Description:

Thyroid Basic Panel with TSH

The Thyroid Basic Panel with TSH includes several common tests which evaluate Thyroid function and can aid in the diagnosis of thyroid disorders.

This panel includes:

  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH): Produced by the pituitary gland and aids the thyroid gland in producing T4 and T3
  • 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 with TSH is typically 1-3 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Requirements:

It is recommended that someone taking Biotin (also known as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H, or coenzyme R) stop consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.

Specimen collection after fluorescein dye angiography should be delayed for at least 3 days. For people on hemodialysis, specimen collection should be delayed for 2 weeks.
