Thyroid Issues?

How to Clarifying Root Causes

We often know we have a thyroid issue a long time before the blood tests confirm that our vague, but persistent symotms have a biological cause.

If we are lucky our Thyroid Function is corrected easily with the thyroid supplementation that the NHS provides - and we can go about our business fully recovered and just needing to pop a tiny pill to correct our Thyroid Hormone levels.
Unfortunately, for the greater majority of people with Thyroid Dysfunction, this is not the case!

Thyroid Dysfunctions can have multiple Root Causes - and whilst some people have a primary thyroid issue, other thyroid issues are secondary to other systematic issues.
This is why a Full and Complete check of possible root causes is a good place to start if you are truly interested and wish to be empowered as an active participant in your own health story!

Unfortunately, due to the many NHS budget cuts, and also a long-held, systemic medical view that thyroid issues are not that important (unless you are acutely Hyperthyroid), the levels of thyroid hormone testing that is truly required to fully understand the whole picture is not completed within our current NHS processes.

Luckily - MEDICHECKS provides a full range of thyroid testing - that you can rely on to provide a more comprehensive analysis of what is going on throughout your body.

These checks can be arranged in Private clinics - simply and easily. 
Equally, Medichecks can send a nurse directly to you for a minimal call out fee.
