Male Hypothyroidism: Expert Diagnosis and Treatment in DFW
Male hypothyroidism is an incredibly troublesome illness that is far more common than men (or doctors) often expect, but treatment is available.
Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid, a butterfly-shaped gland located in front of your windpipe, fails to produce enough of certain vital hormones that are necessary for many of your bodily systems to function properly.
The poorly functioning systems present as symptoms that damage your quality of life.
In addition, male hypothyroidism is difficult to diagnose, and few hormone replacement clinics actually have the expertise to treat it effectively.
Luckily, Testosterone Centers of Texas has 2 clinics, TCT Frisco and TCT Prosper, ready and able to help with male hypothyroidism. This is in addition to our work with low testosterone and other hormone imbalances.
The Symptoms of Male Hypothyroidism
The symptoms of male hypothyroidism mimic those of many other hormone imbalances. However, there are a few symptoms rather unique to male hypothyroidism that help with diagnosis, including:
- Fatigue during the middle of the day
- Inability to concentrate and remember
- Reduced decision-making capacity
- Decreased capacity for processing stress
Identifying these symptoms can help the practitioner form a hypothesis of male hypothyroidism, and he or she can use lab tests to confirm or refute that preliminary hypothesis.
The Difficulties With Diagnosing Male Hypothyroidism
Many initial, exploratory blood tests take a broad, generalistic view of your hormone levels, often failing to catch the specific indicators of hypothyroidism.
When the more-commonly examined numbers appear normal, most medical practitioners consider this an indication that the thyroid is functioning normally.
At TCT Frisco and TCT Prosper, however, we know what to look for in the lab tests if we’ve observed the symptomatic signs of male hypothyroidism.
