TSH CHECK is a rapid test for the detection of hypothyroidism. TSH CHECK assesses the presence of elevated thyroid-stimulating hormone TSH, >5μIU/mL levels in a whole blood sample.
The thyroid plays a central role in the control of the metabolism. Malfunctions can therewith influence the whole body. To detect hyper-or hypofunctions, TSH is a reliable indicator. TSH gets secreted by the pituitary gland and stimulates the thyroid to produce the hormones T3 and T4.
Whenever the concentration of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 drops, TSH levels rise.
