Welcome to Your Thyroid Check. The Pod Health thyroid function test provides a simple blood test to assess the current functioning of your thyroid gland and whether it might be under or over active.
The thyroid gland is an important part of the endocrine system and secretes hormones that play a key role in metabolism – the way your body uses energy.
Some potential symptoms of an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism) include: fatigue, weakness, weight gain (or difficulty losing weight), constipation, coarse hair, dry hair, hair loss, dry skin, muscle cramps and cold intolerance
Some potential symptoms of an over active thyroid (hyperthyroidism) include: fatigue, tremors, palpitations, weight loss, diarrhoea, mood swings, nervousness/anxiety and sleep difficulty.
One of our doctors will provide feedback on your results within 7 days.
As part of the Thyroid Check you will automatically be enrolled onto our Digital Health Check service we regularly review your health data to identify which disease processes you may be of risk of developing in the future. The accuracy of this can be improved in combination with our Health Check.
