There are several symptoms that are associated with hypothyroidism, including:
- Fatigue and low energy levels
- A puffy, swollen face
- Joint pain
- Significant weight gain for no known reason
- Dry skin
- Muscle aches
- Thinning hair
- Slowed heart rate
Hypothyroidism can be caused by varying factors. The presence of an autoimmune disease, such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, can attack your own body’s tissue and cause an imbalance in thyroid hormones. Hypothyroidism can also be caused by taking certain medications, radiation therapy used for treating cancer, thyroid surgery that has removed all or some of the thyroid, and treatments for hyperthyroidism may cause permanent hypothyroidism. Before treatment Dr. Lewis will evaluate what may be causing your thyroid issue and create a treatment plan accordingly.
At Superior T, Dr. Lewis treats hypothyroidism using prescribed medication. He creates a customized treatment plan and evaluates the dosage needed for each specific patient. This treatment works to replace the normal levels of the thyroid hormone. The medication is typically taken once daily in pill form and the dosage may be adjusted as needed during follow-up appointments.
