Find Balance & Feel Rejuvenated 

with Thyroid Optimization

Thyroid Optimization Therapy

Hormonal optimization for one of the most important regulators in your body - the Thyroid Gland.

The Thyroid Gland plays a major role in the metabolism, growth and development of your body.

 

Often overlooked and not fully measured, the thyroid is a culprit for many of us when we feel "off," gain weight, are slower at processing or even have aesthetic changes like thinning hair or dry skin. There are a variety of tests that traditional family practice physicians may run, however often begin with a high level test that does not detect all Thyroid levels. 

 

Optimal levels of thyroid hormone are essential to your well-being because the thyroid hormones impact every cell and organ in our body! Most of the time, we get a standard thyroid panel which usually only includes TSH and T4. However, to obtain a clearer picture of your thyroid health, we must also test additional markers such as free T4, free T3, and reverse T3 (rT3).

How does the Thyroid Gland work?

Our Thyroid gland resides in our neck and produces a pro-hormone called T4 (thyroxine), which doesn't actually become active until it is converted into T3 (triiodothyronine).

 

The pituitary gland, which is in the brain, helps control the thyroid gland. The pituitary releases a thyroid-stimulating hormone (also referred to as TSH). The release of TSH into the bloodstream makes the thyroid gland release thyroid hormones.

These two important glands work together to regulate your hormones, manages your metabolism and plays a vital role in development.

Uses & Benefits

Common Symptoms

There are a variety of modalities to consume Thyroid Optimization. At Thrive, we prefer to provide our patients with tablets so that the addition of this treatment into daily life is simple and easy to remember. Most patients prefer a twice-daily tablet than an injection or topical treatment. Before we provide a prescription for BHRT, we have an in-depth discussion with our patients to understand their daily habits and behaviors and develop a treatment plan that fits them the best.

The most common needs for Thyroid Optimization are:

  • Depression

  • Fatigue or lethargy

  • Weight gain

  • Forgetfulness or slow thinking

  • Abnormalities in cholesterol and triglycerides

  • A tendency to feel cold even when others feel warm

As we age, three things occur with your thyroid hormone:​​

  1. The thyroid gland produces less T4

  2. The body converts T4 to T3 less effectively

  3. The thyroid receptor becomes less sensitive to T3
