Is a Thyroid test right for you?

You should use our Thyroid Check if you are concerned you may have a thyroid disorder, have afamily history of a thyroid disorder, or are on treatment for a thyroid disorder and need to monitoryour thyroid hormone levels. One of the thyroid’s functions is to produce thyroxine, a hormone thathelps regulate the body's metabolism (the process that turns food into energy). Hyperthyroidism(an overactive thyroid) occurs when the body produces too much thyroxine. Hypothyroidism (an underactivethyroid) occurs when the body does not produce enough thyroxine. Our at-home Thyroid Check kit will letyou know if your thyroid gland is functioning within normal parameters, and can pick up a thyroid disorderbefore you develop any symptoms of a condition.
