Thyroid dysfunction often includes an array of frustrating symptoms like mood swings, depression, heart palpitations, weight loss or gain, and much more. What may be making it even more frustrating is the medications you were prescribed merely mask some of the symptoms not assessing the cause. Dr. Omar Akhter at Madina Medicine in Austin, Texas, provides healthcare so different from conventional practices. His holistic patient-centered approach provides the attention and care needed to help you resolve your thyroid issues. He is board-certified in Internal Medicine and is a functional medicine doctor.
What Does a Thyroid Doctor Do?
The Thyroid gland helps with various jobs through the body like body temperature, hormones, cholesterol levels, reproductive health, and much more. A thyroid doctor usually begins by spending time with you to learn about your family history and current lifestyle. They will likely coordinate some blood tests to determine how much T-3, T-4, and TSH is released in your bloodstream. Other physical exams are performed to measure thyroid like measuring its size and also determining whether goiters are present. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the front of your neck under your Adam’s apple. Thyroid goiters can develop gradually over time and usually are accompanied by other thyroid symptoms like weight loss and gain, erratic moods, bulging eyes, along additional symptoms.
Dr. Omar Akhter’s approach is patient-centered as he focuses on building relationships of mutual trust and respect for all his patients. At Madina Medicine, we put our heart and soul into helping patients take control of their own health back. This world is full of misinformation and it’s important to us that we spend the needed time to educate our patients on the right way to care for themselves holistically. Our belief is that if you take care of the whole body the thyroid will also heal as the whole body achieves optimal wellness.
