US BioTek Comprehensive Thyroid Panel


Comprehensive Thyroid Panel

Thyroid dysfunction can have many manifestations, etiologies, and widespread implications for body metabolism and overall health. Thyroid gland inflammation (thyroiditis) can occur for many different reasons and is often the result of an autoimmune thyroid disorder. Early and accurate diagnosis of potential autoimmune thyroid dysfunction is essential when determining treatment plans. Effectively monitoring and managing autoimmune symptoms can avoid further health complications and help your patients achieve their health goals.

Our Comprehensive Thyroid Panel contains the thyroid antibody biomarkers needed for the diagnosis, monitoring, and management of a variety of autoimmune thyroid disorders such as Hashimoto’s disease, autoimmune thyroiditis, and Graves’ Disease.

The Comprehensive Thyroid Panel tests for:

Free T3
Free T4
Triiodothyronine (T3 Total)
Thyroxine (T4 Total)
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPO)
Thyroglobulin Antibodies

Turn Around Time: 14-16 days

A thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) blood test is used to check for thyroid problems, such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. TSH controls the production of the 2 thyroid hormones: triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), which both regulate just about every function in your body, from temperature to mood, to metabolism

It works like this:

Your hypothalamus produces a substance called TRH
TRH triggers your pituitary gland to release TSH
TSH tells the thyroid to make T3 and T4

A TSH test measures how much TSH is being released by your pituitary gland. Based on the lab results, you will be able to determine a possible underlying cause of a thyroid problem – such as whether your thyroid isn’t working (not producing T3/T4) or if it working too much (overproduction of T3/T4). Too much or too little TSH production are both primary symptoms of thyroid disease.
