WHAT HAPPENS ONCE YOU ORDER YOUR TEST?
Upon ordering the Thyroid Function TEST, you will get an individualised document to get you a blood sampling in the closest place to your home. This is usually done in Barbate, Chiclana, or Cádiz. Your lab results are usually ready 48 hours after blood sampling.
When the lab results are ready, we will meet together in my therapy room for a 30-minute appointment to revise your lab values. Furthermore, I will advise you which lifestyle changes you might need to improve your lab values and thus your health in the future.
During our appointment, you will get a copy of your lab analyses.
After our appointment, I will send you a copy of your lab analyses and – if necessary – further information on how to improve your health in the future.
What is this test about?
The Thyroid Function TEST checks for the Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH). TSH is hormone, that is produced in our brains by the pituitary gland. In the thyroid it stimulates the production of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4), and triiodothyronine (T3). Triiodothyronine (T3) is a master regulator of the metabolism of almost every tissue in the body.
This how the thyroid regulates glucose, fat, and cholesterol metabolism. Furthermore, the thyroid controls calcium metabolism – which is essential for the composition of the bones. The thyroid regulates rate and strength of the heartbeat, blood flow, and your body’s temperature.
Also, the thyroid hormones also have an influence on your breathing, rate, thereby controlling your consumption of oxygen. They also increase the activity of mitochondria in your cells. Combined, these factors increase blood flow and the body’s temperature.
As you can see the thyroid is of tremendous importance for various processes in your body and can strongly influence your mood and well-being.
