About Our Thyroid Panel with TSH
According to the American Thyroid association, 12% of Americans - particularly those with female bodies - will develop thyroid conditions in their lifetimes. The thyroid is a small gland in your throat that regulates your bodies hormones, which chemically affects many various parts of your body. A Thyroid panel is group of tests that helps you evaluate if your thyroid is under or overactive by measuring the amount of hormones in your body. The thyroid panel tests a few things specifically: Thyroxine tests for hypothyroidism; T3: triiodothyronine tests; and FT3: Free T3, or free triiodothyronine, which tests how effectively the thyroid bonds to your bloodstream.
The Thyroid Panel is tested with the Immunoassay (IA) method. T3 Uptake, T4 (Thyroxine) Total, Free, T4 Index (T7), TSH
The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism vary, depending on the severity of the hormone deficiency. Problems tend to develop slowly, often over a number of years.

When To Check
Thyroid panels should be a regular part of your annual wellness check. The symptoms for hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) are different. You may have an overactive thyroid if you feel anxiety, have extreme weight loss, puffiness, bulging eyeballs, a hard time sleeping, and tremors in the hands. Symptoms of an underactive thyroid include hair loss, weight gain, tiredness, constipation, and irregular menstrual cycles if you’re a woman.
