Hypothyroidism doctors often miss out on telling you one crucial part of treatment - it goes much beyond medication. At Jeevam Health, we do things a little differently. And we get real results.

What is hypothyroidism?

In short, your thyroid gland is not producing enough hormones. Here’s what happens.

The thyroid gland is unable to produce hormones like T3 and T4 → the brain tries to stimulate the gland by releasing TSH → The gland may be damaged due to inflammation (such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis) and is unable to respond → The body starts showing symptoms of high TSH and low T3 and T4 levels.

As the thyroid hormones control metabolism and cell growth, most symptoms are related to these.

Hypothyroidism symptoms in men and women

These are the findings seen in most patients. There are also some findings that are gender-specific. The most common hypothyroidism symptoms in men and women are:

Sensitivity to low temperatures

You know how some people feel excessively cold, especially in air-conditioned rooms? Hypothyroidism makes it more difficult to adapt to lower temperatures because your metabolic rate is low.

Weight gain and trouble losing weight

This is one of the most common concerns in people with hypothyroidism. Often even with a healthy diet, the weight just keeps piling on which is a challenge to overcome.

Time for some good news!

Hyperthyroidism can be cured. Hyperthyroidism medication is safe and effective. Depending on your age, type of disease, and severity, your doctor may opt for a medical, surgical, or combination management.

To understand hyperthyroidism treatment, let’s take an example:

1

The leak means your bathroom floor is always wet. So you simply put a bucket to collect the water and mop up the floor. This is what beta blockers do. They control symptoms of high thyroid levels without actually changing disease process.

2

You seal the leak with a cloth or sealant or shut off the main supply so the water can’t get out. This is what antithyroid medication does. It blocks the production and release of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland.

3

You replace the tap. This is a more longterm solution, like the one offered by functional medicine. While the other measures are necessary for initial control, lifestyle changes are the key to better health permanently.

A hyperthyroidism specialist charts the best plan for you for optimal results. Get in touch with Jeevam Health for more details on how your hyperthyroidism can be cured.

Irregular and heavy periods

Irregular and heavy periods

Infertility is often the result of the inability to release the egg in a timely manner. However, the myth that hypothyroidism cannot be treated is not true. With the judicious use of hypothyroidism medication and lifestyle changes, women have successful pregnancies.

Hypothyroidism in men

Men often find it uncomfortable to discuss bedroom troubles. However, it’s very important to overcome your reservations because hypothyroidism doctors can help you.

Erectile dysfunction and ejaculatory disorders are common with hypothyroidism. They can even lead to depression. Men may also face a reduced sperm count or altered sperm morphology. All of this becomes a bigger problem especially if you’re planning a pregnancy.

The good news is - there is a solution! And it doesn’t require any expensive medicines or machines.

How does hypothyroidism medication work?

medication-image

Hypothyroidism doctors prescribe a synthetic form of the thyroid hormone that directly supplements what your body is unable to produce.

Your body is in a state of deficiency + your body is unable to produce the required hormones → directly supplying the hormones to your body externally is the easiest treatment. But what happens when you don’t control the disease process?

Your thyroid gland continues to get damaged → Thyroid function worsens as your body produces less and less hormones → You have to take a higher dose of medication to match your needs. That’s where we come in.
