Hypothyroidism - Diagnosis

Hypothyroidism can be diagnosed with blood tests which measure the amount of thyroid hormone. 
T4 (the main thyroid hormone that is produced by the thyroid gland) is expected to be low in hypothyroidism. 
TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is the master hormone gland that controls the thyroid gland. Both the T4 and TSH hormones are usually tested together.
