Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Test

Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Test

TSH is an abbreviation for thyroid-stimulating hormone. TSH testing is a blood test that detects this hormone in the blood. The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in your throat which produces hormones that regulate how your body uses energy.

Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Test

It also helps regulate your weight, body temperature, muscle strength, and even your mood. TSH is produced in the pituitary gland of the brain. When your thyroid levels are low, the pituitary gland produces more TSH.

TSH production by the pituitary gland is reduced when thyroid levels are high. TSH levels that are too high or too low can indicate that your thyroid is not functioning properly.
