Compounded Thyroid (Bioidentical)

by Rashmi Gulati, MD

Dr. Rashmi Gulati

At Patients Medical, we regard the thyroid gland as "Metabolism Central." This butterfly-shaped gland affects energy regulation in every cell, organ and tissue in the body. It regulates temperature, metabolism, and cerebral function. It also regulates carbohydrate, lipid, and protein breakdown, and thus weight loss or weight gain, as well as causing an increase or decrease in blood cholesterol levels. Compounded thyroid medication supplements T3 and T4, corrects deficiencies of thyroid hormones as well as any receptor "interference," returning optimal metabolic function and energy levels to the body.

Thyroid hormone is protective against:

  • Fatigue
  • Low body temperature
  • Colds and other viruses
  • Weight gain
  • Dry skin
  • Headaches
  • Depression and mood swings

The Right Diagnosis and Treatment for Bioidentical Hormones

Once the comprehensive review and testing is complete, our doctors and our team of medical professionals will carefully evaluate the information we have compiled, taking into consideration any underlying contributing factors and antecedents, and formulate your diagnosis. At this point, our doctors will spend one-on-one time with you to interpret and explain your results. Together you and your practitioner will explore your goals and discuss your treatment plan options. These treatment plans can be implemented using multiple modalities such as medications, hormones, diet, supplements, behavior and lifestyle changes, and alternative therapies. Our doctors will prescribe a preventative and comprehensive treatment plan that is tailored to your needs and fits into your lifestyle.
