Disorders of the thyroid gland

The thyroid gland is a hormone-producing gland located at the front of the throat. The role of the gland is to control some important functions of the body, such as metabolism, heat production and heart rate.

Thyroid problems affect women more than men and can have a major impact on hair and lead to female pattern baldness.

Thyroid problems often appear in middle age or after pregnancy.

The thyroid gland is controlled by the hormones TSH, T4 and T3. To determine whether the client has an excess or an underproduction of thyroid hormones, a blood test is taken.

We can do this on-site at one of our clinics and you will receive an answer within a few days of the blood sample being taken.

Hypothyroidism - underproduction of thyroid hormone

The most common thyroid disorder is hypothyroidism. When this happens, the thyroid gland underproduces important hormones that are essential for the body’s cells and organs.

Symptoms can be vague and vary from person to person despite the major impact thyroid disorders have on the body.

In hypothyroidism, low T4 levels and high TSH levels appear in the blood test.

Common symptoms of hypothyroidism

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Low body temprature
  • Low pulse
  • Depression
  • Disruptions in the menstrual cycle
  • Bad memory

Hyperthyroidism - overproduction of the thyroid gland

It is also possible to have an overproduction of thyroid hormone in the body. Then you suffer from hyperthyroidism.

Hyperthyroidism is indicated by low TSH levels. This means that the thyroid gland is overactive in its production of the hormones T4 and T3.

Symptoms of hyperthyroidism

  • Feelings of stress
  • Heart palpitations
  • Sweating
  • Weight loss
  • Inner turmoil

PRP and thyroid disorders

Those who have the right medication for their thyroid problems before starting PRP treatment have had very promising results.

However, if you have suffered from severe hair loss, we recommend a hair transplant.

If you have severe thyroid dysfunction, PRP treatment is not recommended until you have received the right treatment for your condition. This is to ensure that you get the best results.

In severe cases of thyroid disorders, PRP will be so effective. It may help to some extent, but the overriding factor (the thyroid disease) will outweigh the positive effect of PRP.
