Lipid Profile Test A Lipid Profile Test Or A Lipid Panel Is A Series Of Blood Tests That Serves As An Initial Broad Medical Screening Tool For Abnormalities In Lipids, Such As Cholesterol And Triglycerides. These Tests Measure The Total Amount Of Fatty Substances (cholesterol And Triglycerides) In The Blood. The Results Of This Test Also Helps Identifying Some Genetic Diseases. It Also Determines Approximate Risks For Cardiovascular Disease, Certain Forms Of Pancreatitis, And Other Diseases. The Lipid Profile Typically Include Low-density Lipoprotein (LDL), High-density Lipoprotein (HDL), Triglycerides And Total Cholesterol edit Delete

Thyroid Test A Thyroid Test Is Done To Check If The Thyroid Glands Are Producing Enough Hormones That Are Essential For Normal Body Metabolism. Thyroid Blood Testing Is Done To Determine The Adequacy Of The Thyroid Hormone Levels. These Tests Then Define Whether An Individual's Thyroid Gland's Hormone Produce Is Under Active, Normal Or Overactive. Ques1->What are thyroid hormones?
Ans1->The hormones produced by

The hormones produced by thyroid glands are known as thyroid hormones. The thyroid glands are located in the lower part of the human neck, just below the Adam's apple (to be precise). These butterfly shaped glands wraps the windpipe (trachea). The thyroid gland uses iodine (mostly available in the salt , seafood and breads) to produce thyroid hormones. The most important thyroid hormones for a human body are thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), which account for 99.9% and 0.1% of thyroid hormones present in the blood respectively. The hormone with the most biological activity is T3. Once released from the thyroid gland into the blood, most of the T4 gets converted into T3 (the hormone that affects the metabolism of cells)

Ques2->What are the symptoms of hypothyroidsm?
Ans2->Hypothyroidsm can be susp

Hypothyroidsm can be suspected in patients or individuals with fatigue, cold intolerance, constipation, and dry, flaky skin. However, a blood test is mandatory to confirm the diagnosis.

Ques3->How is hypothyroidsm diagnosed?
Ans3->In case of hypothyroidism

In case of hypothyroidism, the blood levels of thyroid hormones can be measured directly and are usually decreased. However, in some cases (at an early hypothyroidism), the levels of thyroid hormones i.e. T3 & t$ may appear normal. Hence, the main test that determines or the main tool to detect hyperthyroidism is the measurement of the TSH, the thyroid stimulating hormone. TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is secreted by the pituitary gland (in the brain). If there is a decrease of in thyroid hormone, the pituitary gland reacts to it and produces more TSH. Resulting which the TSH level in blood increases in an attempt to encourage thyroid hormone production.

Ques4->Is there any other test of the thyroid gland?
Ans4->The blood test confirms t

The blood test confirms the deficiency or an excess of thyroid hormones to diagnose hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Further tests may be done to find out an underlying cause or any other sever abnormality relating to thyroid hormones or the thyroid gland.

Ques5->How to know if a person has an abnormal thyroid?
Ans5->Well, it is difficult to

Well, it is difficult to tell if a person has thyroid abnormalities. However, if you notice certain symptoms like, tiredness, 'brain fog', weight gain, hair loss, feel hyper, anxiousness or lot of seating, then you may have thyroid disorder.The thyroid gland regulates many processes within the body, and women are particularly likely to have disorders that affect the function of this essential gland.

Ques6->Is it true that losing or gaining weight is a symptom for thyroid disorder?
Ans6->Yes, changes in weight ca

Yes, changes in weight can signal an abnormal function of the thyroid gland. Low level of thyroid hormones i.e. hypothyroidism can cause weight gain, whereas unexpected weight loss may signal hyperthyroidism i.e. there are too many thyroid hormones are being produced.

Ques7->What is more common hyperthyroidism or hyperthyroidism?
Ans7->Hypothyroidism is more co

Hypothyroidism is more common that hyperthyroidism.

Ques8->Is swollen neck also a symptom of thyroid disorder?
Ans8->Yes, a goiter(swollen nec

Yes, a goiter(swollen neck) is an enlargement of the thyroid gland. An enlarged thyroid gland can be seen as a swelling in the front of the neck just below the Adam's apple. A goiter may occur in both the abnormalities (hyperthyroidism & hypothyroidism).

Ques9->Does thyroid causes changes in the heart rate?
Ans9->Yes, the thyroid hormones

Yes, the thyroid hormones affect almost every organ in your body, including your heart. In case of hypothyroidism, you may notice the heart to beat slow. Whereas, hyperthyroidism causes a fast heartbeat. Elevated levels of thyroid hormones can also lead to increase in blood pressure and palpitations.

Ques10->What are the other symptoms of hypothyroidism?
Ans10->Thyroid disorders do affe

Thyroid disorders do affect your emotions, energy & moods and it can also cause symptoms like symptoms like depression, tiredness, and feeling sluggish.

Ques11->What are the symptoms of hyperthyroidism?
Ans11->Apart from the changes in

Apart from the changes in emotions, energy and mood, you may notice symptoms like sleep disturbances, irritability, anxiety, and restlessness.

Ques12->Is hair loss a common sign of a thyroid problem?
Ans12->Yes, both the levels i.e.

Yes, both the levels i.e. hyperthyroidism & hypothyroidism can lead to hair loss. But, the good news is that hair typically grows back once the condition is treated.

Ques13->Is there any Other sign or symptom of hypothyroidism?
Ans13->The other signs and sympt

The other signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism may include

  1. Constipation
  2. Changes or abnormalities in the menstrual cycle

Yes, untreated thyroid disorder may raise your cholesterol level and increase risks of an heart attack or a stroke. If your thyroid hormone levels drop to extreme lows, coma and a life-threatening lowering of body temperature can occur. Other complications of untreated hypothyroidism include a loss of bone density and heart problems.

Ques16->What are the normal values of a thyroid test?
Ans16->T4 (Serum thyroxine) : 4.

T4 (Serum thyroxine) : 4.6-12 ug/dl FT4F (Free thyroxine fraction) : 0.03-0.005% FT4 (Free Thyroxine) : 0.7-1.9 ng/dl THBR (Thyroid hormone binding ratio) : 0.9-1.1 FT4I (Free Thyroxine index) : 4-11 T3 (Serum Triiodothyronine) : 80-180 ng/dl FT3 (Free Triiodothyronine l) : 230-619 pg/d FT3I (Free T3 Index) : 80-180 RAIU (Radioactive iodine uptake) : 10-30% TSH (Serum thyrotropin) : 0.5-6 uU/ml TBG (Thyroxine-binding globulin) : 12-20 ug/dl T4 +1.8 ugm TSH (TRH stimulation test Peak) : 9-30 uIU/ml at 20-30 min Tg (Serum thyroglobulin l) : 0-30 ng/m TMAb (Thyroid microsomal antibody titer) : Varies with method TgAb (Thyroglobulin antibody titer) : Varies with method
