This was the first time I had to take a drug test and it was very nerve racking to me. The nurse was so kind and explained everything so clearly.

I came in one day without an appoint and waited two hours as a walk-in before I had to leave without being tested. I made an appointment through Priority Lab Testing for the next day, showed up on time, got tested easily and was on my way in 15-20 minutes. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Thyroid Test FAQs

  • How much does a thyroid test cost in Nebraska?

    A thyroid test can cost anywhere from $0 to $200, depending on a variety of criteria such as health insurance coverage, copay amount, and provider-set testing prices. The cost of thyroid testing may also be affected by the number of tests you have and your location. To discover more about testing fees, contact the thyroid test provider directly.

  • Does insurance cover thyroid testing in Nebraska?

    Thyroid testing is covered by many health insurance policies, especially if your doctor orders it based on your symptoms and health condition. You may, however, be obliged to pay the copay. Confirm your coverage and whether thyroid testing is covered by your health plan by contacting your insurance provider directly.

  • Who should get a thyroid test in Nebraska?

    A thyroid test is recommended for anyone who is suffering symptoms of an underactive or hyperactive thyroid. Weight gain, constipation, and irregular menstrual periods are all signs of an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). Weight loss, a high heart rate, and anxiety are all signs of an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). If you have one or more of these symptoms, talk to your doctor about getting a thyroid test.

  • How do they test your thyroid?

    A simple blood test can be used to check your thyroid function. A healthcare expert will collect a small sample of blood from your arm and place it in one or more test tubes or vials during the test. Your blood is then tested at a lab to determine whether you have hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, or another thyroid-related health problem.

  • How should I prepare for a thyroid blood test in Nebraska?

    There is no need to prepare for a thyroid blood test. If your doctor is running other blood tests at the same time, you may need to fast for several hours before your appointment. In the days and hours immediately up to your appointment, ask your doctor or the thyroid test provider if there are any particular preparatory procedures you should take.

  • What is the thyroid blood test called?

    Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) testing is a type of blood test for the thyroid gland. A thyrotropin test, T4 test, T3 test, or thyroid antibody test is a type of thyroid blood test. Your doctor can use the T4 and T3 tests to identify hyperthyroidism. Thyroid antibody levels are measured in a thyroid antibody test to aid in the diagnosis of Graves' disease or Hashimoto's disease by your doctor. More information about your thyroid blood test can be obtained from your thyroid test provider.

  • How long does it take to get thyroid test results?

    Thyroid test results can take a few hours or days to get back, depending on how quickly the lab can process your sample. Some labs will call your doctor with the results, so you may have to wait until you hear from them. Other thyroid testing companies may contact you directly with results as soon as they become available. To find out when you can expect your findings, contact the test provider directly.

  • Where should I get a thyroid test in Nebraska?

    Many healthcare providers, including primary care doctors, urgent care centers, and walk-in clinics, offer thyroid exams. Inquire with your primary care physician about thyroid testing in their office or if they can send you to a practitioner who does. You may also use Solv to find top-rated thyroid test providers in your area who can see you the same day or the next day.

  • What can affect thyroid test results?

    Thyroid test results can be influenced by a number of circumstances, including pregnancy, drugs, and certain medical disorders. Thyroid test results can be influenced by high-dose biotin, corticosteroids, and diabetes drugs, as well as typical hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. When doing a thyroid test, many doctors take these factors into account, and they may ask questions about your current health and medical history to uncover potential abnormalities and irregularities that could cause test results to be incorrect.

  • Can I do at-home thyroid testing?

    Thyroid tests for at-home use can be acquired online or at a variety of drugstores and pharmacies. Pricking your finger to acquire a blood sample, which you can then send to a lab for examination and diagnosis, is standard for these procedures. Depending on the sort of test you get, at-home thyroid testing might cost anywhere from $30 to $200. They'll tell you how to complete the test and where to send your blood sample.

Nebraska Thyroid Tests

A thyroid test is a blood test that determines the amounts of thyroid hormones in your body.

Thyroid hormones play a vital part in how your body uses energy, as well as regulating your weight, body temperature, and mood. Thyroid hormone levels that are too high or too low can cause a variety of health issues, including weight gain or loss, anxiety, insomnia, hair loss, and constipation, to name a few.

If you have one or more symptoms of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, you may need a thyroid test. Anxiety, increased heart rate, weight loss, and difficulty sleeping are all symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Fatigue, constipation, hair loss, and weight gain are all symptoms of hypothyroidism.

A blood test is used to do a thyroid test. During the test, a healthcare provider takes a blood sample from your finger or arm with a little needle. Your blood will then be collected and placed in little tubes or vials, which will be transported to a lab for further analysis. Typically, the complete testing process takes no more than 15 minutes.

There is no need to prepare for a thyroid test, and there are no major dangers involved. Some people, however, may have minor soreness or bruising on the finger or arm where blood was drawn, which normally subsides within minutes.

The TSH thyroid test is typically the first step in determining your thyroid levels. Your doctor may order or perform additional thyroid tests, such as the T4 test, T3 test, or thyroid antibodies test, based on the results of the TSH test to diagnose or rule out specific thyroid problems. To diagnose or rule out thyroid problems, imaging tests such as CT scans, ultrasounds, and nuclear medicine may be required.

Your doctor will tell you whether you have a thyroid problem.
