With this complete test, you can easily assess your levels of the three main thyroid hormones (TSH, T3, and T4), as well as thyroid antibodies, all from the comfort of your own home.
Thyroid function tests (TFTs) are a group of tests requested to help check how the thyroid gland is working, to diagnose thyroid gland disorders and to monitor the response of thyroid disorders to treatment.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Thyroxine (T4, free direct)
Triiodothyronine (T3, free)
This test detects three major thyroid hormones as well as thyroid peroxidase antibodies.
The levels of three major thyroid hormones, as well as thyroid peroxidase antibodies, will be measured in your blood. These circulating thyroid hormones have an effect on a variety of bodily activities. You can determine if you have thyroid dysfunction by evaluating your levels of each.
Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is the hormone that regulates thyroid hormone synthesis by the thyroid gland. TSH, the thyroid hormone, is thought to be the most sensitive marker for screening for thyroid disorders and illnesses. Our thyroid panel is excellent for at-home TSH testing and will tell you how your levels relate to the normal range.
Antibodies to Thyroid Peroxidase
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies are antibodies that bind to thyroid enzymes and inhibit thyroid function. They are high in Hashimoto's disease, which is the most prevalent form of hypothyroidism.
T3 for free
The thyroid gland produces free T3, which is a hormone. When people have an underactive or hyperactive thyroid gland, their levels of this vary.
T4 for free
The primary hormone generated by the thyroid gland is free T4. When people have an underactive or hyperactive thyroid gland, their levels vary. This thyroid function test checks your free T4 to discover if your thyroid hormone production is normal.
Do you have symptoms such as weight loss, thinning hair, or fatigue?
Changes in thyroid hormone levels can result in hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) (overactive thyroid). Both illnesses can cause a number of unpleasant sensations in your body.
