Do You Think You Have Thyroid Problems?
If you experience tiredness, weight gain and feel cold all the time, you may have an under-active thyroid (hypothyroidism) – or in case of sleeping difficulties, weight loss and fast heart rate, you may have an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism).
However, in many cases, the symptoms are vague and thyroid diseases do not go diagnosed. If a thyroid disease is not treated, the symptoms will persist and could grow to more severe levels.
A blood test is the most common method to diagnose thyroid diseases. Such a test will identify certain hormone and antibody levels and indicate whether you suffer from hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.
How Can You Test Your Blood?
We notice a rising awareness of thyroid disease and people increasingly investigate the condition of their thyroid. At Beyond Nutrition in Dubai we are specialized in testing blood and have conducted a many thyroid tests. The process is simple:
- Book an appointment at our Dubai JLT clinic and our licensed, experienced nurse will take a blood sample which will be sent to the lab the same day. The whole process will take around 10 minutes. We can also visit you at a location of your convenience (additional costs apply)
- A test result report will be shared with you by email after 1-2 working days, which will clearly show your thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), T3 and T4 values
- If the test results show you have inadequate TSH, T3 or T4 values, we can run a more comprehensive thyroid profile (this can also be done right away)
