$0.00$325.00

A Thyroid Panel with TSH is a group of tests used to evaluate the levels of hormones created by the thyroid gland in the body. These hormones affect the body’s energy levels, temperature, protein production, and the usage of other hormones. The panel includes tests for triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), and thyroid antibodies. The T3 and T4 test measure the amount of active hormones in the body while the TSH test measures the stimulating hormone the thyroid is being exposed to. The test also looks for antibodies that could be targeting the thyroid gland. This test is important in determining whether the thyroid gland is functioning properly and can help diagnose and treat thyroid conditions like hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.

Description

A thyroid panel with TSH is a group of tests used to measure the levels of hormones produced by the thyroid gland in the body. The thyroid is a small gland located near the throat and is known for regulating the rate at which the body uses energy. It also helps to regulate the body’s temperature, production of proteins, and use of other hormones. These hormones can be affected by environmental factors and by other medical conditions and as a result, it is important to check the levels of these hormones in the body regularly.The thyroid panel with TSH includes tests for: triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroid antibodies. The T3 and T4 test measures the amount of hormones active in the body while the TSH measures the amount of stimulating hormone the thyroid is being exposed to. The thyroid antibodies test looks for the presence of any antibodies that could be targeting the thyroid gland. A thyroid panel with TSH is important because it allows the doctors to assess the amount of hormones in the body, and assess the effectiveness of the thyroid gland in producing these hormones. If any abnormalities appear in the test results, it may indicate a thyroid disorder, or thyroid gland malfunction. This test is used to monitor the health of the thyroid gland and is important in diagnosing and treating thyroid conditions such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.
