Thyroid Function Tests - TFT 

Thyroid Blood Test

The thyroid function test is a blood test which checks the level of the hormones made by your thyroid gland and the levels of a hormone (TSH thyroid stimulating hormone) made by the pituitary gland in your brain. These two hormones finely balance the right amount of thyroxine production in the thyroid gland to maintain healthy bodily functions.

What is Thyroid Gland?

The thyroid is a small butterfly shaped gland at the front of your neck below the voice box. It releases hormones that get produced into your stream. These hormones will regulate metabolism of your body and help keep bodily functions such as – breathing, heartbeat, digestion, body weight, cholesterol levels, menstrual cycle and temperature working normally.

How Will It Work?

The thyroid gland in your endocrine system produces and secretes hormones into the blood.

The production of these hormones is generally triggered due to the release of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone or (TSH) from the pituitary gland in your brain.

The thyroid gland can be overactive – resulting in hyperthyroidism or underactive – resulting in hypothyroidism.

These conditions usually have different physical manifestations.

If the thyroid hormone levels in your blood are unusual, then prescription medication might be needed for this imbalance. The treatment may be effective in balancing thyroid hormones that can cause significant improvement in overall well-being.
