IPSA Medical’s thyroid function blood tests

Your thyroid gland is at the base of your neck and it is responsible for producing a hormone called thyroxine. An imbalance in the thyroxine hormone can be caused by different factors such as infections, pregnancy, autoimmune conditions, dietary deficiencies and so on.

High thyroxine levels can lead to sweats, tachycardia, anxiety, diarrhoea, palpitations and sometimes to weight loss. Low thyroxine levels, on the other hand, can lead to fatigue, tiredness, weight gain, dry skin, hair loss and so on.

As disorders of the thyroid gland are quite common and can easily be managed, detecting these disorders is of paramount importance. IPSA Medical’s thyroid function tests allow your IPSA Medical practitioner to determine how well your thyroid is functioning.
