Lesson 3: Should I Get Tested?

Should I get tested?

Test Don't Guess

If you’ve been experiencing several symptoms that thyroid disease causes, it’s worthwhile to get tested. However, the problem with hypothyroidism is that its symptoms are broad and overlap with many other conditions. You must get tested and have definitive results before you start any thyroid medication. Taking thyroid medication without having a thyroid problem could be as harmful as not taking it if you do.
