Thyroid Disorders

The Thyroid Gland regulates major structures throughout the body, affecting the immune system, nervous system, cholesterol, fat and growth hormones. Approximately 30 million Americans are living with thyroid disorders, but roughly 50% of those cases are either under diagnosed or misdiagnosed. Types of thyroid disorders include hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, goiters, nodules and cancer. 

Because of the wide-ranging impact of the thyroid on the body, those affected by these disorders can experience different symptoms. Symptoms include fatigue, weight fluctuation and temperature sensitivity, among others, and can make everyday life more challenging. The team at Austin Preferred strives to help patients achieve a broad range of wellness goals. As such, we offer thyroid testing and management in addition to our physical medicine and rehabilitation services. 

Treatment of Thyroid Disorders:

At Austin Preferred, the medical providers seek to discover the root of our patients’ thyroid issues. An accurate diagnosis is achieved through test methods including medical history exams, physical exams, blood testing, image scans and/or biopsy. Our staff works closely with patients to pinpoint the causes of their issues and treat them efficiently and effectively. Our holistic medical services provider will provide the appropriate medication, if necessary, or refer patients to a specialist for further procedures.

We recommend visiting the American Thyroid Institute for more information on the causes and symptoms of the various disorders mentioned here.
