Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician after the results of thyroid blood test are analyzed.

What is a TSH test for thyroid function?
The Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) test measures the amount of circulating TSH to understand your overall thyroid health. TSH is a hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4 hormones, which work together to regulate your body’s energy usage. They also play an important role in:
- Controlling body weight
- The nervous system
How to read thyroid TSH results?
Usually, when your TSH results are higher than the normal range, it can mean your thyroid activity is low. Consequently, if your TSH results are low, it could mean your thyroid is hyperactive. T3 and T4 results can determine if you're suffering from a particular illness, which your doctor can explain in major detail.
Who should get their TSH tested?
People experiencing symptoms of hypothyroidism should get tested, these symptoms are:
- Weight gain
- Dry skin and hair
- Muscle weakness
- Trouble concentrating
Also, people experiencing symptoms of hyperthyroidism:
- Increased heart rate
- Weight loss
- Heat intolerance
If you are starting a new medication or undergoing treatment for a thyroid condition, talk with your doctor about getting a TSH test.
What are the implications of abnormal thyroid TSH testing results?
Abnormal thyroid TSH test results can be a symptom of an overactive or underactive thyroid, which may require further evaluation and possibly treatment. Abnormal thyroid TSH levels can have serious implications for your health and well-being if left untreated. They can affect your metabolism and your whole body’s function.
