basically shows how the thyroid is functioning and processing hormone. When i had mine done i scored a 5. Its on a scale to 100. So 5 means thst my thyroid wasnt really doing anything. A person with a perfect thyroid would score a 100.
Its a pain in the next procedure but im glad i had it done as it told me the thryoid wasnt working anyway and it was okay to have it removed. I had really bad pain so once the thyroid came out, the pain left as well.
you have to be very specific and follow the instructions that they give you 100%. No hormone for 6 weeks prior to the test.
