Thyroid Testing and Treatment

at The Hormone Center:

It is estimated that 60% of those with an underactive thyroid, also known as hypothyroidism, are undiagnosed. This occurs since most doctors rely only on a thyroid test called TSH or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. A TSH may come back “within normal range”, however, based on your symptoms this level may not be the optimal level for you. Many physicians do not make this distinction or take symptoms into consideration when looking for thyroid disorders. At The Hormone Center, our goal is to optimize thyroid levels for each individual patient versus attempting to hit general population levels.

 

In addition, testing TSH levels, while important, is only the “tip of the iceberg”. It is important to test all of the thyroid hormones, including T3, T4, Free T3, Free T4 and Reverse T3.  For patients to receive the most comprehensive care, our medical providers are trained on how to interpret the results in combination with a patient’s symptoms. Additionally, our providers know how to customize prescriptions for maximum patient benefit and offer natural thyroid treatment options as well.
