What Does a Thyroid Test Measure?

The thyroid antibody test measures the levels of three hormones in the blood:

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), also known as Thyrotropin, is secreted by the pituitary gland into the bloodstream. It instructs the thyroid gland to produce and release T3 and T4 into circulation

Thyroxine (T4) & Triiodothyronine (T3) - The thyroid gland plays a vital role in the synthesis of the T3 and T4 hormones present in the blood. These two hormones are present in two forms, the first is bound form and the other one is free form.

  • Bound form- The bound form is caused by proteins in the blood tying it to them and preventing it from entering into tissues. Thyroid hormones are coupled to three proteins in the blood: albumin, transthyretin, and Thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG), also known as Thyroid hormone Binding Globulin (THBG).
  • Freeform- In free form, it enters the body tissues where it is required. The total T3 or total T4 circulating in the blood contains both bound and free forms

What is the normal range of thyroid function test?

The normal range of thyroid profile tests including all three parameters T3, T4, and TSH are-

Triiodothyronine (T3) total reference ranges with age
T4 (Thyroxine), total reference range

The person will be asked to roll up one sleeve to draw blood. Blood is drawn from a vein which is called venipuncture.

Also, Redcliffe Labs provides a facility for thyroid tests at home where technicians will visit your home to collect blood samples.

After the test, the person will be able to resume his daily routine.
