Thyroid Doctor in Cedar Park, TX

Your thyroid is such an important organ. It is responsible for regulating things like hormones, blood pressure, body temperature, and so much more. When thyroid dysfunction occurs symptoms are not always easily resolved. Most conventional medicine practices simply bandage thyroid problems by giving you a prescription to take the rest of your life. This only leaves you with some relief and fails to address the root issue of your thyroid dysfunction. Finding a provider who takes the time to research the true cause of your issues will help you not only heal your thyroid but promote wellness throughout your whole body.

What Does a Thyroid Doctor Do? 

Because your thyroid is responsible for so many different functions throughout the body, it’s important to make sure it’s working correctly. It not only regulates your body temperature, and reproductive hormones but manages your cholesterol levels as well as many other vital processes. Initially, a thyroid doctor may run tests to determine how much T-3 and T-4 are released into the bloodstream.  They may also test various hormone levels and your TSH levels as well. The doctor will do a physical exam which will entail taking measurements of your thyroid gland by feeling the front of your neck under your Adam’s apple. This butterfly-shaped gland may become enlarged or unsymmetrical and need further testing. A physical exam will determine whether that is present in your case or if there are any goiters present as well. Thyroid goiters develop gradually and usually accompany other thyroid symptoms like mood changes, weight loss, bulging eyes, among other symptoms.  

After conducting the physical examination, the doctor will also go over your full medical history and discuss your current diet and lifestyle choices. Dr. Omar Akhter provides a patient-centered practice where a focus on patient trust and respect is the utmost priority. At Madina Medicine, we focus on helping patients take back control of their own health through proper healthcare techniques in which the patient is the number one focus. In a world full of misinformation, we spend the time to teach patients how to care for themselves holistically. We believe that if you treat the whole body right, you will heal the thyroid and promote overall wellness throughout the body.
