TFTS is an abbreviation for Thyroid Function Tests. It woudl depend on what thyroid test or tests were done. Do you have a list of the actual tests?

I am not a doctor, nor have I ever played one on TV...

Re: TFTS question

No, I will have these tomorrow. Basically all it had on the paper was a request for TFTS but no specifics. From what I read to have calcitonin measured is a seperate request. I will find out tomorrow and post the results.
