The accurate diagnosis of your thyroid function is imperative if you want to lead a thoroughly healthy life. Having a fulfilling life starts with your health, everything else follows. So how do you find out what’s really going on?
Hyperthyroidism, or over-active thyroid, refers to conditions caused by excessive thyroid hormones Free T3 and Free T4. Hyperthyroidism is where your hormonal system is not functioning because too much of your metabolic hormone is being produced and released into your system.
Hypothyroidism is an under-active or low performing thyroid, meaning it isn’t naturally producing enough thyroid hormone for your body to metabolise properly. The most common causes of hypothyroidism include the autoimmune condition Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and iodine deficiency.
