DIAGNOSIS TIROID (Diagnosis of Thyroid)

Liong Boy Kurniawan, Mansyur Arif

Abstract


Thyroid disease often causes unspecific or mild symptoms, so laboratory tests are needed to confirm the functional diagnosis of the
thyroid disorder. The laboratory tests which are important to establish the diagnosis of thyroid disorder include: total and free thyroid
hormones, its related (thyroid) hormone binding proteins and auto antibodies. The thyroid hormone tests are mostly measured with
competitive or sandwich immunoassays and each method can be interfered by several factors. Some drugs may increase or decrease the
thyroid functional tests and several factors such as: underlying diseases, age, pregnancy, occurrence of heterophil antibody and auto
antibodies may also interfere the thyroid tests results. The interpretation of an unusual combination from thyroid stimulating hormone
such as free thyroxin and tri-iodothyronine results needs confirmation of underlying condition for establishing the right diagnosis. This
review is aimed to evaluate several factors which may influence the thyroid tests and interpretation.
