Who should take the test?
You are suffering from arrhythmia, infertility, depressive moods, fatigue or weight changes? So far, it was not possible to determine the root causes of your health issues? Then it might make sense for your to check your thyroid and thyroid hormones.
The thyroid significantly impacts our well-being. It produces the hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), that are responsible for our metabolism and target almost all body tissues. Thus, a disfunction (such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism) can equally have a negative effect on the wellbeing of your entire body.
With our Thyroid Test your thyroid status will be determined based on the following markers:
- free T3
- free T4
How does it work?
You collect a dried blood spot sample from the comfort of your home, send it to our lab and will receive the lab results, including detailed information about your thyroid hormones.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
After the analysis of the 4 thyroid markers was conducted, you will receive a lab report with detailed explanations about the function of the thyroid gland, thyroid hormones as well as information about possible symptoms that can occur when there is an imbalance. Further to that, we always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner.
Although we do not offer medical advice ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions?
