Blood Tests – THYROID

Monitor Your Thyroid Health with Precision

At The Health Dispensary in Neath, Wales,
 we understand the importance of maintaining optimal thyroid function. The thyroid gland plays a crucial role in regulating your metabolism, energy levels, and overall well-being. Our comprehensive thyroid blood tests are designed to measure the levels of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and Free T4, providing you with a detailed picture of your thyroid health.

Why Test for TSH and Free T4?

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH):

– Indicator of Thyroid Function: TSH is produced by the pituitary gland and regulates the production of thyroid hormones. Elevated or reduced TSH levels can indicate hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).

– Early Detection is Key: Testing TSH levels helps in the early detection of thyroid disorders, which is crucial for timely intervention and management. Don’t wait for symptoms to worsen, take control of your health today.

Free T4 (Thyroxine):

– Active Hormone Measurement: Free T4 is the unbound form of thyroxine, the primary hormone produced by the thyroid gland. It is essential for maintaining metabolism, energy levels, and overall health.

– Comprehensive Assessment: Measuring Free T4 levels, alongside TSH, provides a more comprehensive assessment of thyroid function and helps in accurately diagnosing thyroid disorders.


Who Should Consider Thyroid Testing?

You might consider a thyroid blood test if you experience symptoms such as:

– Unexplained weight changes

– Fatigue or low energy levels

– Changes in heart rate

– Depression or mood swings

– Hair loss

Additionally, individuals with a family history of thyroid disorders or those taking medication affecting thyroid function should regularly monitor their thyroid health.
