Checking the Thyroid level can be an important part of a health regime and the first step to further investigation if results indicate anything under-active. Hypothyroidism can start slowly with no immediate symptoms until it has advanced. Obvious symptoms displayed include:
The thyroid is a gland that produces hormones and releases them into the bloodstream that controls the rate at which the body uses and stores energy from the food we eat, also known as the metabolic rate.
A TSH level higher than 5μIU/mL indicates a higher-than-normal level and the possibility of an underactive thyroid.
The test provides results based on a Positive/Higher or Negative/Normal basis. Positive results can then be used to request a secondary test or consult further medical advice.
