Optimize your thyroid health with our Thyroid TSH Test
The thyroid plays a crucial role in the body’s metabolism and interacts with many of our bodily functions and organs. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is formed in the brain’s pituitary gland and is responsible for stimulating the thyroid to release thyroxine (T4). Thyroxine serves as a prohormone for triiodothyronine (T3). To produce thyroxine, the amino acid tyrosine and iodine are required.
Hypothyroidism, an underproduction of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4, can lead to a slow metabolism and other issues. This condition is common, and many people live with the disease throughout their lives. On the other hand, hyperthyroidism, an overproduction of thyroid hormones, can cause the opposite effect. An imbalance in the thyroid can lead to both physical and mental problems and can result from both underproduction and overproduction of thyroid hormones. Underproduction is the most common form and affects the majority of people. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, lack of energy, cognitive impairment, depression, dry skin, hair loss, and weight gain. Detecting elevated TSH levels early on allows for correction of thyroid disorders before more serious health problems arise. With our rapid thyroid test, you can quickly determine if you suffer from hypothyroidism. A value above 5 μIU/ml provides a positive result and indicates that you should seek medical attention for further investigation.
Symptoms of Hypothyroidism:
- Lack of energy
- Feeling cold
- Weight gain
- Slow pulse
- Dry skin
- Brittle nails
- Hair loss
- Weak memory
Improve Your Thyroid Function
The thyroid regulates the body’s metabolism through various reactions in the body’s cells. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) stimulates the production of thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). The thyroid hormones interact with TSH through a feedback system, which means that sufficient levels of T3/T4 inhibit the production of TSH in the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland functions as the gas and brake pedal for hormone production.
A fast or slow metabolism is influenced both by hereditary factors and the production of thyroid hormones. A healthy metabolism burns calories and fat and provides energy to your cells to perform essential functions that keep you healthy. When your thyroid is imbalanced and not functioning correctly, your metabolism is also negatively affected. A decreased metabolism means that your body doesn’t burn fat and calories as it should.
An imbalance in the thyroid can also affect other endocrine systems, such as the ovaries and adrenal glands. It is important to identify the root cause of the symptoms you are experiencing. Imbalances in the thyroid, especially underproduction, are often linked to intestinal inflammation. These inflammations negatively impact the body’s detoxification process and hinder the elimination of toxins from the body.
The causes of hypothyroidism can be various, including inadequate production of thyroid hormone, lack of iodine, or other essential nutrients crucial for the thyroid. The disease can also be related to hereditary factors. Hypothyroidism can also be a result of chronic inflammation in the thyroid, leading to the production of antibodies that damage the thyroid. Additionally, pregnancy and menopause can affect thyroid hormone production.
