Basic Home Tests to Check Thyroid
1) Feel the thyroid gland:
Thyroid gland sits just below the adam’s apple and has its wings on both sides of trachea. Run your fingers along the sides of your throat and check if there is swelling or bumps. If swelling is there you need to explore the problem further and have some lab tests done.
2) Check your basal temperature:
If you run too hot or too cold, this could be an indication of an upcoming thyroid problem. This home test is quite easy and gives accurate results. All you need to do is buy a basal thermometer from a chemist shop. It is different from the oral one. Place it under your arm every morning and check the temperature. The temperature should not exceed the normal body temperature i.e. between 97.8 and 98.2
If you feel you have quite a number of them, then all you need to do is call us.
