Testing your thyroid levels can be simple and easy with our at home thyroid test kit. Our test kit contains a simple blood spot test. Place your order, collect your sample, mail it in…then you’ll have your results within three weeks! The thyroid is a regulating organ in the body. It releases thyroid hormones which affect body temperature, weight, growth and development, and all of the metabolic processes in the body. Generally, the two biggest issues with the thyroid are hypothyroidism (not producing enough hormones) and hyperthyroidism (producing too many hormones). In hypothyroidism, the metabolism slows which can lead to things like weight gain, fatigue, depression, hair loss and increased sensitivity to cold. In hyperthyroidism, the metabolism operates faster than it should which can lead to things like sudden weight loss, anxiety, increased appetite, and increased sensitivity to heat. TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) is what is generally tested when it comes to looking at thyroid hormones. TSH is what the pituitary gland produces to “activate” thyroid hormone production. Our home thyroid test kit looks not only at TSH levels, but also directly at T3 and T4 levels. This way we know exactly what your body is producing and can better identify where problem areas might be.
