About Test:

A comprehensive thyroid profile is a blood test that helps to evaluate the functioning of the thyroid gland. The test is conducted to measure level of thyroid hormones in the blood. The thyroid profile helps inform patients & their doctors about healthy functioning of the thyroid gland, and alert them in case of the presence of excess or low levels of thyroid hormones, and autoimmune disorders.

Medical condition:

NA

Test preparation:

No test preparation is required

Components Included:

T3:

This blood test measures total levels of T3, both free and bound. While high levels may indicate hyperthyroidism, it is harder to make conclusions based on low levels, as 25% of the population may have low total T3.

T4:

This blood test measures total T4 levels, both free and bound. HighT4is seen in hyperthyroidism, increased TGB (Thyroxin binding globulin, to which T4 binds) and in pituitary tumors. Low T4 is seen in hypothyroidism or nephrotic kidney issues.

TSH:

This blood test measures levels of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, which promotes secretion of T3 and T4. Normal TSH rules out thyroid issues, but high levels are seen in hypothyroidism or pituitary disorders. Low levels are seen in hyperthyroidism, or hypothyroidism due to pituitary or hypothalamic issues. This test is also used to screen for hyperthyroidism in newborns.

FT3:

This blood test measures the usable or unbound T3. Protein levels do not affect free T3 levels, and thus they accurately indicate hypo (low levels) or hyperthyroidism (high levels).

FT4:

This blood test measures the usable or unbound T4. Protein levels do not affect free T4 levels, and thus they accurately indicate hypo (low levels) or hyperthyroidism (high levels).

TPO:

This test helps to measure levels of Anti TPO (Antimicrosomal/ Anti-thyroperoxidase) antibodies that cause autoimmune thyroid disorders by attacking the thyroid. TPO is very important information of thyroid hormones. In Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Riedel’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease and Addison’s disease, this test can return positive.

ATG:

This blood test measures levels of the Antithyroglobulin antibody (ATG), which can cause autoimmune thyroid issues.

Thyroglobulin helps in creating and storing T3 and T4 hormones. High ATG is seen in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, thyroid cancer, thyrotoxicosis, Graves’ disease or subacute thyroiditis.

About Disease

Role of the thyroid:

The thyroid is a very small gland, but it is quite important for our health. The two hormones secreted by the thyroid, T3 and T4, help to maintain body temperature, heart rate, as well as how it uses the energy we get from food. TSH, produced by the pituitary gland which regulates the other endocrine glands within the body, helps to maintain stable levels of these hormones within the body.

Issues with the Thyroid Hyperthyroidism:

Characterized by the presence of excess thyroid hormones. Symptoms include: Appetite change (decrease or increase), Fatigue, difficulty sleeping (insomnia), Frequent bowel movement, Heart palpitations, Increased sweating, Irritability, Tremors, Vision change, Weight loss/gain, Thinning of hair, Itching, and hives, Fertility problems, Shortness of breath, Dizziness

Hypothyroidism:

Characterized by lower levels of thyroid hormones. Symptoms include Fatigue, Increased sensitivity to cold, Constipation, Dry skin, Weight gain, Muscle/ joint weakness, High blood cholesterol, Thinning hair, Slowed heart rate, Depression, Impaired memory and Enlarged thyroid.
