The thyroid is a small gland responsible for producing hormones that regulate your heart rate, metabolism, and digestion. It affects nearly every part of your body, including your energy and weight. Symptoms of a thyroid problem depend on how underactive or overactive your thyroid is.
Walid Elkhalili, MD, and our team at Apex Medical Professionals can detect and treat thyroid problems early, which prevents serious complications such as heart arrhythmias and high cholesterol.
Nutritional intravenous (IV) therapy could relieve uncomfortable symptoms if you have a malfunctioning thyroid.
We offer IV infusions to improve health and energy levels and reduce under or overactive thyroid symptoms. Nutritional IV therapy enhances your health and wellness and resets your hormones to normal.
Your thyroid produces and releases essential hormones that control your growth and development, weight, appetite, and energy. The thyroid also releases calcitonin, a vital hormone that regulates calcium absorption and bone metabolism.
The thyroid hormones T3 and T4 influence nearly every part of your body, including:
Your thyroid makes extra hormones when your body needs added energy, like when you're cold or pregnant. When hormone production is off-balance, you experience a thyroid disorder.
Sometimes a thyroid disorder shows no symptoms at all. Almost 20 million Americans have thyroid disorders, but over half of them aren’t aware there’s a problem. Low energy, appetite changes, or weight fluctuations could be signs of hormone issues.
Hyperthyroidism results from an overactive thyroid. The thyroid releases a surplus of hormones, which increases your energy consumption. Hyperthyroidism symptoms include:
It’s more common for older adults to have either no symptoms or subtle ones, such as an increased heart rate, heat intolerance, and fatigue when performing routine tasks.
If your thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough of the hormones you need, you may have hypothyroidism. An underactive thyroid slows your metabolism, and you experience energy loss. Other signs of hypothyroidism include:
Anyone can develop an underactive thyroid at any age, but it most commonly affects middle-aged and older women.
Nutritional infusions are IV treatments that deliver vitamins and other nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Infusions provide a higher dose of vitamins than food or supplements, and since they go directly into your bloodstream, there’s no nutrient loss due to digestion.
IV therapy improves thyroid problems by providing extra fluids and alleviating fatigue. Symptoms of over or underactive thyroid can lead to a range of health issues, from digestion to cardiovascular problems.
Nutritional infusions provide your body with a customized combination of vitamins and other nutrients. Properly balanced hormones make you feel more energetic and relieve symptoms associated with thyroid conditions.
Almost everyone benefits from nutritional IV treatments. Signs of thyroid disorder should disappear once we rebalance your hormones to normal levels. Nutritional IV therapy boosts your immune system and can even fight the flu.
We begin your IV treatment with a personalized plan that addresses and identifies your health concerns. After Dr. Elkhalili places the IV in your arm, you can feel relief within 20 minutes as you relax in a comfortable chair. You can go about your day as usual once the infusion is complete.
