COMPREHENSIVE THYROID PANEL
Thyroid hormones are essential and primary regulators of the body's metabolism. Hormone imbalances can affect virtually every metabolic process in the body, exerting significant effects on mood and energy level.
The Comprehensive Thyroid Panel test provides a thorough analysis of thyroid hormone metabolism. It includes central thyroid gland regulation and activity, thyroid production and secretion, peripheral thyroid conversion, and thyroid autoimmunity. This test determines thyroid function, gives more information to the diagnosis of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, and analyzes serum levels of TSH, free T4, free T3, reverse T3, anti-TG antibodies, and anti-TPO antibodies to assess central and peripheral thyroid function, as well as thyroid auto-immunity.
Ensuring healthy thyroid function is clinically essential. Optimal thyroid function may help safeguard against the pathogenesis of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and depression. Thyroid hormones also play central metabolic roles in healthy sexual and reproductive function in both women and men. Because they are essential for IGF-1 production, thyroid hormones significantly affect lipid metabolism.
This comprehensive thyroid hormone panel measures:
- Free T3 (Free Triiodothyronine)
- Free T4 (Free Thyroxine)
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
- Anti-TG (Antibodies to Thyroglobulin)
- Anti-TPO (Antibodies to Thyroperoxidase)
This panel is good for those with hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Hashimotos thyroiditis, Graves disease, being treated or taking medication for thyroid, family history of thyroid conditions, or currently experiencing symptoms above as well as changes in weight.
