Quick Test for Hypothyroidism

What is Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is a common disorder in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone.

TSH Blood Test for Thyroid Function

A thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) blood test is used to check for thyroid glad problems. TSH is produced when the hypothalamus releases a substance called thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH). TRH then triggers the pituitary gland to release TSH. TSH causes the thyroid gland to make two hormones: triiodothyronine(T3) and thyroxine (T4). T3 and T4 help control the body's metabolism. Thyroid gland functions should be monitored in people who are being treated for hyperthyroidism. This treatment may include antithyroid medicine, surgery, or radiation therapy. Double-check the diagnosis of an underactive thyroid gland in newborns (congenital hypothyroidism). Applicable to pregnant women, newborn infants, seniors and hypothyroidism patients.
