Our thyroid panel evaluates the functioning of your thyroid that regulates metabolism and energy levels.
Our thyroid panel evaluates the functioning of your thyroid by looking at the hormones. The thyroid is a small gland responsible for producing thyroid hormones, which exert significant influence on almost every cell in the body. Crucially, it governs metabolism, affecting calorie burning rates, and even plays a role in modulating heart rate.
TSH(thyrotropin) is a hormone produced by cells of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. It affects the metabolism of thyroid cells and stimulates the production and secretion of thyroid hormones such as the hormone fT4. The combination of TSH and fT4 tests reveals both types of thyroid disorders (increased function – hyperthyroidism, decreased function – hypothyroidism).
FT3 stands for Free Triiodothyronine. It is a hormone produced by the thyroid gland and is one of the thyroid hormones responsible for regulating your body's metabolism, energy levels, and other important functions.
It can help evaluate how well your thyroid gland is functioning.
Free T4 is the active form of a hormone called thyroxine that is produced by the thyroid gland. It helps regulate the body's metabolism and energy levels. Testing it can help assess thyroid function and identify potential imbalances.Show lessShow more
