Advanced Thyroid Care
What is Thyroid?
The thyroid gland is present in front of your neck. It produces hormones that play a crucial role in carrying out various metabolic processes, growth and development in individuals. There are two types of thyroid disorders. The first one is hyperthyroidism that results in an increased or overproduction of thyroid hormones, while the second one is hypothyroidism that is caused due to insufficient production of thyroid hormones.
A thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test is carried out to measure the amount of TSH in your body, which is one of the direct measures of the effective functioning of the thyroid gland.
What is the main cause of thyroid problems?
Thyroid problems can result from iodine deficiency to inflammation of the gland due to a bacterial or viral attack. It is also common for autoimmune diseases to cause thyroid problems as the immune cells can attack the thyroid gland as well. For example, hyperthyroidism can be caused due to Grave’s disease while Hashimoto’s syndrome can cause hypothyroidism.
Also, the intake of certain medicines can lead to a defect in the normal thyroid hormone levels.
What does an advanced thyroid test include?
An advanced thyroid test involves collecting a blood sample to check your thyroid hormones. The analysis includes the following:
Thyroid stimulating hormone test: As mentioned earlier, the levels of TSH in your body determine the proper functioning of the thyroid gland. Thus, depending on the levels of TSH, you will be diagnosed with either hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.
Antibodies test: To drive thyroid treatments in the right direction, it is important to narrow down the actual cause of the problem. Since thyroid problems caused due to autoimmune disorders require more care and different treatment procedures, an advanced thyroid test includes a thyroid antibody test. This test checks and measures if your body has produced antibodies against your thyroid glands.
These antibodies attack an enzyme called Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) and TSH that helps the gland produce hormones. Due to this, the thyroid antibody test is also commonly known as the anti-TPO test.
What are the early warning signs of thyroid problems?
If you show any of the following symptoms, then it is the right time to get your thyroid checked to start treatments immediately. Here are the early signs of thyroid problems:
- Unusual tiredness and weakness of body
- Sudden loss or gain in your body weight
- Increased temperature sensitivity
- Excessive hair loss
- Irregular menstrual cycle
