• TPOAb
  • The TSH, T3, T4, TSI and TPOab tests are used to assess thyroid function, according to the National Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases Information Service. (reference.com)
  • serum
  • This variability is partly due to physical examination (including thyroid examina- differences among studies in the definition of a low serum tion), and appropriate laboratory tests can help TSH value [1- (slideshare.net)
  • Thyroid function should be evaluated by measuring serum free T4, total T3 (or free T3), and TSH levels. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • Hyperthyroidism is confirmed with elevated serum total and free T4 and total T3 (or free T3) levels and suppressed TSH values. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • metabolism
  • Proteic metabolism: increase catabolism and anabolism (groth and development) Lipid metabolism: mobilization of lipids from fatty tissue and stimulates oxidation at cellular level. (slideplayer.com)
  • Glucidic metabolism: hyperglicemia (sinergistic with adrenaline - β-receptori), diabetes: newly developed or worsening Essential for the normal brain development (stimulated myelin production and neuronal ramifications) idiotism. (slideplayer.com)
  • disorder
  • The results of a thyroid function test help medical professionals assess thyroid function or determine the underlying cause of a thyroid disorder, states the National Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases Information Service. (reference.com)
  • thyrotoxicosis
  • Hypothyroxinaemia, which is common in the preterm infant, and thyrotoxicosis, which is rare, are important neonatal thyroid disorders. (bmj.com)
  • I will review neonatal thyrotoxicosis and, finally, give suggestions for the investigation of babies born to mothers with thyroid disease. (bmj.com)
  • abnormalities
  • From the second trimester, the continued transfer of T4 from mother to fetus remains important for those babies with primary thyroid abnormalities, as despite cord blood levels only reaching about 40% of normal in those with a total inability to synthesise T4, 3 neurological development is near normal if replacement is started promptly.
