A convenient thyroid panel that provides a snapshot of thyroid health at a reasonable cost, this series of tests measure key thyroid hormones that can detect diseases of the thyroid and imbalances in thyroid hormone levels. Certain result values may prompt a phone call from our ordering provider to ensure customer is aware of their result. Thyroid disorders present with different symptoms, depending on the type of disease. Typically, there are changes in anxiety, sleeping patterns, weight, menstruation, temperature sensitivity, heart rate, and sweating which may all be related to conditions of the thyroid.
Fertility problems can also be affected by thyroid functioning. By measuring the levels of key thyroid hormones, this panel can help you and your physician understand if these symptoms are related to the functioning of your thyroid, and can be helpful for the physician in prescribing proper treatment. As part of this panel, the following tests are performed:
This test will measure the amount of proteins in the blood that are capable of carrying a thyroid hormone. It is used in combination with other thyroid tests to give an in-depth overview of thyroid functioning. The results of this test can be affected by several drugs and conditions, including anabolic steroids, aspirin, anticoagulants, birth control, estrogen, kidney disease, other serious disease, pregnancy, and some other medications. Discussing the results of this test along with any medications you are currently taking with a medical professional will lead to the best possible results. This test is useful for detecting hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
The T4 test measures the level of a key thyroid hormone, T4, in the blood. High levels of T4 may be a result of an overactive thyroid, while low levels of T4 can be caused by an underactive thyroid. The results of this test, in combination with the results of the other tests in this panel, can determine the presence of thyroid disease, and the degree of severity of thyroid disease.
The T7 test is an estimation of T4 levels, based on the results of the T3 re-uptake and T4 test. This test is used in combination with the other thyroid tests in the panel to provide a comprehensive overview of thyroid functioning.
