      Thyroid Hormone Therapy in Bloomington MN

      Have you been exhausted, moody, or forgetful lately? Gaining or losing weight without changing your diet or exercise routine? Feeling colder or hotter than everyone else in the room?

      You may have an imbalance of the thyroid gland – that small but mighty butterfly-shaped organ at the bottom of your neck. It releases thyroid hormone into your bloodstream to control your energy, metabolism, temperature, sleep, digestion, sexual function, even hair and nail growth.

      When your thyroid gland produces too much or too little thyroid hormone all these functions get disrupted, and you start searching for a healer.

      Mainstream endocrinologists often administer a standard thyroid hormone level test and make a determination based on what, decades ago, was labeled a “normal” range.

      At One Agora we don’t dictate what’s “normal” for your body. We work to achieve your unique optimal level. For us “normal” means symptom-free.

      Many conventional healthcare providers will not test you for antibodies, which they believe will never change.

      At One Agora we know it’s important to detect antibodies – indicators of autoimmunity. They alert us to treat not only your thyroid, but the root cause of your immune dysfunction. We know that antibodies can change, and we’ll treat and monitor you until they do.

      Many conventionally trained doctors will tell you that once you start taking thyroid medication, you will be on it for life.

      At One Agora we beg to differ. We test and target all root causes behind each patient’s metabolic challenges often resolving them completely.

      Every thyroid is different and at One Agora, so is every treatment.

      So when you’re too exhausted to work, or looking for things to do when you can’t sleep, read more about One Agora’s treatment approach. If you want to feel like yourself again, call us at (952) 234-5898 or contact us online.

      What can Thyroid Hormone Therapy do for me?

      If your thyroid gland can’t produce the amount of thyroid hormone your body requires, you may struggle with:

      • weight gain or loss
      • hair loss
      • fatigue
      • depression, anxiety or irritability
      • brain fog or memory impairment
      • insomnia
      • constipation
      • neck swelling
      • dry, brittle nails
      • hot and cold flashes
      • abnormal periods
      • water retention
      • high blood cholesterol
      • frequent colds and infections
      • hand numbness
      • carpal tunnel syndrome

      To discover the root causes behind these symptoms we’ll perform a comprehensive thyroid panel testing for: TSH, T3, T4, free T3, free T4, reverse T3 and antibodies. Then, we will target each cause with treatments until you’ve conquered each symptom and.

      Custom Treatment Options at Agora Health

      To accomplish long term thyroid health we tap all treatment options: medication, supplementation, medical nutrition, and lifestyle management.

      We specialize in treating autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Grave’s disease by uncovering the source of your antibodies.

      We encourage all thyroid patients to eat a thyroid support diet including: thiamine rich foods (asparagus, Brussels sprouts, spinach, sesame and sunflower seeds, pistachios, ground flaxseed, and herring); vitamin B rich foods (grass fed beef, sardines, tuna, lamb, raw milk, eggs, salmon); probiotic foods (kefir, kombucha, cultured vegetables, kvass, raw cheese, natto).

      Choosing a stress management technique that works for you, and spending time exercising outdoors is also critical for your hormone health. Your efforts will enhance our treatments.

      We’ve balanced the immune systems of many patients by delivering Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Therapy which:

      • increases endogenous endorphin production
      • reduces inflammation
      • promotes DNA synthesis
      • slows down GI tract motility

      Other patients respond better to one of more of these thyroid supplements:

      • synthetic T4: like levothyroxine or Synthroid
      • synthetic T3: like liothyronine or Cytomel
      • bioidentical T4 and T3: combinations customized for you by a compounding pharmacy
      • natural desiccated thyroid: porcine derived thyroid formulas like NatureThroid and WestThroid
