Description

The Thyroid Cascade Profile is a panel of tests used to assess the health of individual’s thyroid gland. It measures the levels of hormones produced by the thyroid and includes tests for both Free T4 and TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone). The profile also evaluates the presence of thyroid antibodies, which are used to evaluate for diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Graves’s Disease. The Thyroid Cascade Profile is important because it can help identify a wide range of thyroid disorders, such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Graves’s Disease. It is also used to identify individuals with optimal thyroid functioning and hormone balance in order to maintain a healthy weight, energy level, and overall health. By having this profile done on a regular basis, individuals can gauge the effectiveness of any treatment they may be undergoing for a thyroid condition, and take appropriate action if it is necessary.
