The thyroid hormone is one of the most critical hormones in a woman’s body. One reason for this is that it effectively governs the metabolism, which means it impacts everything from appetite to weight maintenance to energy level. And the thyroid hormone plays a significant role in determining how all the other hormones function. As women advance in age, they can lose some of their natural thyroid production, and with it their youthful vitality. Thankfully, thyroid hormone treatments can help them undo any unwanted effects. We are proud to offer thyroid therapy at LongevityMed, a leading wellness medicine provider in Raleigh, NC.

Why Thyroid Therapy?

When the body no longer produces a sufficient level of thyroid hormone, it’s called hypothyroidism. There are a number of potential symptoms of this condition, including many effects associated with a slow metabolism.

Women might benefit from thyroid therapy at LongevityMed if they exhibit any of the following symptoms:

  • A chronic level of fatigue
  • Difficulty maintaining weight or losing weight
  • Hair that becomes coarse or begins to fall out
  • A pervasive sense of depression
  • Frequent constipation
  • A decrease in libido
  • Sexual dysfunction

These are just some of the effects associated with hypothyroidism... but thyroid hormone treatments can provide a solution.

Treating Hypothyroidism with Thyroid Therapy

If you believe that your body is suffering from a thyroid deficiency, we invite you to make an appointment with us at LongevityMed in Raleigh, NC.

The first thing we’ll do is sit down with you in a relaxed and confidential setting. This will give us a chance to talk with you about your symptoms, take your medical history, and run some lab work. We’ll also take your questions and help you determine whether thyroid therapy is right for you.

If you decide to pursue thyroid hormone treatments, they can be administered either via pellets (here in the office) or injections (self-administered at home).
