Understanding Thyroid Profile Total (T3, T4 & TSH) in Asansol


What is Thyroid Profile Total (T3, T4 & TSH) in Asansol?

The Thyroid Profile Total (T3, T4 & TSH) is a standard blood test that assesses the health of your thyroid gland and aids in diagnosing and managing thyroid disorders. It is available at an affordable price in Asansol with Tata 1mg labs. This test measures the levels of 3 hormones, namely thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroxine hormone (T4)- total, and triiodothyronine hormone (T3)- total that are responsible for regulating metabolism and other bodily functions.

Your doctor may suggest the Thyroid Profile Total (T3, T4 & TSH) when you have symptoms suggestive of a thyroid disorder, such as tiredness, mood swings, depression, muscle pain, nervousness, or anxiety. The test results and your symptoms will allow the doctor to identify and diagnose certain diseases, such as hyper or hypothyroidism, and manage the treatment for these diseases.

No special preparations are needed for the Thyroid Profile Total (T3, T4 & TSH). You may eat and drink as per your daily routine. On the day of the test, individuals on thyroid medications should take them at the time and dosage prescribed by their doctors.

What does Thyroid Profile Total (T3, T4 & TSH) measure?

Contains 3 tests

The Thyroid Profile Total (T3, T4 & TSH) measures the levels of three hormones in the blood, namely triiodothyronine hormone (T3) total, thyroxine hormone (T4) total, and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). T3 and T4 are thyroid hormones that help regulate metabolism and energy levels in the body. On the other hand, TSH is produced by the pituitary gland and stimulates the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4 hormones. The serum levels of the thyroid hormones and TSH have an inverse relationship, i.e., low T4 (as observed in hypothyroidism) and high T4 (as seen in hyperthyroidism) levels are associated with high and low TSH levels, respectively.

Triiodothyronine Total

The Triiodothyronine Total test measures triiodothyronine, also known as T3, hormone that is produced by the thyroid gland. T3 hormone plays an important role in regulating the body's metabolism, energy levels, and growth & development. It exists in the blood in two forms: free T3 and bound T3. Free T3 is not bound to proteins in the blood and is the active form of T3. Whereas, bound T3 is bound to proteins, such as albumin and thyroid hormone binding globulin (THBG), which prevent it from entering the body tissues.

TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) Ultrasensitive

The TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) Ultrasensitive test measures the levels of TSH hormone in the blood. TSH is produced by the pituitary gland located in the brain. Its function is to stimulate and regulate the functioning of the thyroid gland. It signals the thyroid gland to increase or decrease the production of thyroid hormones T3 and T4 (essential for regulating our body’s metabolism, temperature, heart rate, and growth) when their levels are low or high, respectively. Therefore, when the levels of T3 & T4 decrease, the pituitary gland is stimulated to release TSH. This high TSH level, in turn, stimulates the thyroid gland to release more thyroid hormones (T3 & T4); the vice-versa happens when the levels of thyroid hormones increase.

Thyroxine - Total

The Thyroxine - Total test measures both the bound and unbound/free form of thyroxine (T4) hormone in the blood. T4 exists in the blood in two forms: bound (attached to proteins) and free (not attached to proteins). Most of the T4 circulating in the blood is bound to proteins and only a small part is free. It is necessary to maintain a fine balance of these forms to ensure the proper functioning of the body.
