What does it measure?
The Free Thyroid Profile test: Measures the levels of the following three hormones in the blood: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Thyroxine (T4)-Free, Triiodothyronine (T3)-Free. The thyroid gland (a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in front of the neck) secretes the following hormones: Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4). Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is a hormone that is secreted into the blood by the pituitary gland (a gland present in the brain). It directs the thyroid glands to produce and release the thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) into the bloodstream. The iodine from the food stimulates the thyroid glands to produce thyroid hormones.Thyroid hormones regulate the growth and metabolism of the body. If the thyroid gland produces high amounts of these hormones (T3 and T4), you may experience the symptoms of weight loss, rapid heartbeat, tremors, sweating, anxiety, increased sensitivity towards heat, etc. which is known as hyperthyroidism.
