Goals of Hormone Replacement Therapy
Thyroid Hormone helps the body convert food into energy and heat, regulates body temperature and impacts many other hormonal systems in the body.
· Thyroxine—an inactive form that is produced by the thyroid gland and converted to T3 in other areas of the body
· Triiodothyronine (T3) the active form.
The roles of thyroid hormone and cortisol and consideration of their impact on multiple body systems is emerging as a critical component of balanced hormone replacement for men and women.
