WHAT?

Conduct a thyroid function test by providing a blood sample at select Clicks Clinics. You’ll receive results within 24 hours of sending the sample to the laboratory.

WHY?

The thyroid gland produces hormones crucial for regulating various body functions, notably metabolism. These hormones convert the food you eat into energy.

WHO & WHEN?

Thyroid disorders significantly impact energy levels and mood. Hypothyroidism causes fatigue and depression, while hyperthyroidism leads to anxiety and irritability.  Doctors may recommend a thyroid function test for individuals experiencing unexplained symptoms such as:

  • Weight changes
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Heat sensitivity
  • Vision problems
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Enlarged thyroid gland

Thyroid disorders are more common in women; however, they can affect men too.  Regular thyroid function testing is advised for those with:

  • Family history of thyroid disease
  • Autoimmune diseases like type 1 diabetes or celiac disease
  • History of hyperthyroidism treatment
  • History of neck or upper chest radiation
  • Previous thyroid surgery

Individuals previously diagnosed with a thyroid disorder should undergo yearly testing for hypothyroidism and monthly testing for hyperthyroidism.
