Home test kit for underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). Pack containing a kit to test for high levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in the blood. TSH is a peptide hormone that is synthesized in the anterior pituitary gland of the brain. It stimulates the thyroid gland to secrete the hormones thyroxine and tri-iodothyronine. Thyroid hormones regulate the body's metabolism. Levels of TSH above normal indicate hypothyroidism, symptoms of which may include tiredness, feeling cold, weight gain, depression, and poor memory and concentration.
