Who needs a TSH Test?
Individuals with one or more symptoms such as excessive weight gain or loss, fatigue, muscle weakness etc., are prescribed a TSH as a part of routine medical examination. The thyroid gland produces two major hormones: Triiodothyronine and Thyroxine. If our thyroid gland doesn’t produce these two hormones, we may experience the following:
1. Hypothyroidism: It’s a condition where the thyroid doesn’t create and release enough thyroid hormone into our bloodstream. One may experience symptoms such as weight gain, lack of energy and depression. This condition also slows down metabolism.
2. Hyperthyroidism: This condition is also called overactive thyroid, where the thyroid makes and releases higher levels of hormones. Some of the common symptoms include weight loss, rapid heartbeat, increased appetite and anxiety. This condition can make the metabolism speed up.
Any individual experiencing any of the above-mentioned symptoms may have an underlying disease or condition. The doctor may prescribe screening tests such as T4 or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) tests Apollo Diagnostics, Delhi offers quality TSH tests which are affordably priced.
