Patients Medical’s new update helps individuals experiencing thyroid-related issues such as chronic fatigue, unexplained weight gain or loss, dry skin and hair, cold intolerance, and mood swings improve their overall health. The holistic wellness center specializes in integrative medicine, which uses different scientifically-proven methods to find the root cause of the patient’s symptoms.

The thyroid regulates the production of the body’s hormones, which are essential for normal metabolic function and energy levels. When the thyroid malfunctions due to tumors, nodules, or genetic anomalies, it can cause medical conditions like goiter and Graves’ Disease and non-specific symptoms like irregular heartbeat, bloating, and insomnia.

Medication and natural hormone replacement therapy are the first-line treatments for thyroid disease, but when symptoms do not improve, surgery is often suggested as a long-term solution. However, patients need to undergo several tests to ensure that this is the best treatment option for them.

Serum testing for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroxine (T4), and triiodothyronine (T3) are recommended to create a proper treatment plan. At the holistic wellness clinic, patients are also encouraged to have the thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) stimulation test, a more comprehensive procedure that also checks the condition of the pituitary gland.

Patients Medical believes the TRH stimulation test is the best option for checking thyroid function. The process starts by drawing a blood sample to check for baseline thyroid hormones, followed by an injection of TRH to stimulate the pituitary gland. After 30 minutes, a second sample is drawn and tested to see the gland’s real-time reaction to the TRH.

“We believe we can evaluate how well the body and organs function. We can look beneath the surface and evaluate one’s metabolic state and make the necessary changes. The TRH stimulation test is a challenging test that evaluates how well one’s pituitary and thyroid glands function. But by using the TRH stimulation test, we frequently pick up the low thyroid missed by so many doctors,” a representative said.
