Here’s How You Can Find Out If You Have A Disorder Of The Thyroid Gland

– A simple home test for the Thyroid according to US endocrinologist Dr. Barnes


That process takes place by turning hormones TSH (from the pituitary) in hormones T4 and T3.

If there is a problem with the thyroid gland then it is unable to maintain adequate body temperature. Did you happen to have all the symptoms of hypothyroidism for the tests to show normal values?

According to some experts the very testing of hormones in the blood is not enough to reliably determine the disorder of the thyroid gland. This means that although the finding was neat, does not necessarily mean that your Thyroid gland is functioning flawlessly.

The reason for this is actually the test: it shows the level of hormones that are present in the blood, but does not show whether and how active the Thyroid gland is in their conversion.
Therefore, the basic method for measuring body temperature can lead to more reliable results in verifying the functionality of the Thyroid gland.

Dr. Broda Barnes developed the method, an American endocrinologist, author of several books on the Thyroid gland.


Above all, you need a thermometer, but it has to be a mercuric not a digital thermometer. At night before bedtime prepare the thermometer so that the shaking will bring mercury in scale to the lowest level. Leave the thermometer beside the bed to at reach, so you can reach for to it when you wake up.

As soon as you wake up, before getting up and before any other activity like, going to the bathroom should stay completely calm under the mulch and to measure body temperature under your arm. The measurement should be for at least 5 minutes. Look at the temperature of the mercury column and write it down.

Repeat this procedure at least three continuous days in a row. The same procedure applies to both men and women. During the cycle women should not do this test because it will not be confidential. It is important to measure the temperature in the morning before getting up, and the measurement can be in standby, so it won’t activate and accelerate the metabolism and thus to increase the temperature before measuring.

„Normal“ body temperature measured in all three days after waking up should be around 36,6 и 36,8 degrees Celsius.

According to the test that is developed by Dr. Barnes, the average temperature measured in three or more days that is below 36.6 and 36.4 presents a strong indicator of a problem with insufficient work of the Thyroid gland, i.e. with hypothyroidism.

With an average temperature above 36.8 you should be careful because the temperature can be caused by certain inflammatory processes in the body. If the temperature is above 36.8, and it’s repeated, and there are no other prominent causes in the body, this can be a strong indicator of increased functioning thyroid, i.e. hyperthyroidism.

However, the test cannot be the only indicator of thyroid problems. It is necessary to examine whether there are other symptoms in combination with this testing can quite reliably indicate a problem with the thyroid.

According to the claims of Dr. Barnes this way you can without invasive methods of blood findings, alone and simply control the condition and operation of the Thyroid gland. Moreover, the method is particularly useful for people who already have or have had problems diagnosed with thyroid or perhaps use therapy.  This way we should be able to determine the current situation of the Thyroid gland.

The test is performed at least three mornings in a row or longer and eventually takes an average temperature measurement (collect all results have and divide the sum by the number days).

It is important to mention that there are some additional factors that can influence a change in body temperature such as alcohol consumption the night before measurement, high stress experienced previously and use of hormonal contraception or recent termination of their use.

Some of the symptoms of disorder of the thyroid gland to be myopic with the test are:

HYPOTHYROIDISM (reduced thyroid function):

– Fatigue, depression, sensitivity to cold, getting weight, dry skin, decreased sense of taste and smell, slowed heartbeat, constipation, poor memory, concentration difficult, irregular menstruation, infertility, increased cholesterol, goiter.

HYPERTHYROIDISM (increased thyroid function):

– Anger and irritability, slimming, accelerated heart rate and skip, heat waves, changes in appetite, shortened menstruation, goiter.
