What tests are included in the package?

  • TSH – the most sensitive test to detect thyroid dysfunction (including asymptomatic disorders), and monitor and evaluate the efficacy of hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism treatment. The tests do not require fasting but they should preferably be done in the morning.
  • FT4 test – used to diagnose and monitor the treatment of thyroid diseases. High FT4 levels indicate hyperthyroidism, while low FT4 levels are a sign of hypothyroidism.
  • anti-TPO antibodies – determination of the level of autoantibodies targeted against thyroid antigens. Anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO) antibodies are the body’s specific antibodies to thyroid peroxidase (TPO).

All the tests are done on a blood sample.
