Post pregnancy having symptoms of thyroid problem. Test for thyroid imbalance? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Doctor i had a query
can you please suggest me what are the symtoms... and where can i go to for a check up
Why do you feel you have thyroid?
i read in a news paper and the symtoms seems to be matching like arms paining, hair loss, joint pains
you may know that thyroid gland stimulates hormones. One experiences symptoms and troubles both if the hormone is high and if it is low.
I would be able to relate better if you can explain your symptoms to me.
arms paining, hair loss, sometimes i feel tired at the throat
Since when are you suffering from them?
Let me brief you.
Thyroid produce vague symptoms. Weight changes, hair loss, tiredness, weakness, menstrual disturbances, skin changes and many other myriad of symptoms can occur.
Due to such non specific symptoms, we usually use blood testing to confirm thyroid disturbances.
Though the symptoms you reported do not clearly indicate presence of thyroid problems, I would suggest you to get a blood test known as thyroid profile test.
We will very well be able to judge your thyroid status based on these values.
how much will it cost me?
Normal TSH levels with normal T3 and T4 will mean that your thyroid hormones are functioning well and you are ok.
The test would cost around Rs.500 INR at most institutes.
Do you have any doubts?
no Doctor, i just want to be completely fit and fine
You may get this test done and if they are normal, you don't need to be worried about thyroid problems any more.
Is there any other query?
i hv a one and half year old daughter, just want to make sure that i live for her in the best healthy way
No, thank you! will go and get the tests done as suggested.
Good health is defined as physical, mental and spiritual well being.
You should be able remain healthy and watch your daughter grow.
We at XXXXXXX can be able to assist you if you have any physical problems.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
