Functional Medicine for Thyroid Disorders in Mount Pleasant & North Charleston
Are you having issues with your thyroid that need to be addressed? The functional medicine doctors of Revitalize Health Center in North Charleston and Mount Pleasant are here to help you out. Below is more information about thyroid disorders and how functional medicine can help.
What Are Thyroid Disorders?
Thyroid disorders include goiter, hyperthyroidism, and hypothyroidism. Goiter is where the gland is larger than it should be, but is not cancerous or life-threatening. Hyperthyroidism is where the thyroid produces too many hormones. Hypothyroidism is where the thyroid produces too little hormones.
What Causes Thyroid Disorders?
Hyperthyroidism can be caused by several conditions. These conditions include subacute thyroiditis, Graves disease, cancer growths on the thyroid gland, toxic adenomas, and the pituitary gland not functioning properly.
Hypothyroidism can make a person feel less energetic than they should. Hypothyroidism is caused by the thyroid gland being surgically removed, being exposed to too much iodide in medicines or procedures, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Although not as common as the other conditions above, thyroid cancer can also cause hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Most of these disorders can be treated with the right kind of medicine.
How Can Functional Medicine Help
Functional medicine uses natural methods to get you back to feeling healthy again. Traditional medicine can bring pain relief, but does not get to the root issue of a disorder. Functional medicine focuses on finding the root cause.
