ADVANCED THYROID PANEL
A thyroid hormone panel screens for thyroid function and can help diagnose potential thyroid disease by examining your body’s production, levels, or usage of the different thyroid hormones. There are two types of thyroid and thyroid hormone-related disorders.
1. Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) – symptoms may include fatigue, weight gain, a short attention span, and numbness or cold intolerance.
2. Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) – symptoms may include weight loss, persistent vomiting, increased blood pressure, hair loss, or a persistently fast heart rate.
The Advanced Thyroid Panel is a more detailed view of all of the thyroid hormones, measuring the levels of T3 and T4 that are readily available for use in the body. This panel includes the following tests:
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
- Free T4
- Free T3
