TFTs are generally prescribed when a patient is suspected of abnormal level of thyroid hormones. Abnormal levels of thyroid hormones in the body can cause either hyperthyroidism (high level of thyroid hormones) or hypothyroidism (low level of thyroid hormones). Evaluation of thyroid function can be done by determining the concentration of thyroid and thyroid-related hormones. TFTs are prescribed for both the diagnosis and monitoring of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. This market includes sub-segments Thyroid Stimulation Hormone (TSH) Tests, Free Thyroxine (FT4) Tests, Total Thyroxine (TT4) Tests, Free Triiodothyronine (FT3) Tests, Total Triiodothyronine (TT3) Tests, and other Thyroid Function Tests.
