Thyroid disease is a condition in which your body produces too much or too little of the thyroid hormone that you need to support your bodily functions. Though anyone can develop thyroid disease, you’re five times more likely to develop the disease if you’re a woman. Everyone, especially women, can suffer complications from thyroid disease if it is left untreated. Diagnosing and monitoring thyroid disease with lab testing can help you to develop an initial treatment plan with your doctor or better evaluate the success of your current treatment.
Depending on whether your thyroid is under- or overactive, you may experience different symptoms of thyroid disease. If your thyroid is underactive, you may experience weight gain, fatigue, dry skin or hair, and other symptoms. If your thyroid is overactive, you may experience symptoms such as weight loss, rapid heart rate, anxiety, and other symptoms. Still, in certain cases, you may not experience any symptoms of thyroid disease.
As part of our My Lab ReQuest service, Sonora Quest Laboratories allows you to order your own lab tests to check the health of your thyroid.
