Thyroid Basic Panel (Labcorp)
The Thyroid Basic Panel provides several common measurements used to evaluate thyroid function and aid in the diagnosis of disorders such as Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism.
This panel includes:
- T4 (Thyroxine): A hormone produced by the thyroid gland which helps maintain the body's metabolism as well as other systems and functions.
- T3 Uptake: Helps evaluate the amount of proteins in the blood which carry thyroid hormones throughout the body.
- Free Thyroxine (T4) Index: A comparison of the amount of T4 which is unbound or free to that which is bound to proteins in the blood.
This test is commonly ordered as a regular screening for healthy thyroid function or when someone is experiencing symptoms associated with thyroid disorders.
Turnaround time for the Thyroid Basic Panel is typically 1-3 business days.
