Hormone Optimization

Desiccated Thyroid

Desiccated thyroid is a combination of hormones that are normally produced by the thyroid gland to regulate your body's energy and metabolism. We prescribe desiccated thyroid when the thyroid does not produce enough of this hormone on its own. Low or suboptimal thyroid levels are a common cause of fatigue, weight gain, foggy headedness, and a decline in mood. By restoring thyroid levels to the optimal range where people function best, these symptoms can be alleviated, helping people feel like themselves again. Desiccated thyroid extract has been used since the late 1800s and has the advantage of containing both T4 and T3 hormone, which is what we make naturally. It’s considered to be bio-identical because it is molecularly identical to our own thyroid hormone.

*Desiccated thyroid is considered an “off-label” medication because it is not FDA approved.
