Many patients come to us feeling tired, irritable, or concerned about hair loss, convinced they are suffering from a hormonal imbalance. Though hormones are a possible culprit for these symptoms, (and we do effectively diagnose and treat hormonal imbalances with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy), we want to point out another possible concern that could be flying under your radar—namely, a vitamin deficiency.
At Atagi Plastic Surgery and Skin Aesthetics, we screen for vitamin deficiencies to help you achieve wellness inside and out. For example, iron plays a vital role in your health by maintaining a healthy level of hemoglobin in your blood, a protein in our red blood cells that carries oxygen to our tissues. Iron is also critical to your thyroid, which helps to regulate your metabolism, heart and digestive function, and energy. If low iron turns out to be your concern, we can help you get back up to speed with supplements. Vitamin B12 is essential to maintaining energy, metabolism, and much more. Based on your screening results, we can support you with iron or B12 supplements.
We also offer supplementation for deficiencies in vitamins A, D3 and K2. Vitamin A is vital to your vision, immunity, heart and kidney function, while vitamin D3 is essential for maintaining strong bones and teeth, as well as cardiovascular health. Did you know that vitamin K2 is a vital addition to D3? Research indicates that vitamins D3 and K2 form a symbiotic relationship by enhancing calcium absorption and improving cardiovascular health.
If a vitamin deficiency is detected during our screening, we offer clinically-backed formulations that are easy to incorporate into your daily regimen.
