Toxic nodule usually suppress the normal thyroid tissue and as they are active, it subsequently results in uptake of nearly all the RAI by the toxic nodule while the normal thyroid gland is saved.11 Thus complete normalization of thyroid function test
prior to RAI may lead to higher incidence of developing hypothyroidism because of fading of this protective mechanism and it might have affected our results as well.
Clinical history, anti-TPO, thyroid function test
, and ultrasonography are very important and useful adjuncts in the diagnosis of HT.

On the 3[sup]rd day, thyroid function test
showed further raise in thyroid hormone and decreased TSH [Supplementary Table 1].
Regular thyroid function tests
must be assessed by a doctor to ensure that normal hormone levels are maintained and adjusted as needed.

Thyroid Function Tests
Market: Drivers & Restraints:
Changes in thyroid function tests
occur during pregnancy as a result of physiological alterations in several factors controlling thyroid homeostasis at this time.
The interpretation of the results of thyroid function tests
required an endocrinologist who is aware that high levels of TSH are sometimes transitory in Down syndrome .
Thyroid function tests
revealed a thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level of 0.01 mIU/mL (range 0.35-4.5 mIU/mL), free T4 of 2.7 ng/dL (range 0.6-1.2ng/dL), and free T3 levels of 3.7 pg/mL (range 2.1-4.1 pg/mL).
* Don't routinely order a thyroid ultrasound in patients with abnormal thyroid function tests
if there is no palpable abnormality of the thyroid gland.
Whole blood sample was collected and subjected to haemato-biochemical estimations and serum sample was subjected to thyroid function tests
such as estimation of [T.sub.3] and [T.sub.4].
