Laboratory Tests in Thyroid Disease Diagnosis

Laboratory tests 1 Laboratory tests used in the diagnosis of thyroid disease can be divided into two main groups of tests: thyroid and parathyroid gland (T4, T3, fT4, fT3, TSH and TRH test, parathormone) and tests to detect the cause of the disease ( anti-TPO, anti-Tg, Tg, and calcitonin).

When these hormones are elevated, we are talking about hyperthyroidism (enhanced function) and hyperparathyroidism, and when hypotensive (decreased function) and hypo-pragmatic thyroidism are reduced. TSH or thyroid stimulating hormone is a hormone that is raised by the pituitary (part of the brain) and its low blood levels speak of hyperthyroidism and high levels of hypothyroidism. When determining the cause of thyroid disease positive anti-Tg and anti-TPO tests indicate an autoimmune disease (Thyreoiditis chronica Hashimoto or Morbus Basedow-Graves). Determination of thyroglobulin (Tg) and calcitonin from Laboratory Tests 2 is of great significance for the diagnosis and monitoring of operated thyroid cancer, meaning that Tg indicates the possibility of metastasis or the return of the disease (papillary or follicular carcinoma), and higher calcitonin to metastases or the return of medullary cancer.

Thanks to a modern and fast laboratory, you get the results of thyroid hormone analysis for 30 minutes, thyroglobulin and antibodies for 40min, so there is no need for another arrival, thus we are  saving your time!!!
