Why Do a Comprehensive Thyroid Test?
Using a basic thyroid blood test that checks for TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) will give you a basic understanding of your overall thyroid function. If TSH is over 1.8, you may be suffering from hypothyroid symptoms and benefit from natural thyroid support. It can be very beneficial to also test for Free T3 and Free T4 which are made in the liver as they also affect thyroid function. If either Free T3 or Free T4 are low you may be suffering from hypothyroid symptoms, even if TSH is within normal limits.
Understanding Thyroid Tests:
If TSH is high, it means the thyroid gland is slowing down and there may be hypothyroid symptoms.
If Free T4 or Free T3 are low it can also mean the thyroid gland is slow and there may be hypothyroid symptoms.
If TSH is very low this indicates hyperthyroid which is usually auto immune based. This means the thyroid is working too fast.
If Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) ab or Thyroid Antithyroglobulin ab are positive this indicates autoimmunity against the thyroid gland.
We also look at IgF-1 which is a good indicator for Pituitary function. If this level is low it can cause the entire endocrine system to slow down and give you hypothyroid symptoms even if the thyroid is functioning just fine.
