Your thyroid gland produces hormones that help control your metabolism — chemical processes that keep you alive, like digestion.
Why would you benefit from a Basic Thyroid test?
A basic thyroid test checks how well your thyroid is working. It can also be used to
monitor how well your thyroid is responding to thyroid disease medications. It does this by measuring your thyroid hormones.
What biomarkers are we looking at?
• Thyroid- Stimulating- Hormone (TSH)
• Free thyroxine (FT4)
