortunately, despite suffering from one or more of the above symptoms, many patients who are suffering from thyroid disease often go undiagnosed and untreated due to flaws present in the standard thyroid test. Many believe that as many as 1 in 7 adults suffer from hypothyroidism, but because their thyroid levels remain within or closely near what used to be considered “normal” ranges, their symptoms are often overlooked or attributed to aging or a range of other conditions.
At K3 Neuroscience and Optimized Wellness, we ensure that a comprehensive thyroid test is conducted to fully evaluate your thyroid hormone levels and diagnose patients according to the standards released by the Society of Endocrinologists back in 2002. As a result, we are able to diagnose hypothyroidism in patients whose symptoms were previously untreated and initiate the proper course of treatment.
Our highly experienced neurosurgeons and physicians specialize in treating thyroid conditions and other hormonal imbalances, and we do not believe there is a one-size-fits-all solution for treating unique individuals. As a result, each of our treatment plans is custom tailored to the patient’s needs. We carefully calculate initial doses and closely monitor ongoing lab values to ensure that the optimal hormone levels are achieved and underactive thyroid symptoms are decreased or eliminated. If you live in Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Brandon, Carrollwood, Wesley Chapel or nearby cities and believe you are suffering from undiagnosed and untreated thyroid disease, contact us today to schedule a comprehensive thyroid test with the experts at K3 Neuroscience and Optimized Wellness.
