Thyroid Panel with TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
The Thyroid Panel with TSH is a group of blood tests that helps evaluate thyroid gland function and can help diagnose thyroid disorders. This group of tests measures the amount of thyroid hormones in the blood. Thyroid hormones are chemical substances that are important to regulating metabolism, or how the body uses energy.
The Thyroid Panel with TSH includes:
- T4 (Thyroxine)—The total amount of T4, a hormone produced by the thyroid, in the blood.
- T3 uptake—Triiodothyronine, or T3, is another hormone produced by the thyroid. Thyroid hormones exist in two forms: either protein-bound (mostly a protein called thyroxine-binding globulin, or TBG) or free (meaning they aren’t attached to a protein and can affect body tissues). T3 uptake helps estimate the amount of TBG in the blood and is used along with Total T4 results to calculate T7.
- T7 (Free Thyroxine Index)—Used to estimate free T4.
- TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)—A hormone produced by the pituitary gland to regulate the release of thyroid hormones when T3 and T4 levels are too high or low.
