SD Bioline Neonatal TSH( 25T)

One Step Neonatal TSH Test

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is secreted by the anterior lobe of the pituitary

gland and induces the production and release thyroid hormones thyroxin (T4) and

triiodothryronine (T3). These thyroid hormones exert a negative feedback on the

pituitary. The determination of serum or plasma levels of TSH is recognised as a sensitive method in the diagnosis of primary and secondary hypothyroidism. Primary Congenital Hypothyroidism (CH) occurs in 1 out of every 3,000 to 7,000 infants and is caused by athyroidism and hypoplasia. If infants are screened for this disorder during their first month, then irreversible mental retardation can be prevented through early diagnosis and proper treatment.
