This blood test measures Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin levels. Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin is also known as SHGB and Testosterone-binding Globulin (TeBG). Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) is under the positive control of estrogen and thyroid hormone and is suppressed by androgens. It also serves as a transport protein for thyroid and testosterone.
This blood test measures T-3 Uptake levels. The results of a T-3 uptake are used as an indirect measure of bioavailable binding sites for the thyroid stimulatory hormones from the brain. T-3 uptake is not a measurement of T3 and should never be used alone.
This blood test measures Total and Free Testosterone. Testosterone is an anabolic steroid hormone, which is synthesized from cholesterol and secreted in the testes and ovaries. Small amounts of testosterone are also secreted by the adrenal glands.

This blood test is used to measure thyroglobulin levels. Thyroglobulin is a protein that helps synthesize the production of thyroid hormones. Thyroglobulin may be used to help establish the cause of hyperthyroidism or to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for certain thyroid disorders. This test is primarily used as a tumor marker to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment for thyroid cancer and to monitor for recurrence.
This blood test is a combination test used to evaluate both, Thyroid Autoantibodies (TAA) and Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPO ab). Thyroid autoantibody (TAA) is a test that helps to determine if an autoimmune process is manifesting in the thyroid system. Autoantibodies to thyroglobulin (thyroid hormone) may lead to the destruction of the thyroid gland.
The Thyroid Basic Panel includes a TSH, T4, FT3 and a FT4. This group of individual tests was strategically constructed in order to review a broader perspective of thyroid function. The conventional review of thyroid function is usually based on a thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level alone.
This test kit measures: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Free T3, Free T4, Thyroglobulin Antibody (Anti-TG), Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (Anti-TPO).
The evaluation of thyroid hormones and thyroid antibodies is an opportunity to discover and treat the functional cause of vague symptoms and chronic complaints. The analysis of thyroid hormones and antibodies together may improve the accuracy of diagnosis and clinical success.The analysis of thyroid hormones and antibodies together may improve the accuracy diagnosis and clinical success. The American Thyroid Association estimates that approximately 20 million Americans have thyroid disease, and approximately 60% of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition. The recognition of auto-immunity as a leading cause of thyroid dysfunction has led to the evaluation of auto-antibodies in thyroid testing.
This blood test measures Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) or thyrotropin levels. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is the most common and sensitive marker of thyroid function. It is a hormone that is secreted by the pituitary gland to stimulate thyroid activity.
