It seems like you might be referring to "TSH," which stands for Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. In an episode of the Mind Pump Podcast featuring Dr. Stephen Cabral, they discuss how TSH is typically tested through blood tests to assess thyroid health. Dr. Cabral explains that TSH levels reflect the amount of stress the thyroid is under either to produce more or less thyroid hormone. However, TSH alone doesn't provide a complete picture of thyroid health, so it's also important to look at other hormones like T3 and T4, as well as TPO antibodies for a comprehensive assessment 1.

Thyroid Blood Tests

Dr. Stephen Cabral explains the importance of blood tests in assessing thyroid health, as saliva tests cannot accurately test everything. Blood tests can measure TSH, T3, T4, TPO antibodies, hemoglobin A1C, and insulin levels, providing a more comprehensive picture of thyroid function. Cabral emphasizes the importance of preventative health measures, as thyroid dysfunction can go undetected for years.
