Thyroid Test

$92.00

Women are more likely to be affected by thyroid conditions, especially after pregnancy and menopause. Thyroid conditions may affect your menstrual cycle or fertility and have an impact on your quality of life.

 

The most common cause involves abnormal thyroid hormones production. Thyroid dysfunction may not cause noticeable symptoms in the early stages, but if left untreated it can cause a number of health problems over time.

Collection method:

On-site blood collection at your home, or at our partner clinic in Raffles Place.

SYMPTOMS

Hypothyroidism

 

Symptoms of hypothyroidism (underactive) develop slowly, often over several years.

 

At first, you may feel tired and sluggish. Later, you may develop other signs and symptoms of a slowed-down metabolism, including:

  • Feeling cold when other people do not

  • Constipation

  • Muscle weakness

  • Weight gain, even though you are not eating more food

  • Joint or muscle pain

  • Feeling sad or depressed

  • Feeling very tired

  • Pale, dry skin

  • Dry, thinning hair

  • Slow heart rate

  • Less sweating than usual

  • A puffy face

  • A hoarse voice

  • More than usual menstrual bleeding

You also may have high LDL or "bad" cholesterol, which can raise your risk for heart disease.

Hyperthyroidism

At first, you might not notice the signs or symptoms of hyperthyroidism (hyperactive). Symptoms usually begin slowly. But, over time, a faster metabolism can cause symptoms such as:

  • Weight loss, even if you eat the same or more food (most but not all people lose weight)

  • Eating more than usual

  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat or pounding of your heart

  • Feeling nervous or anxious

  • Feeling irritable

  • Trouble sleeping

  • Trembling in your hands and fingers

  • Increased sweating

  • Feeling hot when other people do not

  • Muscle weakness

  • Diarrhea or more bowel movements than normal

  • Fewer and lighter menstrual periods than normal

  • Changes in your eyes that can include bulging of the eyes, redness, or irritation

 

Hyperthyroidism raises your risk for osteoporosis, a condition that causes weak bones that break easily. In fact, hyperthyroidism might affect your bones before you have any of the other symptoms of the condition. This is especially true of women who have gone through menopause or who are already at high risk of osteoporosis.
