Thethyroid glands produce hormones from the iodine that is in the food we eat. Thethyroid produces two hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). Properlevels of these hormones are necessary to maintain the bodyÃŒÂ¢Ã‚â€°s metabolism andother functions.
Health Testing Centers offers the Thyroid Profile (T3 Uptake T4 and T7 test).This profile is a three part assessment of free thyroxine, T3 uptake (THBR) andthyroxine (T4). When the thyroid gland produces hormones, abnormallyfunctioning thyroids can over produce or under produce their hormones. Themalfunctioning thyroid gland can cause hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Signsof a malfunctioning thyroid can include weight loss or gain, dry skin andinsomnia.
When a thyroid is functioning abnormally, there are abnormal levels of T4, T3and free thyroxine. The Health Testing CentersÃŒÂ¢Ã‚â€° Thyroid profile is useful indetermining how the thyroid is functioning and the progress of any treatments.The profile is comprehensive and is ordered when there are symptoms of thyroidissues.
