Complete Thyroid Test Panel

Many healthcare practitioners miss seeing the full thyroid picture due to the lack of comprehensive testing.

We have created this comprehensive thyroid panel to give deeper insights to the complexity of thyroid dysfunction. Since your thyroid situation is personal to you, this information can help you and your practitioner develop a tailored treatment plan that works.

What's Being Tested:

  • TSH
  • Total T4
  • Total T3
  • Free T4
  • Free T3
  • Reverse T3 (rT3)
  • T3U
  • Free T4 Index
  • TPO and Anti-TG Antibodies (Hashimoto's Screen)


Fasting:
No

Specimen: Blood (Draw Location | How It Works | FAQs)

Turnaround Time: 4 Business Days

Our thyroid binding globulin test will help determine the cause of abnormal T4 levels. Thyroid binding globulin does bind T3 in the blood but mainly T4. If large amounts of thyroid binding globulin are present, the body will not have enough free, or usable, T4 to function properly.

Thyroid Binding Globulin is Increased by:

  1. estrogens, including birth control pill, premarin and environmental estrogens
  2. tamoxifen
  3. pregnancy
  4. perphenazine
  5. liver disease, including hepatitis
  6. genetic factors


Thyroid Binding Globulin is Decreased by:

  1. chronic liver disease
  2. nephrosis (kidney)
  3. glucocorticoids
  4. androgens/anabolic steroids (e.g. cortisone shots)
  5. acromegaly (enlarged tissue due to increased growth hormone)

What's Being Tested:

  • Thyroid Binding Globulin (TBG)

Fasting: No

Specimen: Blood(Draw Location | How It Works | FAQs)


The thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin is used to test for an autoimmune condtion called Graves' Disease. Graves' Disease occors when the body's immune system stimulates the overproduction of thyroid hormone. This creates a state known as autoimmune hyperthyroidism. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism include weight loss, rapid heart beat, and insomnia.

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.


What's Being Tested:

  • Vitamin D (25 HydroxyvitaminD- dieatary indicator; inactive form)
  • Calcium Serum



Fasting Required: No

Hemoglobin A1C Test

Monitor blood sugar with HbA1C

The hemoglobin A1C test (also known as HbA1C) is used to show the long-term changes in blood sugar. When blood sugar is elevated over a long period of time, a sugary coating called glycosylated hemoglobin develops over the surface of the red blood cell. As more of the oxygen carrying hemoglobin is coated, it can decrease the cell's ability to transport oxygen.

Hemoglobin A1C can be used to monitor blood sugar therapy. As daily blood sugar improves and stabilizes, Hemoglobin A1C levels should improve also.

How Often Should My Hemoglogin A1C Levels Be Tested?

The lifespan of a red blood cells is approximately 120 days, therefore, it has been recommended to retest Hemoglobin A1C every 2-3 months.



What's being tested:

  • Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C)

Fasting: No
