Suffering from a Thyroid Disorder? Seek Help at IWC Primary Care The thyroid gland plays a crucial role in maintaining optimal body function, including regulating metabolism, heart rate, temperature, and energy levels. However, millions of people worldwide suffer from thyroid disorders that impair their thyroid function, leading to various health complications. If you're among them, you're not alone, and there's no need to suffer in silence. At IWC Primary Care, we're committed to helping you manage thyroid disorders and restore optimal gland function, resulting in better health outcomes. Thyroid disorders occur when the thyroid gland produces too much or too little hormone. When the gland becomes underactive or overactive, it affects various body functions, leading to hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, respectively. Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland doesn't produce enough hormone, leading to fatigue, weight gain, depression, and constipation, among other symptoms. It can occur due to autoimmune thyroiditis, a condition where the immune system attacks the thyroid gland. Hyperthyroidism, on the other hand, occurs when the gland produces too much hormone, leading to anxiety, weight loss, sweating, and heart palpitations, among other symptoms. At IWC Primary Care, we understand that thyroid disorders are complex conditions that require individualized treatment plans. That's why we conduct comprehensive diagnostic tests to determine the underlying causes of your condition. Our tests include blood tests that measure thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), T4, and T3 hormone levels to detect thyroid dysfunction and autoimmune conditions. Depending on the results, we may recommend medication, such as levothyroxine or methimazole, to manage your symptoms and restore normal thyroid function. If you're suffering from a thyroid disorder, seeking help from an experienced provider is crucial. At IWC Primary Care, we're dedicated to providing individualized care that meets your unique needs. Our providers will help you understand the root cause of your condition, manage your symptoms, and support you towards optimal thyroid functioning. Don't suffer alone.
