Advanced Thyroid Panel

 

What is an Advanced Thyroid Analysis?

Most thyroid testing in doctor’s offices only look at TSH and possibly T3 & T4.  The Advanced Thyroid Panel includes the following markers:

  • TSH
  • Free T3 + Free T4
  • Total T3 + Total  T4
  • Reverse T3
  • T3 Uptake
  • Thyroglobulin Antibodies
  • TPO Antibodies

This is the best, most comprehensive look at your thyroid available on the market.

Why complete this test?

To get a full-picture of your thyroid gland function and assess for under-working (hypothyroid) or over-working (hyperthyroid) to understand more of what is going on in your body’s hormonal system.

Symptoms of an under-active thyroid include:

  • swollen skin
  • tiredness/fatigue
  • hair loss
  • weight gain
  • dry skin
  • irregularity with menstruation in women

Symptoms of an over-active thyroid include:

  • anxiety
  • weight loss
  • shaking
  • weakness
  • sensitivity to light
  • eye problems (swollen eyes, irritation/dryness)
Who is this test right for?

This is for those who suspect that something is not right with their thyroid, but their doctor has tested  it and said “it’s fine.”

Also for those who is having a hard time asking for these specific labs to be run at your doctor’s office.
