Thyroid Disorder Treatment
The thyroid is a small gland that is known as the master gland of metabolism. Almost all your body’s systems and functions rely on the hormones produced and excreted by your thyroid gland. Proper thyroid function can be significantly hindered by stress, inadequate protein intake, high-carbohydrate diets, selenium deficiency, elevated cortisol, iodine deficiency, chronic illness, and some prescription medications.
At Bentley Medical & Aesthetics we analyze your thyroid function through serum blood testing to determine your thyroid hormone balance, then work to optimize your hormone levels to enable your body to function properly. Sometimes, this involves a targeted lifestyle change, involving more exercise, more sleep, better diet, and/or dietary supplements.
We also offer our patients an IV infusion in our IV Cocktail Lounge that promotes and protects healthy thyroid hormone production. Our Thyroid Health Cocktail will give your thyroid a boost, resulting in decreased hypothyroid symptoms. Learn More About Our IV Cocktail Lounge
In the event we determine that these steps will not produce the ideal results, we may recommend prescription medication or natural thyroid medication to achieve hormonal balance and enhance your overall sense of wellbeing.
