Tsh Reflex Test
My doctor said my thyroid is enlarged and wants me to have a TSH reflex test done. What does this mean? What causes a thyroid to be enlarged?

Need more info: The TSH level needs to be looked at in the context of your other thyroid levels. If you are not on any medication this might be interpreted as normal but your level of free T4 and free T3 (liothyronine) as well as your thyroid antibodies need to be analyzed as well. If your free T4 and/or free T3 (liothyronine) levels are low, then the TSH level might not be reflecting exactly what is going on with your thyroid. ...Read more

What does "TSH with Reflex" mean and do I have to fast for this test? I had TT 2 years ago, diagnosed w/Hashimoto's 20 years ago.

This saves time and avoids repeated visits for blood draws. For thyroid testing alone, fasting is not required. ...Read more
