About Test:

A thyroid function test is a blood test that helps to evaluate the functioning of the thyroid gland. The test is conducted to measure the level of thyroid hormones in the blood. This helps to inform patients about the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland, and alert them in case of the presence of excess or low levels of thyroid hormones. The thyroid function test involves 3 tests – Total T3, Total T4 and TSH.

About Disease

Role of the thyroid:
The thyroid is a very small gland, but it is quite important for our health. The two hormones secreted by the thyroid, T3 and T4, help to maintain body temperature, heart rate, as well as how it uses energy that we get from our food. TSH, produced by the pituitary gland which regulates the other endocrine glands within the body, helps to maintain stable levels of these hormones within the body.
 
Symptoms to watch out for:

Hyperthyroidism: Decrease or increase in Appetite change (decrease or increase), Fatigue, difficulty sleeping (insomnia), Frequent bowel movements, Heart palpitations, Increased sweating, Irritability, Tremors, Vision change, Weight loss/gain, Thinning of hair, Itching and hives, Fertility problems, Shortness of breath, Dizziness.
