The thyroid is one of the most important glands in the body. Thyroid hormones influence growth, particularly in the brain, as well as weight, metabolism, and body temperature. The most commonly checked hormone when looking at thyroid health is something called TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone). TSH is released by the pituitary gland and tells the thyroid how much T3 (L-Thyroxine) and T4 (triiodo-thyronine) to produce. TSH levels drop when there is a high amount of T3 and T4, and TSH levels rise when there is a low amount of T3 and T4. T3 and T4 are the free thyroid hormones. T3 gives the most accurate representation of free thyroid hormones available. At Nutritionally Yours, we recommend you do a thyroid check at home with our blood spot test kit to look at your thyroid levels. Our test looks for TSH, Free T3, Free T4, TPO (Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies – Hashimoto’s marker), and IgF-1 (human growth hormone – shows pituitary health). Getting results is as simple as placing an order, doing the test in the comfort of your home, sending in the sample, and then receiving results within three weeks.
Many people contact us daily saying they have thyroid symptoms but there regular labs are totally normal. This is totally understandable because most clinics only run a TSH level, they do not look at Free or bio available levels of T3 and T4 so unfortunately things get missed and people suffer with symptoms and do not know why they feel so bad. If you think you have a thyroid problem give our test kit a try!
