About Thyroid check

What is the thyroid check?

Triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) are the two main hormones produced by the thyroid gland. T3 is the more powerful of the two hormones, which regulate metabolism throughout the body. T4 acts both as a hormone by itself and as a precursor for T3 production. To stimulate the production of T3 and T4, the pituitary gland secretes thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).

Why take the test?

This test measures T4 and TSH which are associated with thyroid health. It is useful to diagnose thyroid problems or for those interested in knowing about the health and function of their thyroid gland.
