Have you ever wondered why you feel more fatigued and can’t do the normal things you were able to do before? Are you frustrated because you eat healthy but you are still not able to lose weight? Is your sexual desire not the same as when you were younger?
If you have answered “yes” to any of the questions above, you could have a hormone disorder. Hormones control about 90% of how our body functions. They control body temperature, weight, energy levels, sexual desire, and even sleep patterns. The pituitary gland is a gland in the brain that controls most of the hormones that our body uses to be able to work appropriately. Thyroid hormone, testosterone, estrogen, and cortisol are some of the most important hormones in the body, but there are many others. Having an adequate hormonal balance is the most important thing to keep our bodies functioning appropriately so that we can feel NORMAL.
It is important to find a doctor who understands and specializes in how hormones work and can appropriately make sure your hormones are in optimal condition.
Studies show that more than 12% of the U.S. population will develop a thyroid condition during their lifetime. It is estimated that 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease and up to 60% of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition.
Thyroid dysfunction can be diagnosed with a series of specific blood tests that can let your doctor know what type of treatment you need. Identifying abnormal symptoms of thyroid disease is the most important thing.
Some of the most common symptoms are weight gain, fatigue, intolerance of heat or cold temperatures, palpitations, constipation or diarrhea, infertility, among many others.
Contact us today if you have experienced any of the above symptoms or if you are wondering if you could have a thyroid condition. Every patient is different and it is important to consider this in determining if your blood work is normal but not adequate for your age. We can check if your thyroid hormones are balanced or if you need treatment and optimization of all of your hormones. We want to help you feel well and like yourself again!
Diabetes is one of the major causes of early illness and death worldwide. Type 2 diabetes affects approximately 8% of the US population and 6% worldwide. The incidence increases with increasing age and every year more people are diagnosed with the condition. Undetected diabetes may be as high as 50% in some areas and most of the time it presents no symptoms. Some studies have shown that some patients may have diabetes for up to 5 years before they are even diagnosed. Early detection of elevated blood sugars is important to prevent long-term complications from diabetes and is the key to maintaining a good quality of life. Achieving optimal control of the patient’s blood sugars minimizes the risk of heart attack, stroke, recurrent infections, kidney problems, foot ulcers, blindness, among many others.
Diet and weight loss are important components in the treatment of diabetes and being on the right medication regimen is crucial to prevent worsening of the patient’s overall health. However, diabetes medications, especially insulin, make it difficult for some patients to lose weight.
The doctors at Bella Mia Medical specialize not only in screening for diabetes but also in managing your medications to treat this condition effectively and with the least amount of side effects. With our board-certified endocrinologist, we specialize in weight loss programs to help you lose weight and bring your blood sugars to the goal. Every patient is unique and we try to put together a regimen that works according to the patient’s needs, lifestyle, and eating patterns.
Come see us today to see how we can help you take control of your diabetes and improve your quality of life while eating healthy foods and living a normal life.
"Best all around in Tampa Bay for laser services and cosmetic procedures. Their personalization for each client is hard to top. Both doctors take the time to know each patients concerns and goals in order to provide results."- D.M. / Google / Feb 04, 2021
"Dr Panchal is AMAZING!! Friends from Virginia and Vermont (yes, they travel just to see her!) recommended her to me and now I drive a couple of hours to see her as well. She’s professional, efficient, and friendly. Here’s a confidence builder - if the procedure isn’t for you, she will tell you! She WANTS to help; WANTS you to love the results. If you’re looking for someone who will tell you the truth and help you find what you really need, go see see Dr Panchal. You won’t be disappointed!! I recommend her to everyone. I’m certain she will have more people traveling to see her. Get in while you can!"- R.S. / Google / Feb 03, 2021
"I’ve been going to Bella Mia for over a year and I’ve loved every experience ! From hydrofacials, to laser hair removal, to fillers, they do such an AMAZING job. Special shout out to Dr. Panchal and Juliana, I started out with them and they make ever experience so great that out of all places in Tampa and all giveaways etc, I’ll always come back to Bella Mia. Side note: I’ve had other cosmetic procedures elsewhere where they’ve used topical anesthetics and they never really work for me. I almost passed out from microneedling somewhere else! I love Bella Mia because Dr. Panchal uses a dental block to do lip fillers and I don’t feel a THING! I even have my boyfriend obsessed with self-care here! Best Med spa I’ve ever been to!"- S.C. / Yelp / Jan 28, 2021
"Dr Panchel is amazing! These ladies are rock stars! I can't imagine going anywhere else to feel better and look better! They have the latest technology, skin care and most of all ... they listen to your personal challenges and goals, and amazingly they can show you realistic ways to get you up and running. I cannot thank them enough. This is the place to visit for those items you weren't sure to ask about,, etc. Personally, 55 years old, and the hormone replacement therapy is life changing. The other fabulous menu items are a plus. Facials, laser, they keep adding lol, seriously these ladies are fairy God mothers. I'm so lucky and grateful."- B.D. / Google / Nov 14, 2020
"Amazing Doctors and staff... My daughter recommended Bella Mia and at first I was a bit skeptical as it is an hour drive for me, but I’m so glad I gave them a try. I was pleasantly surprise after just two visits. I had Botox treatment, fillers and a facial laser treatment and wow!!! What a difference. I’ve gotten so many compliments already. My husband told me I look ten years younger. The entire staff at Bella mia medical is very knowledgeable, personable, and truly raises the bar of professionalism compared to any spa or plastic surgeons I’ve been to in the past. Thank you Bella Mia 🌸"- A.M. / Google / Nov 12, 2020
