About

Basic Thyroid Care (thyroid screening package) is a key indicator that determines how well your thyroid gland is working. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that produces two necessary hormones, T3 (Triiodothyronine) & T4 (Thyroxine). These hormones regulate many bodily functions such as heart rate, body weight and body temperature. Hormones secreted from the thyroid gland help control your body’s metabolism. 

The reason why a thyroid screening package is required is to find out if the thyroid gland is overproducing or underproducing the hormone, which may cause symptoms like fatigue, sudden weight gain or loss, irritability, anxiety and muscle and joint pains. Apollo 24|7 has got together a thyroid function screening package that will help in the early diagnosis of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. 

This specific thyroid screening package from Apollo 24|7 not only determine the levels of T3, T4 and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) but also comes with the calcium test. The calcium test will help understand a lot about your bone health.
