This test measures a key biomarker to evaluate thyroid condition

We measure TSH, or Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone, which is the hormone that measures thyroid activity. Depending on how much of this hormone is in your blood, you have an underactive or overactive thyroid. imaware™ tests have been validated for accuracy against existing testing methods.

Common symptoms associated with thyroid health

Some of the most common symptoms of thyroid disease are easily confused for normal signs of aging, making it difficult to detect without proper testing. If your LDL cholesterol is advancing or your weight is increasing unexpectedly, you should discuss getting a test. Other key symptoms include:

Thinning hair
Irregular, slow, or rapid heart-beating
Muscle weakness
Tremors
Joint pain

What are thyroid related health conditions?

Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland at the base of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. The thyroid gland has an enormous impact on your health, as every aspect of your metabolism is regulated by thyroid hormones. Hyperthyroidism is where the thyroid is overactive, and hypothyroidism is where the thyroid doesn't produce enough hormones.

Who is at risk of a thyroid condition?

12% of people will develop a thyroid-related condition during their lifetime and 60% of those who are affected are currently undiagnosed. You may have a thyroid-related condition if a family member, especially a first-degree member, has been diagnosed.

Having an autoimmune disease, such as type 1 diabetes or celiac disease, also increases your risk for thyroid problems.

What’s the benefit of early testing?

Thyroid conditions can be autoimmune (where the body mistakenly attacks itself) and hereditary in nature. Thyroid conditions may also be at the root of more chronic conditions such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease.

Since several of the most common symptoms related to thyroid disease are non-specific and easily mistaken for normal signs of aging, early testing is highly important to allow for quick detection and proper treatment.

Thyroid Screening Test FAQ's

How often should I check TSH levels?

If you are showing any symptoms of Hypo/hyperthyroidism, such as being incapable of regulating your temperature, skipping periods without pregnancy or significant weight gain while keeping your same eating habits, we recommend you test using the TSH blood test. If you are being treated by a doctor for Hypo/hyperthyroidism, this test is also ideal to monitor your TSH levels to gauge improvement. According to the American Thyroid Association, your TSH levels should be checked at 6-8 weeks after a thyroid hormone adjustment.

Why does this test only use the TSH biomarker?

At this time, our thyroid function tests only test for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). TSH is responsible for creating other thyroid hormones — T3 and T4. If the TSH baseline levels are abnormal, it will indicate a potential for hypo/hyperthyroidism. Using the results, an endocrinologist can provide further thyroid testing to delve deeper if necessary.

What will my results tell me?

Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) levels determine if you have an underactive or overactive thyroid — the organ that keeps your metabolism under control. These insights into your thyroid health can be used to engage a healthcare professional and follow-up with treatment for any issues found. This may include; reducing stress, iodine supplements, medication, exercise plans and dietary changes. Read more about thyroid stimulating exercise.
