How can a thyroid blood test help you?
This test checks your thyroid function and helps you understand if your symptoms might be due to a thyroid disorder, like an overactive or underactive thyroid. It also checks to see if you’re getting enough of the nutrients needed for a healthy thyroid or whether your symptoms may be due to key vitamins and minerals deficiencies.
An underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) could explain :
- weight loss or weight gain
- shaking and tremors
- increased irritability, anxiety, or depression
- fatigue and lack of energy
- muscle aches, cramps, or weakness
- low sex drive (libido)
- irregular or heavy periods
Once diagnosed, your thyroid function needs to be monitored to ensure your thyroid hormone levels are optimal. With a GP report and advice on how to maintain or improve your results, we help you understand how to support your thyroid function.
We recommend doing a thyroid blood test every 3 months if you have an underactive or overactive thyroid.
