Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Test (TSH TEST)

TSH TEST is a blood test that is used to know the overall function of the thyroid gland by measuring the level of thyroid stimulating hormone.

Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone ( TSH) is produced when the hypothalamus releases a substance called thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH). TRH then triggers the pituitary gland to release TSH.

TSH stimulates production of thryoxine (T4) and triiodothyronine by the thyroid. These hormones stimulate tissue metabolism in the body.

Hypothyroidism is another word for under-active thyroid. Its symptoms are weight gain,fatigue, dryness of the skin, constipation, intolerance to cold, and/or frequent menstrual period. Common cause of hypothyroidism is the Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

Hyperthyroidism is another word for an overactive thyroid. Its symptom is weight loss, rapid heart rate, diarrhea, intolerance to heat, and/or irregular menstrual periods.
