Thyroid care at home
What is Thyroid?
Thyroid is an endocrine gland that secretes multiple vital hormones that are collectively called as the thyroid hormone. It is butterfly-shaped and is located in the base of your neck. The most important hormones secreted by the thyroid gland are tetraiodothyronine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). T4 is also commonly referred to as the thyroxine hormone which plays a significant role in metabolism and development. When normal TSH levels or T3 and T4 levels undergo a significant change, thyroid disorders occur, making thyroid care extremely essential to our well-being. Sometimes, this may be minimal, and could be subclinical. Thyroid symptoms can range from a weak immune system and deficiency in iodine to inflammation of the thyroid gland. Sometimes, even during pregnancy, you are prone to get thyroid disorders.
In case you notice symptoms like weakness and fatigue, irregular menstruation, insomnia, low mood or hair fall, you should speak to a general physician in Gurgaon. After analysing your symptoms, they may refer you to a thyroid specialist if it seems to be related to the thyroid. An endocrinologist in Gurgaon will then prescribe a thyroid blood test after a consultation to confirm the diagnosis.
With mfine’s thyroid test at home, all you have to do is book a test, and one of our lab partners will arrive at your doorstep to pick up your samples.
What is thyroid disease?
Hyperthyroidism: Hyperthyroidism is a condition when your thyroid produces an excess of hormones, and consequently, the T3 and T4 levels increase. In some cases, patients exhibit an excess of both. It is characterized by low TSH, suggestive of overstimulation of the thyroid gland. It occurs more commonly in women and is mostly passed down genetically. If you are diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, you should consult a thyroid specialist for hyperthyroidism treatment.
Hypothyroidism: Contrary to hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism is a condition when the thyroid gland is underactive and does not secrete the normal amount of thyroid hormones. It is characterized by high TSH levels. This leads to a drop in metabolism and body functions. Typical symptoms of low thyroid levels include an intolerance to cold, low mood and fatigue accompanied by muscle and joint pain. Hypothyroidism medication is essential to control the disorder and prevent it from worsening.
Goitre: Goitre is when your neck swells up due to inflammation of the thyroid gland. Other symptoms of goiter include discomfort while swallowing and breathing, coughing, a tight sensation in the throat and light-headedness while raising arms above the head. A goiter is usually painless, but a large one can cause discomfort and will need a doctor’s immediate attention. Consult an endocrinologist in Gurgaon if you experience these symptoms since a small goiter can become larger and cause disruptions.
When to take thyroid test?
If you find that you are presenting symptoms of thyroid disorders, you should take a thyroid blood test. Thyroid symptoms include fatigue, depression, weakness, weight loss and inflammation of the thyroid gland. Thyroid diagnosis is typically done by measuring the TSH, T3 and T4 levels in the body. More often, the TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) levels are measured. TSH is secreted by the pituitary gland and stimulates the thyroid gland to secrete other important thyroid hormones, which is maintaining normal TSH levels is extremely vital.
What does a thyroid test include?
Our thyroid care health package includes a series of blood tests that checks the T3 and T4 levels in the body, and if there are normal TSH levels. This will reveal if your thyroid is underactive or overactive. An endocrinologist in Gurgaon will get in touch with you for a consultation after the samples of your thyroid blood test have been collected. The analysis includes the following:
Thyroid stimulating hormone test: It’s important that you have a normal TSH level, since this determines whether or not your bodily functioning is regulated. Based on the results of your thyroid check up, a thyroid specialist in Gurgaon will prescribe hypothyroidism medication for high TSH treatment.
FT3 and FT4 test: These tests are usually taken together. Based on the T3 and T4 levels in the body, an endocrinologist in Gurgaon will be able to diagnose your symptoms and prescribe the proper thyroid disease treatment.

Who should take these tests?

Do I need to practice fasting before the blood test?
A thyroid test at home requires fasting before blood test followed by a sample collection. Thyroid test fasting is practiced to ensure accurate results. Thus, once you book a thyroid blood test, you will be required to keep a gap of 10-12 hours between your last meal and the time of your scheduled tests.

Do I need a doctor’s prescription for the tests?
A thyroid checkup test does not require a doctor’s prescription since it is taken for the purpose of early detection of any abnormalities. However we recommend seeing a thyroid specialist before availing a thyroid care health package so that they may understand your symptoms better first.
