If you've not been feeling like yourself, a thyroid issue could be at the root cause. Thyroid issues can be hard to notice and even harder to pinpoint. As a regulator of hormones, a thyroid imbalance can cause weight gain, fatigue, dry skin, and muscle weakness. The Thyroid TSH Test offers a rare view into this often overlooked but important part of the body.
The Thyroid Health Test checks thyroid stimulating hormone, which can indicate the relative health of your thyroid. The results can empower you to find ways to better support your thyroid, which in turn can help with hormone rebalancing.
TSH or Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine, and then triiodothyronine which stimulates the metabolism of almost every tissue in the body.
TSH or Thyroid-stimulating hormone is made in a gland in the brain called the pituitary. When thyroid levels in your body are low, the pituitary gland makes more TSH. When thyroid levels are high, the pituitary gland makes less TSH. TSH levels that are too high or too low can indicate your thyroid isn't working correctly.
The Thyroid TSH test uses the relationship between TSH and the thyroid to assess overall thyroid health. The results can help you find ways to boost thyroid function to support metabolism, energy levels, and body temperature.
