Do you have Signs of Hypothyroidism?
IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you are reading this, you must suspect you have a medical problem related to thyroid. If you have not been tested or are not receiving treatment, we urge you to see a doctor very, very soon. Low thyroid not only affects the quality of your life, but those unwanted symptoms can be life-threatening.
More than 30 percent of women over the age of 35 struggle with symptoms of thyroid disorder. And women are 10 times more likely than men to have a thyroid problem. According to recent studies, more than 27 million adult Americans have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and many patients live for years with its dangerous and unwanted symptoms.
A low level of thyroid hormone negatively affects your whole body. And if hypothyroidism is not treated, it can cause dangerously high blood pressure and raise your cholesterol levels, increase your likelihood of diabetes, heart attack, stroke or congestive heart failure.
Diagnosis is the first step into a life free of dangerous and unwanted symptoms.
At Praxis, we run simple, painless lab tests to determine your level of deficiency. We prescribe through one of America’s leading compound pharmacies to create hormones that exactly match those produced in your own body. Medical intervention can balance and optimize your hormone levels, restoring you to health and wellness.

Hypothyroidism or “underactive thyroid” means your thyroid gland is not making enough thyroid hormone. We simply supplement what your body is unable to produce on its own, eliminating those unwanted symptoms you’ve been suffering.*
How is thyroid function tested?
Screening for hypothyroidism involves a blood test that measures thyroid hormone (thyroxine, or T4) and serum TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) levels. The blood draw is done in our office and takes only a few minutes. The clinic will call you with the lab results within a matter of hours. Hypothyroidism is often suspected when TSH levels are above normal and T4 levels are below normal. Always consult your doctor for a diagnosis.
Hypothyroidism may be present during pregnancy. Many symptoms are similar to pregnancy symptoms.
