Thyroid Management

The Thyroid Gland regulates major structures throughout the body including 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 underdiagnosed 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 thyroid disorders can experience an array of symptoms. Symptoms include fatigue, weight fluctuation, trouble sleeping, and temperature sensitivity, among others, and can make everyday life much more challenging. The healthcare providers at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine use a holistic approach to help patients achieve their wellness goals. It is for this reason that we offer thyroid management in Austin, alongside our physical medicine and rehabilitation services.
