For a butterfly shaped gland that typically weighs less than 26 grams and sports lobes that are a mere 6 centimeters long, the thyroid can sure cause a lot of big problems for men and women alike. Hypothyroidism, goiter, hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease are just four of the medical community’s biggest concerns. Thankfully, there is a place that both genders may go to receive expert help for their thyroid problems. It’s our medical practice in Weston, Florida.
We offer thyroid optimization services that are designed to address a whole range of symptoms associated with the health conditions that we mentioned previously. They include, but are not limited to hair loss, inflammation, hypersensitivity to temperature, gastrointestinal distress, weight gain, chronic fatigue and dull skin. The way that our medical practice’s thyroid optimization services work is simple.
It starts with Dr. Nerette and Stephanie Nerette MSN, FNP-C conducting a series of thyroid tests in order to determine a baseline. Once the baseline is established, work may begin on crafting a personalized care plan that’s designed to correct any imbalances and restore full thyroid functioning. This may include taking bio-identical hormone replacement pellets, engaging in IV nutritional therapy and adopting and iodine rich diet.
For those that don’t know, our pituitary glands scour the blood for traces of thyroid hormone, which is obviously released by the thyroid gland. In order to function properly, our thyroid gland needs iodine. It’s one of the building blocks used to make the hormone. That’s why IV nutritional therapy and bio-identical hormone replacement pellets tend to provide our medical practice’s patients quick relief from their thyroid problems.
