Thyroid Test Overview
Thyroid gland is an endocrine gland that produces thyroid hormones which carry out various energy related functions in the body. Normal production of these hormones is of utmost importance for the smooth functioning of the body. TSH or thyroid stimulating hormone signals the thyroid gland to produce the thyroid hormones. T3 and T4 are the thyroid hormones produced by these glands. Thyroid panel-1 is a comprehensive test that measures the functioning of the thyroid gland.

Frequently Asked Questions
The profile is mainly used to test the thyroid gland functioning. The most common scenarios where thyroid testing is carried out include:
- Cases of suspected hypothyroidism which may present as fatigue, increased sensitivity to cold, constipation, dry skin, weight gain, muscle weakness, puffy face.
- Cases of suspected hyperthyroidism which may present as unintentional weight loss, rapid heart rate, arrhythmia, palpitation, increase appetite, nervousness, irritability.
- For monitoring the status in thyroid patients to understand the treatment effectiveness.
Thyroid test measures Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) levels in the blood. TSH results are the starting point of the diagnostic algorithm, the results show diurnal variation (test should be done at the same time of the day during follow-ups). T4 is the second part of the algorithm and is evaluated if results of TSH are abnormal. T3 estimations are useful in some cases where T4 is normal.
Thyroid test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer.
Results of TSH in combination of T4 are often used to diagnose primary and secondary causes of hypo & hyperthyroidism.
TSH high: T4 low (primary hypothyroidism), T4 high (secondary hyperthyroidism)
TSH low: T4 low (secondary hypothyroidism), T4 high (primary hyperthyroidism)
