Schildklierfunctie test

Do you also sometimes feel tired, often feel cold, suffer from mood swings, weight gain or low energy? Unfortunately, we all suffer from these things at times, but they can also be symptoms of a slow-working thyroid.

When a thyroid gland is working too fast, you can experience symptoms such as: poor sleep, trembling hands, excessive sweating, weight loss, intestinal problems, shortness of breath and/or fatigue.

The thyroid produces the hormone Thyroxine (T4) and releases it into the blood. This hormone helps your body with metabolism and heat regulation, among other things. It therefore has an important role to play in your body.

In order to detect a thyroid that is working too slowly or too quickly in good time, it is advisable to check the thyroid function. If thyroid disorders are not treated (in time), they can lead to health problems such as cardiovascular disease, hyperactivity and depression.

This test will give you insight into your thyroid function.

The markers tested are:

  • TSH;
    • An important hormone-producing gland in the brain (pituitary gland) ensures that the right amount of thyroid hormone is produced.
  • fT4 (free T4)
    • The free, active form of the hormone Thyroxine (T4).
