Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is the primary hormone of your pituitary gland that regulates the function of your thyroid gland. Physicians depend on the serum TSH test because it keeps the production of all the other hormones in check. Also, the hormone acts as the signalling molecule that guides your thyroid gland to release other thyroid hormones in the blood. Hence, the serum TSH test is an essential parameter for understanding the functioning of the thyroid gland.
Maintaining the health of your thyroid gland is very important because it has a vital role in regulating your body’s metabolism and other functions. Thus, constant fatigue, restlessness, depression, anxiety, and sudden weight gain are common symptoms to make you undergo a serum TSH test. If there are sufficient thyroid hormones in the body, TSH levels are under control. However, if thyroid hormones are low or excess, a serum TSH test will return abnormal results.
A serum TSH test allows the physician to diagnose a severe problem related to the thyroid gland without the onset of symptoms. Moreover, this test is also suitable for confirming or ruling out hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. At Apollo 24|7, the TSH test price has been kept competitive for anyone to get tested at regular intervals.
