The thyroid gland is one of the larger endocrine glands responsible for tons of processes in the body ranging from temperature regulation to the balancing of various hormones. Some consider this to be one of the master glands. We should not accept its low functioning lightly. Many people still feel awful or at least no-worse or better on their current prescription of Synthroid. Many times full thyroid panels are not completed and an inaccurate assessment of the condition is assumed. When visiting your endocrinologist please take the following list of tests with you for them to run: Thyroid Panel with TSH; Triiodothyronine (T3), Total; Thyroxine (T4), Free, Direct; Triiodothyronine (T3), Free; Thyroid Antithyroglobulin Antibody; Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) Antibody
– Synonyms: Thyroid Panel, Synthroid, Thyroid Panel with TSH, Triiodothyronine (T3), Thyroxine (T4), Thyroid Antithyroglobulin Antibody, Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) Antibody
