Recommended by Dr Hussan, Apollo Thyroid Assessment - Advance includes tests such as total T3, T4 and TSH, free T3 and T4, CBC, Anti-Thyroglobulin antibody, and vitamin D that can help detect most types of thyroid disorders. The test is recommended for people suffering from or with a family history of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Pregnant women and people who have received radiation on the neck or upper part of the chest should also opt for this test.
The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland at the front of the neck. This gland produces the triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) hormones, significantly impacting our health.
TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone) triggers the gland to release the thyroid hormones. When the gland releases too many hormones, individuals experience hyperthyroidism. If the gland releases fewer hormones, individuals suffer from hypothyroidism. Both conditions can impact the entire body.
The thyroid hormone is responsible for the normal functioning of different organs and body parts. Some of the primary functions include:
While individuals of any age and gender can suffer from hypo or hyperthyroidism, certain risk factors make individuals more susceptible to the disease. Women older than 30 with a family history of thyroid disease are at high risk. Women who have delivered a baby or have been pregnant in the last few months can also have issues with thyroid hormones. Individuals who have received radiation on the neck or upper part of the chest are also known to have thyroid issues.
Since the thyroid hormone is responsible for regulating vital functions, it’s essential to keep the disease in check. The doctor or healthcare professional can diagnose the condition by running a thyroid test. It is a blood test that measures the thyroid hormone levels in the body.
Apollo 24|7 offers a complete thyroid package test at all the labs in the country. The thyroid package test consists of 35 important tests. The different tests include:
