Who should take the test?

Our TSH Test is recommended for those who are concerned about their overall well-being and who want to proactively monitor their thyroid health.

The thyroid gland, located in the neck, plays a significant role in our well-being, and thyroid dysfunction can lead to various problems like arrhythmia, infertility, depressive moods, or weight changes. Since thyroid issues are often undetected, regular testing of your TSH levels can aid in the early detection of thyroid dysfunction, making our test beneficial for a wide range of individuals.

Test measures
For the TSH Test we analyze:
  • TSH
TSH

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), produced by the brain’s pituitary gland, regulates thyroid hormone production. Normal TSH levels indicate a healthy thyroid. TSH levels adjust in response to changes in fT4 and fT3 levels to maintain thyroid hormone stability, making TSH a crucial thyroid health indicator.

TSH aids in distinguishing primary hyperthyroidism (low TSH, high fT4 and/or fT3) from secondary hypothyroidism (low TSH, low fT4 and fT3). Conversely, primary hypothyroidism (high TSH, low fT4 and/or fT3) differs from secondary hyperthyroidism (high TSH, high fT4 and/or fT3).

If your TSH levels are normal but thyroid symptoms persist, a comprehensive thyroid evaluation, including fT4 and fT3, may be necessary.

In any case, we highly recommend consulting your healthcare provider to discuss your results.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

What exactly is a TSH test, and why is it important?

The TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone) test is a blood test that measures TSH levels in the body. It is crucial for assessing thyroid function because TSH regulates the production of thyroid hormones. Abnormal TSH levels can signal thyroid disorders, making this test important for early detection and monitoring of thyroid health.

When is the best time to collect my sample for the TSH test?

For the most accurate results, it's generally best to collect your sample in the morning, within the first few hours after waking up. This timing provides stable and comparable TSH levels. However, always follow the specific instructions provided with your test kit, as some tests may have different timing requirements.

What are the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction?

Thyroid dysfunction can lead to various symptoms, depending on whether the thyroid is overactive (hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism). Common symptoms of hyperthyroidism include weight loss, rapid heartbeat, anxiety, heat sensitivity, tremors, and fatigue. Hypothyroidism is associated with weight gain, fatigue, cold sensitivity, dry skin, constipation, depression, and muscle weakness. Not everyone with thyroid issues experiences all these symptoms, and they can overlap with other conditions.

What are hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism?

Hyperthyroidism is when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone, leading to symptoms like rapid heart rate and weight loss. It's often caused by conditions like Graves' disease. Treatment may include medication, radioactive iodine, or surgery. Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland doesn't produce enough thyroid hormone, causing fatigue, weight gain, and dry skin. Common causes include Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Treatment involves thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Both conditions are manageable with proper medical care.

I am not getting enough blood from my finger, what can I do?

Ensure optimal conditions for the blood draw: Hold your hand under warm water for an extended period and gently rotate your arm to enhance blood circulation. When pricking the finger, aim for the side rather than the direct top of the fingertip. Typically, the middle or ring finger of the non-dominant hand is most suitable. While piercing, place your finger on a stable surface to prevent reflexive withdrawal. Applying a gentle squeeze and massaging towards the fingertip can facilitate blood flow.
