Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)

$34.00

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.

Description

TSH levels increase when T4 levels drop. Conversely, TSH levels decrease when T4 rises. This test is usually the only test evaluated when thyroid function is being reviewed. This test is not sufficient when evaluating thyroid function. Many factors may disrupt the balance of thyroid hormone production, including medications, allergies (wheat & gluten), anemia, poor gastrointestinal function, insulin resistance, bone metabolism, hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies such as selenium, decreased levels of Vitamin A & D and metabolic disruptors such as PCBs to name a few.


Test Preparation For Optimal Results:

If possible, have the lab collected early in the morning or shortly after waking. For comparison purposes, have subsequent labs collected close to the same time.

Disclaimer: Your health care provider should evaluate a deviation from normal ranges.
