Haylie Pomroy has an offer on her site for a free quick start guide for new book The Fast Metabolism Diet – Food RX. The guide starts with a self assessment questionnaire for your health. The reason you should download this is the next section, Haylie explains all of the different markers you get back from your blood test during a physical. This is a great document to bring with you to your doctor when he is reviewing your results.
Here are just three of the five tests that can be done for thyroid conditions from her quick guide:
- TSH, or thyroid stimulating hormone
This shows how hard the pituitary is working to communicate with your thyroid. The test is a good one to run if you are experiencing fatigue, exhaustion, and brain fog.
Your thyroid gland produces T4, and abnormal levels can also be related to fatigue. If T4 is below normal, ask your doctor about hypothyroidism.
Your liver converts T4 into T3 to make it bioavailable, and this hormone has a major impact on your metabolism. Low levels of T3 are often associated with a disrupted circadian rhythm, weight gain, and depression.
You can download the quick guide here. This is a direct link to Haylie’s site, it is not an affiliate link. I am just sharing it with each of you because I think it is a fantastic document.
