What Is the Thyroid?
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in our neck that regulates numerous metabolic processes in the body. The structure and function of the thyroid can change due to thyroid disorders. These disorders can be either acute or chronic, but the symptoms of both may be relieved with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT.
What Are the Kinds of Thyroid Disorders?
There are a wide variety of thyroid disorders. These include thyroid cancer, thyroid nodules, goiters, hyperthyroidism, and hypothyroidism. The most common thyroid issue is hypothyroidism, a condition causing the thyroid to produce a deficient amount of hormones. This can stem from problems in any part of the thyroid feedback loop, including the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and the thyroid gland itself. Sufferers of hypothyroidism report symptoms such as fatigue, poor concentration, dry skin, constipation, feeling cold, fluid retention, muscle aches, low mood, and excessive menstrual bleeding. If this sounds familiar, don’t hesitate to reach out to a certified BioTE provider to discuss how the BioTE method of BHRT may help address the symptoms of thyroid disorders and help restore hormonal balance to the body.
