Why get a thyroid panel?
The thyroid gland is a powerhouse for all cell functions. The panel can detect hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism — under-functioning or over-functioning of the thyroid gland. The thyroid produces, stores and releases thyroid hormones known as triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) into the bloodstream, which influence bodily functions such as:
- Metabolic rate
- Body temperature
- Digestive function
- Brain development
- Bone maintenance
- Hair growth
- Cholesterol levels
- Mood and energy levels

+ What is the thyroid panel?
The test, called a thyroid function test, looks at levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroxine (T4) in the blood. Your test results will measure your levels of three main thyroid hormones – Free T4, Free T3, and TSH – plus thyroid peroxidase antibodies. These circulating thyroid hormones have an impact on many functions of the body. By measuring your levels of each, you can understand if you may be experiencing thyroid dysfunction in the form of hyper-thyrodism or hypothyroidism.
+ What is hyperthyroidism?
Hyperthyroidism is the production of too much thyroxine hormone. Symptoms include unexpected weight loss, rapid or irregular heartbeat, sweating, and irritability.
+ What is hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism is the condition in which the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone. Hypothyroidism’s deficiency of thyroid hormones can disrupt such things as heart rate, body temperature, and all aspects of metabolism, and is most prevalent in older women. Key symptoms include fatigue, cold sensitivity, constipation, dry skin, and unexplained weight gain.
