THYROID TESTS

  Do you have a low thyroid function?

  • Are you feeling tired or exhaustion?

  • Are you feeling overwhelmed by small things ?

  • Are you experiencing hair loss

  • Do you have dry skin

  • Are you losing or gaining weight ?

 

If so, you may be experiencing a poor thyroid function which can, if left, lead to more severe symptoms.

The Thyroid Test can test if you have a low thryoid or sluggish thyroid function by testing for active T3 and inactive T4 (GP's only measure for inactive T4). Therefore, this test is ideal if you are experiencing sluggishness, weight gain or hair loss, dry skin and fatigue.

URINE THROID HORMONES T3/T4

Urine Specimen

CODE: end08

The elevation of thyroid hormone levels in urine, assesses tissue exposure to thyroid hormones over a 24-hour period (T3/T4). The urine thyroid test therefore serves as a valuable tool for detecting those people that are suffering from thyroid dysfunction, particularly low grade hypothyroidism who might otherwise go undetected through standard blood tests (T4 only). It is important to use this test as an adjunct to other indicators of thyroid function, such as body temperature and symptomology. See the Adrenal-Thyroid Profile for underlying Adrenal Stress that may be contributing to Thyroid imbalances.

URINE THROID HORMONES T3/T4 + IODINE

Saliva Specimen

CODE: end026

A cost effective method of combining the urine thyroid hormone test (T3/T4) with urinary iodine. Iodine is vital for optimal thyroid health and deficienies are often implicated in hypothyroidism. An Adrenal Stress Test may be also recommended to test for underlying Adrenal Stress which can contribute to thyroid imbalances.

ADRENAL - THYROID PROFILE

Saliva Specimen

CODE: end05

The Adrenal Thyroid Profile consists of the Adrenal Stress Profile (cortisol and DHEA) as well as testing for urinary active T3 thyroid hormone levels, which can give an accurate reflection of your overall thyroid hormone levels. Adrenal evaluation is commonly considered for people with fatigue and a host of other health complaints resulting from a history of chronic psychological or physiological stress. Adrenal evaluation is also vital for people with hypothyroidism, due to the close interaction of these endocrinal systems.
