Thyroid Panel + TSH
The Thyroid Bundle includes:
- T3 Uptake
- T4 (Thyroxine), Total
- Free T4 Index (T7) and
- TSH - Thyroid Stimulating Hormone
Thyroid disease is more common than diabetes or heart disease and many people are not even aware they have a known and real medical condition. The symptoms of either under- or over-active thyroids include fatigue, mood swings, forgetfulness, weight gain, depression, dry and thick skin and hair and at times can be mild and hard to diagnosis.
A problem in this hormone-producing gland can affect every system and cell in your body, leaving you vulnerable to heart disease, osteoporosis, and other illnesses. A TSH level can help determine whether the thyroid gland is functioning properly such as an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) or overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) gland.
