Thyroid Symptoms in Women

Being one of the main producers of hormones in women and men, problems with the thyroid can cause hormone imbalance in women. BioTE® Medical explores the symptoms of hormonal imbalance below and may be able to assist you in correcting the imbalance.

What is the Thyroid?

The thyroid is the butterfly-shaped gland in the neck that regulates many different metabolic processes throughout the body. The thyroid is just below the Adam’s apple and wraps around the trachea. It requires iodine to produce hormones. The primary hormone produced by the thyroid is called thyroxine (T4). To regulate the release of thyroxine, the thyroid works in tandem with the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland. When levels of thyroxine are low, the hypothalamus releases thyrotropin- releasing hormones (TRH) which causes the pituitary gland to release a thyroid stimulating hormone. More thyroid stimulating hormone allows for more thyroxine to be produced. Thyroid disorders affect the structure and function of the gland. These disorders can be acute or chronic and may be able to be treated with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy pellets such as the ones BioTE Medical discusses. Learn more about the kinds of thyroid disorders, their symptoms and how BHRT pellets may be able to help. What are the kinds of thyroid disorders?

What Are the Kinds of Thyroid Disorders?

There are several kinds of thyroid disorders. Included are hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, goiter, thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer. The most common thyroid condition is hypothyroidism which is when the thyroid produces an insufficient amount of thyroid hormone. It can come from issues within any part of the thyroid feedback loop including the thyroid gland, pituitary gland or hypothalamus. Hypothyroidism symptoms can include fatigue, poor concentration, dry skin, constipation, feeling cold, fluid retention, muscle aches, depression and excessive menstrual bleeding in women.

What is BHRT?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT is the practice of using plant- based hormones to supplement low hormone levels or balance high hormone levels in the body. BioTE Medical offers BHRT to those experiencing thyroid problems in an effort to help them regain emotional and physical balance. Within a week to 10 days after your pellet insertion, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) begins to work, and BioTE Medical patients are back to their active lifestyles.
