Thyroid Test

It is a shocking reality that the number of cases of thyroid patients is increasing alarmingly. The doctors have revealed that newborn and infants are mostly vulnerable to suffer from this disease. Thyroid hormone helps in regulating stress levels, body’s metabolism and is responsible for producing energy in the body. Hypothyroidism is a condition when body does not produce enough of triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) hormones, which are two major hormones, in this case, the body experiences lack of energy, weight gain and depression. This calls for a need to go thyroid tests before the symptoms aggravate and give birth to other problems.

In another case, when the thyroid gland is hyperactive, it produces these hormones in excessive amount, leading to other complications such as higher levels of anxiety, weight loss, tremors etc. This condition is called hyperthyroidism. In 2004, a study has revealed that increased stress levels due to lifestyle changes is also responsible for thyroid autoimmunity. It is a common observation these days that people are becoming the victims of anxiety, stress, pain and this is one of the primary reasons responsible for aggravating hypothyroidism and infact stress can be one of the symptoms of this health issue.

However, supervision and prescription of doctors is necessary while taking anti-thyroid drugs because if they are taken in high dosage, this can lead to hypothyroidism.
