Thyroid stimulating hormone(TSH) test is performed to evaluate the amount of TSH in the blood. The pituitary gland produces it. 2 types of hormones are the thyroid gland, i.e. Thyroxine and triiodothyronine. If the pituitary gland produces more TSH, the thyroid will produce more hormones. These two glands work together to produce the right amount of hormones. If this system is disrupted, the thyroid gland will produce either too much or too low amount of hormones. This test is often used to determine the cause of abnormal thyroid hormone levels.
