Thyroid Function Tests

Thyroid is an endocrine gland located in the neck of human body. These glands secret the growth hormones and are responsible for controlling the level of metabolism and protein synthesis. It secrets two hormones- T3 and T4 and produces calcitonin. The output of thyroid is regulated by TSH which is secreted by anterior pitutuary gland.
The Thyroid Profile test conducted at Whole Body Check Up screen the activity of T3, T4 and TSH hormones. These are helpful in detecting hypo- or hyper-thyroidism.
