Expert Answer:

The proper functioning of the thyroid gland can be determined using blood tests.

They are:

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.
