Thyroid Comprehensive Panel with Free

The Thyroid Comprehensive Panel with Free provides a more comprehensive series of tests that help to evaluate thyroid function.  This package is an excellent option for those who want a general thyroid assessment which offers more than the basic panel.

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
  • Free T3 and Free T4: Hormones produced by the thyroid gland. Free T3 and Free T4 are not bound to proteins in the bloodstream

This package provides a comprehensive series of tests for people who wish to evaluate their thyroid function. This panel also provides a more thorough screening for people experiencing symptoms associated with thyroid disorders.

Turnaround time for the Thyroid Comprehensive Panel with Free 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.
