Introducing Advanced Thyroid Test: A Comprehensive Assessment for Thyroid Health
The Advanced Thyroid Test by GetTested measures four essential markers: TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone), fT3 (Free triiodothyronine), fT4 (Free Thyroxine), A-TPO (Antithyroid Peroxidase Antibodies), and A-TG (Antithyroglobulin Antibodies).
Understanding the Measured Markers
TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone): TSH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland, and it plays a vital role in regulating the thyroid gland’s activity. It stimulates the thyroid to produce and release thyroid hormones (T3 and T4). Abnormal TSH levels can indicate an overactive or underactive thyroid, which may lead to various health issues.
fT3 (Free Triiodothyronine): It measures the levels of free triiodothyronine, another essential thyroid hormone that, alongside fT4, is crucial in regulating the body’s energy and metabolism.
fT4 (Free Thyroxine): fT4 represents the portion of thyroid hormone that circulates freely in the bloodstream, not bound to proteins. It is a crucial component in evaluating thyroid function, as it directly affects metabolism, energy levels, and overall well-being. Monitoring fT4 levels helps assess the thyroid’s ability to produce and regulate thyroid hormones properly.
A-TPO (Antithyroid Peroxidase Antibodies): A-TPO are antibodies that target and attack the thyroid gland’s peroxidase enzyme, which is essential for producing thyroid hormones. The presence of A-TPO can indicate autoimmune thyroid diseases, such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, which may lead to an underactive thyroid.
A-TG (Antithyroglobulin Antibodies): A-TG are antibodies that target thyroglobulin, a protein used in the production of thyroid hormones. Elevated A-TG levels can also indicate autoimmune thyroid diseases and may contribute to thyroid dysfunction.
