Is a Hormonal Imbalance Tipping the Scale: How Thyroid Treatment May Help

There were times in the past where hormonal imbalances were more difficult to diagnose and treat.

A visit to the doctor’s office for weight concerns was likely to leave a person with feelings of guilt for over-eating or for under-activity. In fact, the most frequent advice received, to “Eat Less, and Move More,” left a patient wondering where to find the energy to move more, when the food being eaten didn’t seem to deliver the hoped for energy to work with!

Often, getting a medical practitioner to really listen and make the connection between the hormones and the variety of underactive thyroid symptoms or other hormonal imbalances can become a frustrating and time consuming endeavor. Fortunately, much advancement has been made in understanding hormonal imbalances, and getting to the root cause of weight gain is much more likely.

Since thyroid hormone deficiency is often a culprit, testing of the thyroid hormone is a first step in solving the mystery of hormonal imbalances. With testing, you will answer these questions:

  1. How hard is my thyroid working to produce hormones?
  2. How much crucial thyroid hormone is actually available for my body to use for regulating body temperature, metabolism and other important functions?
  3. Is my body struggling with an autoimmune response known as Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis?

Being an active participant in your own care and health is an important factor in sustaining weight loss and achieving greater health and everyday happiness. Learning about your thyroid and its impact on your whole body will help develop thyroid treatment solutions and habits for greater health and lifelong maintenance of optimal hormonal functioning.

Find a medical office that truly understands the connection between weight gain and hormonal inbalance. Leave no question unanswered when it comes to your health. Thyroid imbalances are treatable and the results can be life-changing. With today’s level of medical knowledge and solutions for thyroid issues, there’s no reason to delay.
