Explanation Of The Results Of Tsh In Children?
what is the normal number for what result? r nWhen is the result for the child 33.6 cash / ml what should be done? And what can the Tsh test be explained?
Thyroid hormone is a hormone that plays an important role in the regulation of metabolism in the body produced by the thyroid gland. This thyroid gland is located in the front part of the neck which produces hormones and is controlled by the brain in the pituitary.
TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), is a hormone produced by the pituitary. TSH has a function to stimulate the thyroid gland in producing thyroid hormones in the form of Triiodotironin (T3) and Thyroxine (T4), which are then spread throughout the body.
Thyroid hormones also affect the metabolism of our bodies. Such as :
Affects the heart rate, if excess thyroid hormone can increase heart rate Affects in muscle movement where if excess thyroid hormone will impact a person becomes shaking Affects the body's metabolism which can affect the heat and sweat production, and the feeling of fatigue faster if this thyroid hormone is produced excess If there is a disruption in the production of thyroid hormones such as lack of production (hypothyroidism), the levels of TSH, T3 and T4 will usually decrease below normal values, but if the production occurs excessively (hyperthyroidism) then the levels of TSH, T3 and T4 will increase above normal values.
The normal value of TSH in children is 0.6 to 5.5 uU / ml, so if the value of a child's TSH level is 33.6 uU / ml it can indicate an increase in TSH so it should be consulted directly to the pediatrician in order to get a medical evaluation and further handling.
So that I can convey, hopefully useful.
