Thyroid Diagnosis and Management
Thyroid problems happen when your thyroid is either underactive or overactive.
Hypothyroidism is characterized by a deficiency of the thyroid hormone, and it can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, muscle aches, weight gain, irregular or heavy menstrual periods and even depression, among many others.
Hyperthyroidism, on the other hand, happens when your thyroid overproduces hormones. This could create a series of health issues, like increased levels of irritability, agitation, poor concentration, or palpitations.
In case you have been experiencing any of these symptoms, it could be a good idea to test your TSH levels and, if there is an imbalance, work with OC Sports And Wellness to restore the hormone levels to their proper balance. For hypothyroidism, this could mean hormone replacement; for hyperthyroidism, a treatment that will slow down the making of thyroid hormones.
Ou experts at OC Sports and Wellness will identify which treatment is best for you, taking into consideration your particular thyroid condition, as well as your age, general health, and past medical issues.
