Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

The TSH Cord Blood Test is a test that measures the level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in the blood. TSH is a hormone that helps regulate the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland produces hormones that are essential for the body to function properly.

The TSH cord blood test is used to diagnose a variety of diseases, including:

-Atherosclerosis
-Cancer
-Diabetes
-Heart disease
-Kidney disease
-Neurological disorders
-Stroke

The TSH cord blood test is typically done within the first day or two after birth. This test is used to screen for congenital hypothyroidism, which is a condition where the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones.

TSH levels are highest during the first few days after birth and then gradually decline. The normal range for TSH cord blood levels is 0.5-5.0 mIU/L.

There are a few things that can be done in order to lower TSH cord blood test results.

  • One option is to simply wait and retest later, as TSH levels can fluctuate throughout the day.
  • Another option is to try thyroid medication, which can help to lower TSH levels.
  • Finally, working with a healthcare professional to optimize iodine intake and/or supplementing with selenium may also help to lower TSH cord blood test results.
