Whilst lockdown has indeed been hard, it has given people time to look inwards at their overall health.
Being aware of our health and ways we can stop the spread of the coronavirus however has lead to positive changes globally: an example of this is that the cold and flu season in Australia has not yet made an appearance, most likely due to higher rates of hand washing and sanitisation.
At My Specialist GP and other GP practices across the UK, we are finding more and more people are looking for ways to rectify any symptoms that may have been brushed away for a long time.
A common symptom that is usually put down to long hours in the office, stretched between family and friend and other timely commitments is tiredness. However, now that the UK has had a chance to remove some of these excuses - still quite tired.
Hormones play a vital role in our body, affecting energy levels as well as mood, libido, weight and even immunity to coughs and colds. Thyroid issues can affect as many as 1 in 20 people, be that temporary or permanent, and makes up two different hormones in the system: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).
We would like to make all of our patients feel safe and secure in the knowledge of their health, so we offer thyroid tests following a consultation that looks at you as a person, not just one symptom.
Our thyroid test is able to illuminate what is happening in your body, and what we can do to help you be healthier and happier.
