    The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland at the front of the neck. This gland is responsible for producing the triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) hormones, which greatly impact our health.

    TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone) triggers the gland to control and release the thyroid hormones. When the gland releases too many hormones, individuals experience hyperthyroidism. If the gland releases less hormones, then individuals suffer from hypothyroidism. Both conditions can impact the entire body and are serious.

    The thyroid hormone is responsible for the normal functioning of different organs and body parts. Some of the primary functions include:

    • Regulation of body weight
    • Growth of hair and nails
    • Regulation of heart rate
    • Controlling menstrual cycles
    • Maintaining cholesterol levels
    • Regulation of body temperature


    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 7 important tests. The different tests include:

    • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Serum: This test measures the level of thyroid hormones in the body and rules out the possibilities of hyper or hypothyroidism.
    • Free T4 (FT4): T4 or thyroxine is the hormone produced by the thyroid gland. This test evaluates the thyroid functioning in the body.
    • Free T3 (FT3): This test measures hyperthyroidism by measuring the T3 or triiodothyronine hormone produced by the thyroid gland.
    • Anti-Thyroglobulin Antibody: This test evaluates signs of damage to the thyroid gland. The doctor prescribes this test to check gland inflammation, commonly called thyroiditis.
    • Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (Anti Microsomal Antibodies): Thyroid Peroxidase is an enzyme in the thyroid gland. The levels of antibodies determine the type of thyroid disease you have.
    • Complete Blood Count (CBC): This includes 24 tests that measure the haemoglobin, RBC, total Leucocyte count and other essential components of the blood. This detects a wide range of disorders and helps to evaluate infection, anaemia and overall health.
    • Lipid Profile: This test measures the cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.

    Endocrinologists can diagnose, manage and treat the condition of the thyroid in patients. Your general practitioner may recommend a thyroid package test as part of a routine check-up even when you do not show any symptoms.

    There is no special preparation required for the thyroid test. The blood test can be done at home or clinic. Follow up with an endocrinologist once the test results are out.

    Frequently asked questions

    Hashimoto's thyroiditis happens when the body makes antibodies that attack the thyroid hormones. As a result, the body starts releasing an insufficient amount of thyroid hormones needed to perform vital functions. This leads to unexplained weight gain, tiredness, muscular weakness and Goiter (swollen thyroid glands).
    A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm to take the blood sample. Next, the patient is asked to make a fist for the buildup of blood in the veins. This makes it easy to collect the blood. Next, the skin is sanitized before inserting the needle in the vein to prevent germs from entering the body. The needle is then inserted into the vein and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    If the thyroid hormone test is neglected, the increase or decrease in the levels of T3, T4 and TSH might go unnoticed, thereby, hampering proper medication at the right time. This might have severe impact on your overall health.
    Yes. The fluctuations of thyroid level may cause tiredness and fatigue in people with underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). This is because the body's metabolism slows down. This can often lead to many symptoms, including lethargy and fatigue.
    Yes, Goiter is also a thyroid disease. It is caused due to an enlarged thyroid gland below the neck.
    An endocrinologist or should be consulted if you suspect an abnormal rise or fall in T3, T4 & TSH values.
