The proper functioning of the thyroid gland can be determined using blood tests.
i) Thyrotropin (thyroid stimulating hormone, or TSH, the pituitary hormone that controls the activity of the thyroid gland). The normal levels range from 1 to 6 mU/L.
ii) Free thyroxine (FT4, a thyroid hormone produced by the gland). Normal levels are 1 to 3 ng/dL.
iii) Free triiodothyronine (FT 3, another hormone produced by the thyroid) normal levels are 75 to 200 ng/dL.
