To honor Thyroid Awareness Month, digital health pioneer, MyMedLab will help undiagnosed patients take that first important step toward a thyroid diagnosis. For only twenty five dollars, consumers can purchase a baseline blood test panel that includes the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) along with the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) screening test for thyroid disorders.
The MyMedLab thyroid basic panel was designed by thyroid expert, patient advocate, and author Mary Shomon, who is also helping make the thyroid community and her readers aware of the Thyroid Awareness Month test panel. Other thyroid advocacy groups have also signed on as co-sponsors for the effort to make Thyroid Awareness Month test panels available around the nation. The Coalition for Better Thyroid Care’s Executive Director Geri Rybacki, and DearThyroid Founder Katie Schwartz have said that they will be focusing their patient advocacy efforts this month on helping promote the special $25 test panels at their sites, http://www.betterthyroidcare.org.
“It is estimated that as many as 40 million Americans may be suffering from undiagnosed or misdiagnosed thyroid conditions,” said Shomon. “I am excited to be able to help make these important tests available and affordable to as many people as possible in the patient community.”
The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland, located in the neck. The hormones released by the thyroid control energy and metabolism, and are essential for many important physical functions.
When undiagnosed and untreated, thyroid problems can cause a variety of debilitating symptoms, including weight gain or inability to lose weight, depression, brain fog, anxiety, fatigue, low sex drive, hair loss, high cholesterol, infertility, and other troublesome issues. Because symptoms can sometimes be broad, thyroid disease is often misdiagnosed as a mental health issue, and symptoms attributed to lack of sleep or exercise, overeating, or other lifestyle issues.
“Patients are frequently charged as much as $100 or more for just a TSH test,” said David Clymer, CEO of MyMedLab. “We wanted to mark Thyroid Awareness Month 2012 by making the first-level thyroid screening affordable to everyone.”
The MyMedLab tests provide a simple and affordable way to receive an unbiased evaluation of an important marker of thyroid health. Along with the TSH test, the CMP panel offers a grouping of essential tests that provide information about the status of kidneys, liver, electrolytes, blood sugar, protein levels, and more. Available in over 2,000 locations nationwide, the initial test results will establish a baseline of values, including a secure online electronic health record, that can be used for easy comparison to future results.
The Thyroid Stimulating Hormone test is typically the first step to getting a thyroid condition diagnosed. Log on to MyMedLab.com to order your thyroid lab tests for only $25.00 through January 31, 2012.
