Thyroid hormones can also increase energy, help food move through the gastrointestinal tract and increase perspiration. Because its effects are so far-reaching, a lack of thyroid hormone can result in a number of health conditions including:
- cold body temperature
- arthritis and muscle cramps
- weight gain
- poor reflexes
Why Test Urine Thyroid?
Standard tests for thyroid function may underestimate the incidence of thyroid disease. A 24 hour urine collection can be used to help determine if symptoms are thyroid related.
