Standard protocols in India generally use TSH to screen for the presence of thyroid disease. Many doctors 👨⚕️ may check for Total T3 and Total T4. But this is not a complete profile of the thyroid panel and does not give a complete picture of thyroid function.
Many doctors are prescribing the medication 💊 based on the TSH value only. That's why even after taking the medication, 60% of patients still report persistent symptoms🤒.
Hence, our first step at Jeevam Health is to perform a complete profile, without cutting any corners. This includes testing for TSH, T3, T4, free T3, free T4, Anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO) & Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TgAb). Thyroid antibody tests are required to rule out the autoimmune condition.
