Re: Q, best panel of tripod tests to request at endocrinologist tomorrow?


A typical comprehensive thyroid panel usually consists of the following and you can get it done for about $150 without a doc.

Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) - Evaluates overall thyroid function

Total Thyroxine (T4) - Measures the total amount of T4 produced by the thyroid gland

Free Thyroxine (T4) - Measures the amount of T4 available to the cells and tissues

Free Tri-iodothyronine (T3) - Measures the amount of T3 (the active form of the hormone) available to the cells and tissues

Reverse T3 - Measures the non-functioning form of the active hormone T3

Antithyroglobulin antibody (ATA) - Often measured along with TPO, these antibodies can attack proteins involved in the production of thyroid hormones rendering them dysfunctional

Thyroid Peroxidase antibody (TPO) - Often measured along with ATA, these antibodies can attack proteins involved in the production of thyroid hormones rendering them dysfunctional
