The thyroid gland, located in the neck, is a major player in regulating a man's
metabolism. By using iodine, the thyroid gland produces a hormone called thyroid
hormone, which acts at many sites in the body to modulate rate of metabolism, growth,
and rate of function of many systems in the body.
Thyroid hormone comes in two flavors: T3 and T4. T3 is much more active than T4,
but T4 levels are usually about ten times higher than levels of T3. Although T4
levels are higher, tissues that respond to thyroid hormone normally convert the
T4 to the more active T3.
Many factors can cause low or high levels of thyroid hormone in men, and as a result
several potentially severe problems and symptoms can occur. Our doctors can help
you with whatever hormone imbalance you have with our Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
