TSH Blood Test
The TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone) blood test is used to measure the levels of TSH hormone in the blood. TSH is produced by the pituitary gland and plays a crucial role in regulating the production of thyroid hormones, specifically T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). The TSH blood test is commonly used to assess thyroid function and diagnose thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).
