Thyroid Therapy

at Omniya Clinic in London

If you are feeling especially tired, have unexplained weight gain, have especially dry hair or skin or are feeling depressed then you may be struggling with hypothyroidism, an under active thyroid gland, and thyroid therapy from the Omniya Clinic could help you.

An under-performing thyroid is an increasingly common medical condition and one that many people do not realise they have issues with. At the Omniya clinic we can carry out comprehensive thyroid blood tests (commonly including: TSH, free T3, free T4, thyroid autoantibodies and reverse T3) and assess the result together with your medical history and symptoms in order to put together a complete picture of your thyroid function.

What is the thyroid?

The thyroid is a gland, found on the front of your neck,  which secretes hormones throughout the body. These hormones are released around the body, where they have an influence over your metabolism, growth and development and body temperature. Appropriate thyroid secretion is particularly important during infancy and childhood when it is crucial for brain development. However, it is also important as we grow older, as an imbalance in the thyroid hormones can cause some other health issues. If not caught and treated, these imbalances can lead to further medical issues later down the line such as heart issues and pregnancy problems.

What is thyroid therapy?

Thyroid hormone replacement therapy relates to the type of manmade thyroid hormones that are used to raise any abnormally low levels of hormones that are present in the body. The therapy is most commonly prescribed in the form of pills which are normally used to treat an underactive thyroid; that is a thyroid which isn’t secreting enough of the appropriate hormone around the body. If not diagnosed and treated these low levels of thyroid hormones can have an immense impact on the body and cause a range of problems, that will have implications later on in life.
