Th1 and Th2 Cytokine Blood Test Panel | Basic

For those with a confirmed autoimmune condition, the Th1 Th2 test is possibly the most important test. The test points out imbalances in the immune system by looking at cytokines, proteins that the immune system relies on to communicate.

Bad communication results in complications for those with autoimmune conditions. The information this test provides helps your doctor develop a strong and effective treatment plan for you, especially when seeking alternative medicine support.

The Th1 Th2 Test is also highly recommended by Dr. Datis Kharrazian in his book Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms When My Lab Tests Are Normal? In the book, Dr. Kharrazian shows how one can use lab tests to understand the true cause of hypothyroidism.

How Can the Th1 Th2 Help Me?

The immune system works like a seesaw. On one side you have Th1 cytokines that initiate the first line of defense. On the other side, you have Th2 cytokines which help produce antibodies to protect you from future invasions. However, when one side goes up, the other side goes down. This can contribute to a weak immune system and potentially promote autoimmune issues.

Running this test will help to understand where the imbalance is. Because certain botanicals used in natural medicine can boost Th1 cytokines and Th2 cytokines, this test can help you and your doctor develop an effective plan to help balance a weak immune system and turn the volume down on autoimmune attacks.

For those with autoimmune concerns, it is suggested to run the CD4 CD8 ratio test along with this Th1/Th2 test.

Reviewer: Teresa from VIrginia, United States  
This lab allowed me to have more information about my autoimmune disorder (Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis). Since I was not familiar with this particular test and it’s reference ranges, I also ordered the One-On-One Results Review. Dr Hurst’s phone consultation was very helpful. I’m happy that I now have more information about my condition.  Thanks True Health Labs for helping me to have more control over my health.
