This test examines your thyroid function and helps you determine whether your symptoms are caused by a thyroid disorder, such as an over-active(Hyper) or under-active(Hypo) thyroid. It also determines whether you are getting enough of the nutrients required for a healthy thyroid or whether your symptoms are caused by a lack of key vitamins and minerals.
Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) 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 must be closely monitored to ensure that your thyroid hormone levels are at their peak. We help you understand how to support your thyroid function by providing a GP report and advice on how to maintain or improve your results.
If you have an under-active or over-active thyroid, we recommend getting a thyroid blood test every three months.
