Description:

The thyroid gland is responsible for regulating how your body uses energy.   The thyroid also produces hormones critical to proper cell and system functioning.

The Thyroid Panel screens for thyroid disease, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism by examining your body’s production of the thyroid hormones.

There are two types of thyroid disorders including:

•      Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) – symptoms may include fatigue, weight gain, a short attention span, and numbness or cold intolerance.

•      Hyperthyroidism  (overactive  thyroid)  –  symptoms  may  include  weight  loss,  persistent vomiting, increased blood pressure, hair loss or a persistently fast heart rate.

Why Do I Need It?:

Are you always tired? Does your weight fluctuate?

It may be the result of a dysfunctional thyroid. If there is a thyroid level imbalance in your body, you may be more susceptible to everything from osteoporosis and heart disease to infertility and fatigue.

Thyroid disorders are more common in women and they often occur after pregnancy and with older age. Find out now if you have hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.

Other Relevant Tests:

Customers who purchase the Thyroid Panel often choose to add the Comprehensive Male Panel or the Comprehensive Female Panel.

What Type of Physician Should You See?

You should see your primary care physician. If needed, you may be referred to an endocrinologist.
