What are some of the reasons to consider a thyroid evaluation?
If you have a first degree relative (a parent, sibling or child), you would benefit from a thyroid evaluation.
If your thyroid is not functioning properly, it can produce too much thyroid hormone which causes the body's systems to speed up (hyperthyroidism) or it can be the complete opposite and produce too little thyroid hormone which causes the body's systems to slow down (hypothyroidism).
