Hypothyroidism panel is used to identify genetic variants associated with hypothyroidism, a condition characterized by an underactive thyroid gland that produces insufficient amounts of thyroid hormone. Hypothyroidism can be caused by a variety of factors, including autoimmune disease, radiation therapy, and genetic mutations. This panel tests for genetic variants associated with congenital hypothyroidism, a rare form of the condition that is present at birth, as well as variants that can increase the risk of developing hypothyroidism later in life.
This panel is recommended for individuals with a family history of hypothyroidism or individuals with symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, and sensitivity to cold. Early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent complications such as heart disease and mental health issues. Genetic testing can also inform family planning decisions and provide reassurance for unaffected family members.
