Determination of fT3 and fT4 hormone levels is an important part of assessing thyroid dysfunction.
The main function of thyroid hormones is to stimulate our body – they are responsible for the amount of our basal metabolism.
Systematic testing of hormone levels is the key to your health!
Thyroid hormones have a very broad spectrum of effects on our body. They affect the cardiovascular system, endocrine system, hormone action and metabolism, and lipid profile. What’s more, they affect our musculoskeletal system or gastrointestinal function.
Proper treatment of thyroid dysfunction requires identification of the cause of the disease.
For this purpose, the concentration of thyroid hormones is tested and the possible presence of autoantibodies against thyroid peroxidase is determined. The thyroid tests included in the package enable identification of the cause of thyroid dysfunction and allow monitoring of the course of treatment.
Determination of the TSH level, i.e. thyrotropin hormone, is an extremely important element in the diagnosis of diseases of the thyroid gland. Abnormal values may indicate a dysfunction of this organ and should be consulted with a physician.
Thyroid tests are recommended primarily to persons who have symptoms suggesting a dysfunction of this organ. In addition, hypothyroidism (deficiency of thyroid hormones) or hyperthyroidism (excess of thyroid hormones) may be suspected on the basis of clinical symptoms. Patients with hypothyroidism often have problems with dry skin, swelling, fatigue, slowed movement, hair loss or brittle nails. Thyroid testing includes laboratory tests, imaging studies, and invasive tests.
A thyroid screening is a test for thyrotropin (TSH) levels, a pituitary hormone secreted in feedback with thyroid hormones. Which tests to do for the thyroid depends on individual indications.
