Thyroid symptoms are not always easily resolved. Most conventional medicine practices simply bandage thyroid problems by giving you medication.

What Does a Thyroid Doctor Do?
Your Thyroid is responsible for so many different functions throughout the body. It regulates your body temperature, reproductive hormones, cholesterol levels, and so much more. To start, a thyroid doctor will run some tests to determine how much T-3 and T-4 are released into the bloodstream with a blood test. The research process may include other tests like TSH levels or other hormonal level determinations. The doctor will do a physical exam which will entail the doctor measuring your thyroid by feeling the front of your neck under your Adam’s apple. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that in some people becomes enlarged or unsymmetrical. A physical exam will determine whether that is present in your case or if there are any goiters present. Thyroid goiters develop gradually and usually accompany other thyroid symptoms like erratic moods, weight loss, bulging eyes, among other symptoms.
The doctor will also go over your full medical history and discuss your diet and lifestyle choices. Dr. Omar Akhter provides a patient-centered practice and focuses on building a relationship of respect and trust with all his patients. At Madina Medicine, we focus on helping patients take back control of their own health. 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, in turn, heal the thyroid and promote optimal wellness.
