Using a Home Thyroid Test Kit

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) And An Under Active Thyroid

You can tell within minutes if you have an under active thyroid with this easy to use thyroid test kit.

Thyroid disorders are some of the most widespread medical ailments worldwide, especially for females, with a growing number being affected by a thyroid gland that is under active (hypothyroidism).

Under active thyroid symptoms include feeling tired, gaining weight, skin that is dry, brittle hair, experiencing depression and being forgetful. Constipation and irregular periods for women are additional symptoms for under active thyroid sufferers.

The pituitary gland secretes thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) which regulates the operation of the thyroid. If there’s an increase level of TSH, this might indicate an under active thyroid gland and your doctor might order blood tests to check your TSH levels.

Results of the TSH Test

The TSH test reveals if your TSH amounts are regular or overly high.

  • A TSH level under 5mIU/L signifies standard TSH amounts and your signs and symptoms are not likely to be caused by an underactive thyroid
  • A TSH level over 5mIU/L suggests that your TSH level is elevated and you might have an under active thyroid. Consult with your physician for additional testing
