Our July Special $87 (regular price $175) is an in-depth look at your overall health through your thyroid hormone health. Measuring levels of TSH, T3, T4, TPO, RT3, and Antithyroglobulin can get to the bottom of health concerns such as inability to get a good nights sleep, insomnia, weight gain, fatigue, low energy, and more.
Thyroid Specific Hormone-A TSH test is done to find out if your thyroid gland is working the way it should. This test will tell us if your thyroid is overactive, hyperthyroidism, or underactive, hypothyroidism (often linked to fatigue, depression).
T3-Triiodothyronine is a hormone that impacts your body’s metabolism. T3 testing is used to ensure that you are not living with hyperthyroidism, a condition in which your body produces too much of the thyroid hormone.
T4-Free thyroxine is a hormone which regulates body weight, body temperature, muscle strength, and mood.
TPO-Thyroid peroxidase; this test measures the levels of thyroid antibodies in your blood and ensures that your thyroid gland is properly functioning.
RT3-Reverse triiodothyronine aka Reverse T3 is a biologically inactive metabolite. Triiodothyronine is one of the two major hormones produced by your thyroid. Stress can also cause these levels to rise.
Antithyroglobulin-is essential to the thyroid gland and the production of thyroid hormones. This test checks to ensure that your immune system is not causing damage to your thyroid gland.
