What We Do
We look at your thyroid system meticulously to give you the right diagnosis and an individualized treatment program that will make you feel at your best and reach perfect thyroid balance. Your treatment will be individualized based on your symptoms, exam and blood tests. The goal is to mimic what your thyroid gland normally does, but it does not end there. We also provide treatment and monitoring of thyroid cancer.
Weight Loss Management
We look for the core reason for the weight gain. If you have become overweight, regardless of the reason, you are certainly suffering from a multi-hormonal disorder which is the consequence of the weight gain. You will be given dietary guidelines according to the Thyrolife Protein Boost Diet, designed by Ridha Arem M.D. to help you reverse these hormone malfunctions. The result is, successful weight loss and optimal health.
We will individualize your hormonal treatment needs based on your symptoms and hormone levels. We use bioidentical hormones (the same hormone molecules that your body naturally produces) in the right form. We prescribe both a pharmaceutical form of bioidentical hormones or compounded forms of bioidentical hormone depending on your individual needs.
We have a special interest in detecting and diagnosing other endocrine disorders (hormonal disorders) other than thyroid malfunctions. Are you suffering from chronic fatigue? This could be caused by adrenal insufficiency or growth hormone deficiency. Growth hormone deficiency in adults can cause: fatigue, weight gain, irritability, depressive symptoms, and metabolic syndrome.
