Curated by Dr Rajkumar, Apollo Thyroid Assessment - Essential package consists of tests like TSH, T3, T4, vitamin D, thyroid peroxidase, thyroglobulin antibody, and CBC, which are essential to identify the levels of thyroid hormones in the body. These tests are recommended for people suffering from or with a family history of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. People experiencing unexplained weight gain or loss should also take this test.
The thyroid assessment essential test is a diagnostic evaluation that checks if a person’s thyroid gland is functioning properly. The thyroid is a small endocrine gland located at the lower part of the neck. This gland plays a major role in regulating the development and metabolism of the human body.
The gland releases certain hormones that enable the body to optimally utilise energy. Despite being small, the thyroid gland facilitates several biological processes inside the body. Therefore, it is crucial to keep the thyroid healthy to ensure overall well-being. You can also opt for the Apollo Thyroid Assessment-Essential test which includes 36 diagnostic evaluations to get a comprehensive picture of the health and functioning of your thyroid gland.

Certain conditions may lead to hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. For instance, the former is often caused due to Graves’ disease. This disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks the thyroid gland. Hyperthyroidism is a serious condition, and if left untreated, it could lead to severe health complications such as blood clots in the heart, heart failure, stroke, double vision, or eye pain.
Hypothyroidism is also caused due to an autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto’s disease. This condition is serious and often chronic or lifelong. If hypothyroidism is neglected, it could damage the peripheral nerves – a condition called peripheral neuropathy. This leads to numbness and tingling in the legs and arms. In women, untreated hypothyroidism may lead to infertility issues.
