Detailed Explanation of Complete Thyroid Test Panel

TPO and Anti-TG Antibodies, Hashimoto’s Screen:

Hashimoto's hypothyroidism is affecting people from all age groups at an alarming rate. As the immune system attacks the thyroid gland over time, you may develop low thyroid symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, constipation, slow metabolism, swelling, increased sensitivity to cold, and depression.

Even though Hashimoto's disease constitutes over 80% of all hypothyroid cases, it is rarely being tested. In many cases, these antibodies are elevated for many years before changes in T4 or TSH happen. Sadly the standard of care in our current healthcare system is to only test for TSH and T4, thus missing critical opportunities for early intervention.

Symptom fluctuation, a medicine cabinet full of medication and supplements, and doctors not being able to correctly diagnose you, are signs that you may have an autoimmune condition.

There is a close familial link to Hashimoto's hypothyroidism, so it is recommended that all family members be screened.

TSH Testing:

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is released from the pituitary gland that tells your thyroid to produce more thyroid hormones. The higher the TSH, the more hormones the pituitary gland is asking the thyroid to make. When there are excess thyroid hormones, TSH will go down.


TSH is typically run when one is experiencing low thyroid symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue and depression or hyperthyroid-type symptoms like weight loss, increased heart rate and insomnia. In standard medicine, TSH is used to monitor replacement hormone treatment. That being said, TSH does not tell the whole story nor give insights on why thyroid dysfunction is happening.


Total T4 and Free T4 Testing:

Total T4 is the combination of the hormones that the thyroid gland makes, (T4 bound to transport proteins-inactive) and free T4 (T4 removed from its transport proteins-active). As T4 enters the liver, it's converted into T3.

Total T3 and Free T3 Tests:

T3 (or triiodothyronine) is the active form of thyroid hormone. T3 is the hormone that ultimately runs the metabolism of each cell of the body. Knowing both T4 and T3 levels helps to better understand how well your liver is converting T4 into T3. This conversion is also highly selenium dependent and can also be adversely affected by psychological stress, increased cortisol, liver issues, and anemia.

Reverse T3 Test:

In times of stress (elevated cortisol), inflammation, and hormonal imbalances (postmenopause | premenopause | males) may cause the body to conserve energy. Since the thyroid hormone acts like our internal thermostat, thyroid hormones may be suppressed in times of stress. One way this is done is by converting the thyroid hormone T4 into an inactive form of the active T3 hormone called reverse T3. This not only lowers the amount of available active T3, but it also “plugs up” the spots on the cells where T3 would normally enter, which can lead to hypothyroid type symptoms.

Thyroid Hormone Binding Globulin (TBG add-on):


As the thyroid gland makes hormones, it attaches them to transport proteins to keep them safe as they travel to the liver for conversion.

Hormonal imbalances (postmenopause | premenopause | males) can adversely affect levels of TBG, binding up thyroid hormones and creating hypothyroid type states. A typical sign that you may have a TBG elevation is that your doctor has put you on thyroid replacement hormone and it “doesn't work”.

Vitamin D Test

Vitamin D Deficiency

As much as 80% of the population in the United States is estimated to have low vitamin D levels. Emerging studies show that low vitamin D is associated with an increase cause of death from ALL causes1. Low vitamin D is also associated with autoimmune diseases and overall immune health.

Recommended add-on test: 1,25 Vitamin D (active form)

Vitamin D Deficiency Causes

In a society that has almost every vitamin D type food avaliable and abundant sunshine, many are left wondering, "Why are my vitamin D levels low"? The 7 most common causes for low vitamin D levels are:

  • Misuse/overuse of sunscreen
  • Diet high in processed foods
  • Inactivity
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Thyroid issues

Why Get Your Vitamin D Levels Checked?

This test will allow you to supplement with the correct dosage of vitamin D. Since you can overdose on vitamin D, it is recommend to be testing once a season in order to adjust supplementation and maintain optimal vitamin D levels.

