The thyroid gland is a small gland in your neck that produces hormones that help regulate your body's metabolism. Thyroid function refers to the levels of these hormones and how well they are made and utilised by the body.
The hormones produced by the thyroid gland play a crucial role in regulating many bodily functions, including heart rate, body temperature, and energy levels. If the thyroid gland is not producing enough hormone or is producing too much hormone, it can cause a wide range of symptoms and health problems.
A thyroid health blood test is necessary if you are experiencing symptoms that could be related to a thyroid disorder. The test measures several biomarkers' levels, indicating whether the thyroid gland functions correctly. Early treatment can prevent serious health complications such as heart disease, osteoporosis, or reduced fertility if a thyroid disorder is detected.
Symptoms of an underactive thyroid include weight gain, fatigue, depression, dry skin, and hair loss.
Symptoms of an overactive thyroid include weight loss, irritability, anxiety, and tremors.
Treatment for a thyroid disorder may include medication, lifestyle changes, or surgery, depending on the type and severity of the disorder.
