Thyroid Therapy In Greater Madison
Thyroid conditions are very common and can cause a decreased quality of life.
We treat all kinds of thyroid conditions based on the results of lab testing and symptoms. We use all types of thyroid medications including Armour thyroid, Nature-Throid, Cytomel and levothyroxine depending on the individual’s needs, response to treatment and testing.
Common low thyroid symptoms include fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, fluid retention, dry skin, breaking nails, depression, lack of sex drive, heavy and irregular periods, infertility, low body temperature and many others.
Common blood tests for thyroid conditions at our office include
- Free T3, Free T4, TSH
- Thyroid antibodies (TPO, Thyroglobulin)
- Reverse T3
Your insurance company may not pay for these labs if the initial TSH is normal.
We require an annual visit and thyroid lab testing (done at our office or elsewhere) to refill thyroid prescriptions.
