What, exactly, are thyroid problems?

Thyroid function can be disturbed by issues like autoimmune disease, thyroid inflammation, growths called thyroid nodules, medications or, rarely, thyroid cancer, among other causes. These factors can cause either of two basic types of thyroid dysfunction; Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is when the thyroid gland is under-active, producing less thyroid hormones (called T3 and T4) than the body needs. In hyperthyroidism, the thyroid becomes over-active, producing excessive amounts of T3 and T4. Since thyroid hormones affect every major system in the body, both can lead to serious health consequences. Regular visits to a thyroid panel test lab near Cape Coral, FL to check up on thyroid health can ensure that thyroid problems are caught early to enable prompt treatment.

  • Graves' disease, a condition that causes an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) is found in approximately 1 percent of the population.
  • Hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid) is more common especially among women. About 10% of women over 65 have this disorder.

So what do you need to know about thyroid testing at a thyroid panel test lab near Cape Coral, FL?

Thyroid panel tests measure the amounts of specific thyroid hormones and other markers to evaluate how well your thyroid gland is working. Depending on the tests ordered, results may include levels of TSH, or thyroid stimulating hormone, and total and/or free T3 and T4, as well as indicators of autoimmune disease, among other factors related to thyroid function.
