Thyroid Profile Comprehensive
Thy thyroid profile test is a comprehensive profile of the thyroid hormones and the blood factors affecting the thyroid gland production. These include the Antibodies that can damage the thyroid, as well as Reverse T3 and the ratios of T3 to T4 relative to TSH.
This gives us a comprehensive and important view into the thyroid and how it is affecting health. Generally you will only find out your TSH and Free T4 at the GP, but if you have ongoing thyroid issues you can choose to get this comprehensive test to help rule out other issue that may be affecting your thyroid and causing symptoms.
We therefore recommend this if health problems aren’t responding to the usual treatments so that we can find out more about what is happening inside the body and inside the cells.
Please discuss having this test first with your practitioner by doing a cost/benefit ratio. What we do know is that there is nothing quite like testing to truly reveal what is going on inside the body, and to add motivation to your health journey. Testing can direct a treatment plan, alert you to red flags, or they rule out anomalies. However tests do cost money so we generally only recommend them when indicated and after discussion with you, about the pros and cons of each test.
Test take between 3 to 4 weeks to get returned. Tests are taken at home and kits come with a full set of instructions.
Please note this test needs to be done in conjunction with a qualified practitioner and results are returned to a practitioner to be interpreted. We stock these on our website for information and pricing only. If you have a practitioner and would like to order a test please send us the name and practice of your practitioner so we can fill in the form for them before you receive your test. Please also note we do not keep test kits in stock, any test ordered on your behalf will need to be ordered in and then sent. If you would like to order a test please book a 15 minute consultation with one of our practitioners so we can screen you for the test and book a follow up for your results.
