Thyroid Function Testing
The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in the front of the neck. It produces hormones that regulate metabolism, body temperature, and Heart rate. Function testing is used to assess how well the endocrine is working. This can be important for people experiencing endocrine dysfunction symptoms, such as fatigue, weight gain, or hair loss.
The most common test used to assess endocrine function is the TSH test. This measures the level of endocrine-stimulating hormone in the blood. TSH is produced by the pituitary gland and helps to regulate the thyroid gland’s production of thyroxine (T4). High levels of TSH may indicate an underactive endocrine (hypothyroidism), while low levels may indicate an overactive endocrine (hyperthyroidism). Other tests that may be used to assess endocrine function include Free T4 levels and endocrine Antibodies tests. These tests can help to confirm a diagnosis of endocrine dysfunction and guide treatment decisions.
Thyroid Cancer Screening
Endocrine cancer is relatively rare, but it is essential to know the signs and symptoms. Endocrine cancer usually presents as a lump or mass in the neck. Other symptoms may include hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, or persistent pain in the neck or throat. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please make an appointment with us so that we can assess your risk and provide the appropriate care.
