El propósito de la revisión es el diagnóstico y tratamiento tempranos. Los exámenes de revisión por lo general se administran a personas sin síntomas actuales, pero que podrían estar en alto riesgo de ciertas enfermedades o condiciones.

Exámenes de Revisión

Medición de TSH (hormona estimulante de tiroides) - Con frecuencia, esto se realiza como parte de un examen sanguíneo de rutina. Un nivel bajo de TSH sugiere hipertiroidismo; por el contrario, un nivel alto de TSH sugiere hipotiroidismo.
