TSH is a laboratory analysis that measures a chemical substance in the blood called thyroid stimulating hormone. The test provides you with an accurate, convenient, and inexpensive way to measure your TSH level. The amount of TSH present is directly related to both hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid).
This test will help you and your healthcare provider identify and/or monitor an underactive or overactive thyroid condition. Symptoms of a possible thyroid condition include: unexplained weight gain/loss; fatigue; dry skin; heart palpitations; sensitivity to heat or cold; inability to lose weight; depression; hair loss; and insomnia.
The specimen collection process is quick, easy and virtually painless. Using the special lancet (included in the Blood Collection Kit), four drops of blood are taken from a nick of a finger and deposited onto a special collection card. The card is then sent to our CLIA Laboratory for analysis. Our Laboratory tests your blood sample to see how much TSH is present and then your results will be available online in an easy-to-read, understandable report.
Price includes; Laboratory report, blood collection card; blood sample return bag; easy to understand instructions; alcohol prep; gauze pad; 2 lancets; adhesive bandage shipping; and postage paid return mail envelope.
Disclaimer: New York State Law prohibits the testing of specimens collected in or mailed from New York State, and prohibits the transmission of data from our laboratory to the physicians or residents. Therefore, we are unable to process such orders at this time.
