at Omniya Clinic in London
Thyroid therapy is beneficial to those people who are struggling with an underactive thyroid. It can help to correct the imbalance of hormones that cause issues such as weight gain, excess tiredness and even depression. It can also be used for a number of other issues including:
When you make an appointment for thyroid therapy at Omniya clinic you will be in good hands. One of our highly experienced doctors will take a full and detailed medical history with you and discuss any concerns that you might have. They will then conduct a thyroid function test. This is a simple procedure which will only take a couple of minutes. A blood sample is taken which will measure your hormone levels and give an indication of how your thyroid is working. Your doctor may decide that a range of other tests may be appropriate in order to get a full picture of the health of your thyroid.
Depending on the results of your test, your Omniya doctor may recommend thyroid therapy, which is a form of hormone replacement therapy. This will only be recommended if it is appropriate for your condition. Your blood test results will give a good indication of the level of thyroid hormones in the blood and this can then be used to determine the appropriate levels of thyroid hormone therapy that you will require.
Treatment will be ongoing and regular checks will need to be made to see if your levels have risen. This can take some time but it is important to ensure that they have reached the appropriate levels. It is a good idea once your levels have reached the normal amount that a check-up is carried out each year to ensure they remain the same.
The condition is common in both men and women however it is more commonly found in women. It can also be found in children of all ages and some babies can be born with thyroid issues which is why it is tested for when they are just a few days old with a heal prick blood test. Catching an underactive thyroid early is very important. Whilst sleepiness and weight gain may not seem like a huge concern, an untreated thyroid condition can if not dealt with lead to other more serious conditions over time.
Through the supplement of nutrients that support the thyroid or with a prescribed low dose of thyroid hormones, our highly experienced doctors at Omniya will create a treatment plan that will be tailored to each individual’s exact needs, whilst monitoring the progress and improvements made by their patients. With the right monitoring and the best treatment available it is possible to bring your thyroid function back under control, allowing you to lead a healthy normal life.
