Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. TSH stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones, primarily thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) which support functions in the body including you weight, skin and hair, energy levels, mood and more. Measuring TSH levels in the blood is an important diagnostic tool for assessing thyroid function.
T4 (Thyroxine), a thyroid hormone, plays a vital role in regulating metabolism, body temperature and heart rate. It is also important for growth and development, particularly in the brain and nervous system. A T4 test is commonly combined with a TSH to more accurately reflex thyroid function.
Free T3 (triiodothyronine)
T3, the active form of thyroid hormone, plays an important role in regulating metabolism, body temperature, and heart rate. It increases the rate at which the body converts food into energy, and it stimulates the breakdown of fat for energy. T3 also helps to maintain normal growth and development, especially in the brain and nervous system and more.
Anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO) antibodies
Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies are produced by the immune system in response to an antigen (a substance that comes from outside the body). The immune system can mistakenly target and attack thyroid peroxidase which can cause inflammation and damage to the thyroid gland. Over time, this can lead to reduced production of thyroid hormones and the development of autoimmune thyroid disease, such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF-1)
Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) plays a key role in the growth and development of cells, tissues, and organs in the body. In addition to its role in growth and development, IGF-1 has been implicated in a variety of other physiological processes, such as metabolism, bone growth and remodeling, and immune function.
