July 1, 2018

 

Thyroid Profile, or Thyroid Function tests, are a group of tests that are requested together, this is to help evaluate your thyroid gland function, and to help diagnose thyroid gland disorder, or to monitor your response to treatment you are having that's related to your disorders.

 

The thyroid function/profile blood test measures the amount of thyroid hormones we have, such as:-

TSH

FT3

FT4

 

These hormones are chemical substances, that travel through our bloodstream, and then controls or regulates our bodies metabolism system (uses of energy)

 

Thyroid hormones are present in our blood, either protein bound form, which is the majority, or the Free and active form of our hormone.

 

TSH - Thyroid stimulating Hormone - is produced by our pituitary gland, and is a part of our body's feedback system, to maintain stable amounts of thyroid hormones in our blood.
