This test focuses on the assessment of thyroid function. The butterfly shaped thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck and is responsible mainly for producing hormones to control metabolic rate and growth. This test evaluates levels of TSH, free T4, free T3,reverse T3, TSH Receptor antibodies, Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies (TPO) and Anti-Thyroglobulin antibodies (ATG).
Some symptoms of a poorly functioning thyroid include:
