Thyroid Screening Blood Test

This female-only test measures your Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) levels to determine if you have an underactive or overactive thyroid — the organ that controls your metabolism — which can lead to autoimmune problems and chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.

This test measures a key biomarker to evaluate thyroid condition. We measure TSH, or Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone, which is the hormone that measures thyroid activity. Depending on how much of this hormone is in your blood, you have an underactive or overactive thyroid. imaware™ tests have been validated for accuracy against existing testing methods.
