London Medical Laboratory Blood Test Thyroid Diagnosis and Monitoring
What can I expect from this Thyroid Function - Diagnosis and Monitoring?
This profile checks the function of your thyroid gland. Thyroid disorders are common but often remain undiagnosed. It will give you a good indication as to whether your thyroid is functioning normally or not by checking your levels of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and Free T4 (FT4).
These tests are mainly used to see whether or not you have an underactive thyroid gland (Hypothyroidism) or an overactive one (Hyperthyroidism) which can lead to tiredness, mood problems and weight issues.
