Thyroid Testing

Our Thyroid Test Panel is an important panel of blood tests that evaluate how the thyroid is functioning. It is also used to help diagnose hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism (having an over-active or under-active thyroid).

The thyroid is an endocrine gland that not only controls metabolism, but also secrete hormones that are necessary for growth, development and nearly every physiological process in the body. It is no wonder that you want to check up on your thyroid when you feel imbalanced.

Who should take this test?

Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism -- too much thyroid activity and too little thyroid activity, respectively -- are cause for concern. Because your thyroid controls much of your metabolism, which plays a vital role in your overall health, it’s important to monitor thyroid function, as it is estimated that up to twelve percent of the population in the United States will develop thyroid disease during their lifetime. That’s almost fifteen million people who have thyroid problems that affect their metabolism and are unaware.

Anybody can experience thyroid issues but some people are more susceptible than others:

  • Women (up to 10 times more likely than men to have thyroid disorders)

  • People with a family history of thyroid issues

  • Adults aged 50+

  • Individuals with Type 1 Diabetes

  • Women who have been pregnant within the past 6 months

  • People being treated with lithium for six months or more

  • Those with iodine exposure or deficiency

  • Smokers

  • People who have been exposed to radiation therapy, especially around the neck
