Knowledge is Power

The biomarkers measured in this test collectively examine the functioning of your thyroid gland that produces the thyroid hormones. You might be unaware that the thyroid gland is located in the front part of your neck and is responsible for producing thyroid hormones to regulate the body's metabolism, including temperature, weight, and energy.

Suppose your thyroid glands are not functioning properly. In that case, it could lead to making too much thyroid hormone, a condition called hyperthyroidism, or it could lead to making too little of the thyroid hormone, a condition called hypothyroidism. When your thyroid makes too much of the thyroid hormone, the body’s metabolic rate increases. Therefore, using energy quickly can lead to weight loss, feeling nervous, and increased heart rate, among other symptoms. On the converse, when your thyroid makes too little of the thyroid hormone, the body’s metabolic rate is lowered. Hence, energy consumption is lower, leading to tiredness, weight gain, increased sensitivity to cold temperature and feeling tired, among other symptoms.
