What is thyroid function Testing?
Your thyroid is responsible for regulating metabolism, mood, and energy generation in the body. It does this through the production of two hormones, commonly referred to as T3 and T4. Over- or under-production of these hormones can indicate a thyroid disorder or point to other medical conditions. A blood test is performed to determine the levels of T3 and T4 being produced by the body. Tests will likely also check for TSH, or thyroid-stimulating hormone, as well. Any abnormalities in this test will require further testing to determine the exact issue.
