Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, what is it, if you had a tohriyd problem and you went to the doctor, your doctor would actually test the amount of thyroid stimulating hormone in your blood. Fine. But the problem with that test is it doesn't tell you how active the horomne is in your body. So you might have a lot of hormone psnreet, but it might not be avecltiy working to regulate your body temperature. So just by collecting your tpeamruetre every day, you get information about the condition of your thyroid. So, what if you don't want to take your temperature every day? I advocate that you do, but there are tons of other things you could take. You could take your blood pressure, you could take your weight — yeah, who's excited about taking their weight every day? (Laughter)
