About test

Your thyroid is one of the most important glands in your body. A wide range of factors, from hormone imbalances to mineral deficiencies and environmental pollutants can interfere with your thyroid’s abilities, leading to health problems. As many as 60% of people with thyroid disease are not aware of their condition, and women are seven times more likely than men to develop thyroid problems. Early testing will help you to avoid major problems, and address such symptoms as weight gain, low energy, memory lapses, itchy skin, brittle hair and nails, hair loss, irregular bowel habits, and menstrual irregularities.