Vitamin D deficiency has been shown in studies to increase the risk of:

  • Autoimmune conditions like Multiple Sclerosis and Hashimoto's
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Certain cancers

Vitamin D and Breast Cancer

Studies show a close correlation between optimal vitamin D and breast cancer. Many of these studies show that optimal vitamin D levels are associated with 50% decrease in breast cancer risk2.

Perimenopause Test

A Comprehensive Perimenopause Test You can do at Home


As women approach the end of their fertile years, hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) begin to lose communication with each other.

Certain supplementation, diet, and lifestyle changes can be made to help you gently and easily go through perimenopause. Our perimenopause test can help determine if you are in fact in perimenopause.

Perimenopause Saliva Hormone Test


Saliva tests for hormones is the most accurate and affordable way to monitor perimenopausal hormones. Standard blood tests measure the "inactive" form of hormones which is less useful when making lifestyle or hormone replacement therapy decisions.

Our goal with this test is to measure the "active" form of perimenopausal hormones in which the saliva glands produce. Since hormones spike up and down during perimenopause, it is important to take 2 seperate saliva samples. With our perimenopause test, you will take one sample then several days later, another. Significant difference in hormone levels can indicate a perimenopausal state.

Perimenopause Symptoms- 1 Major Cause- Adrenal Fatigue


Many studies show that symptoms of perimenopause is highly associated with dysfunctions of our blood sugar hormone system. One of these hormones, cortisol (released from the adrenal glands) is a critical factor when determining if going through perimenopause will be "easy" or "hard". Testing for adrenal fatigue is extremely important when assessing perimenopause and menopause.

  • Estrone 2x
  • Estradiol 2x
  • Estriol 2x
  • Progesterone 2x
  • DHEA 2x
  • Testosterone 2x

  • If you do not menstruate, the first sample can be collected on any day; The Second: 13-15 days after first collection

Postmenopause Test

Note: This panel can be used for both postmenopausal monitoring and for women who are cyclying that want a one-sample "snapshot" of their hormones.

Easy and Affordable Home Menopause Testing

The ratio of hormones play a curtail role in the well-being of women in menopause. Our menopause test makes it easy and affordable to check hormone levels which then can help you make healthy changes to diet, lifestyle, nutritional supplementation and hormone replacement therapy.

Why Saliva Hormone Testing

Saliva hormone test is an accurate and inexpensive way to test unbound "free" hormones. Free hormones are the "active" form of hormones vs. bound or "inactive" hormones which do not perform any action in the body.

Standard blood tests only test the inactive bound hormones. In saliva hormone testing, the saliva gland only release the active form of hormone, making it a better test for assessing hormone function and optimal hormone health.


Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) vs. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Women in menopause who are taking any forms of hormone replacement therapy should have their hormone levels checked regularly. Bioidentical hormones are derived mainly from soy beans and/or yams and closely resembles our own hormones. Synthetic, pharmaceutical based hormones are derived from horse urine, is ultra concentrated, and is chemically different than our own hormones.

Either forms of hormone replacement therapy can cause hormone overload. Menopause testing is crucial to insure proper hormone ratios and dosages. Since hormone overload has the same symptoms as hormone deficiency, many women end up becoming overloaded with hormones that can dramatically effect well-being.

Genova DNA Stool Test | GI-Effects

Gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) function is important for general health. This includes balancing beneficial bacteria in the gut to enhance health benefits. GI tract health is key in digestion, nutrient usage, and ridding the body of waste and pathogens.

Poor digestion and malabsorption can lead to immune dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, and various disease states. Poor GI tract function can also lead to food allergies and other toxicities. The GI-Effects Metamextrix stool test uses advanced DNA technology analyze GI tract health.

Your intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria, some beneficial, some neutral, and some that can be harmful. It is essential to know the bacterial balance of your GI tract, especially if you have long-standing health problems. Health-enhancing intestinal bacteria serve to prevent the overgrowth of potentially harmful bacteria in the gut.

Symptoms of an unhealthy GI tract may not always be present. This specific Metametrix stool test gives a detailed analysis of GI tract health. You and your healthcare practitioner can use the information to develop a plan to restore optimal function of the GI tract. Read more
