Abingdon Simply Test Thyroid is used for the easy and convenient self-testing of Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), a marker for an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism).
Thyroid stimulating hormone (also known as thyrotropin, thyrotropic hormone, TSH, or hTSH for human TSH) is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine (T4), and then triiodothyronine (T3) which stimulates the metabolism of almost every tissue in the body.
Testing of thyroid stimulating hormone levels in the blood is considered the best initial test for hypothyroidism.
