Hashimoto Thyroiditis Symptoms

Hashimoto Thyroiditis Symptoms

Hashimoto Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder that causes chronic inflammation of the thyroid. It’s the leading cause of hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid. The thyroid is a gland located in the neck that is responsible for producing hormones that regulate everything from your energy levels and temperature regulation to weight gain. It’s important to recognize the warning signs of Hashimoto Thyroiditis in St. Louis, MO, so that you can turn to our holistic doctor, Dr. Tipu Sultan MD, for a proper evaluation and treatment plan to get your symptoms under control.

What are the signs and symptoms of Hashimoto Thyroiditis?

Also referred to a Hashimoto’s disease, this autoimmune disorder may present with these signs and symptoms:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss
  • Dry skin
  • Brittle nails
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Joint and muscle aches
  • Depression
  • Constipation
  • Unexplained tiredness

It’s important that you turn to our medical team if you are experiencing symptoms of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. After all, untreated Hashimoto’s can lead to more serious health problems.

While there are many factors and conditions that can lead to fatigue and tiredness, it’s important to rule out thyroid conditions. A simple thyroid function test can tell Dr. Sultan MD if you have this disease.

What is a holistic approach to treating Hashimoto thyroiditis?

Modern medicine often focuses on treating the symptoms rather than the person as a whole. This is much different from a holistic way of healing, which focuses on a whole-body approach to healing that looks at all aspects of a person, from their diet to their environment. We try to understand why you’ve developed this autoimmune disease and from there determine the safest and most effective ways to manage it.  Dr. Sultan MD also takes lifestyle and dietary factors into account when treating this condition, which is something other medical doctors may not.

While most doctors will prescribe a synthetic thyroid hormone medication, often this medication leads to inadequate relief. Instead, we will focus on ways to improve your health and symptoms through lifestyle changes and nutritional supplementation.

If you are experiencing symptoms of Hashimoto Thyroiditis in St. Louis, MO, Dr. Sultan MD and the team at Environmental Health Center are here to provide you with a comprehensive and holistic approach to care that is safe and effective. To schedule an evaluation, call us at (314) 921-5600.
