Regaining Thyroid Hormone Balance
The thyroid is a large gland located in the front part of the neck. It plays a significant role in many bodily functions, including weight loss, since it’s responsible for manufacturing crucial hormones. Some patients suffer from hypothyroidism, which occurs when the thyroid gland produces too little thyroid hormone. This can result in problems such as weight gain, fatigue, poor energy, insomnia, depression, and impaired concentration. If you suspect you could be suffering from hypothyroidism, consider visiting a wellness clinic for an exam and diagnostic test.
Lab tests are required to confirm the diagnosis, but once this is done, you can look forward to feeling like yourself again. The standard treatment for restoring the proper balance of thyroid hormone is the daily use of synthetic levothyroxine. With this treatment, you should start to feel better within a week or two.
