Have You Been Told Your Thyroid is NORMAL?

thyroid is normalWhenever I hear people say they have been told their ‘thyroid is normal’ my first thought is…yes, but what was tested?

All too often individuals are told their thyroid is fine after only testing thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).

Sure, testing TSH is important as it’s a vital messenger hormone that’s released by your pituitary gland. But you definitely need more to accurately assess overall thyroid function. Comprehensive testing also helps with an accurate diagnosis, and is useful to track improvements in thyroid health.

What Is Included In A Full Thyroid Panel?

Very briefly, these are the five thyroid tests you should be discussing with your healthcare practitioner;

  • Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
  • Free T4 (FT4)
  • Free T3 (FT3)
  • Reverse T3 (RT3)
  • Thyroid antibodies to screen for autoimmune thyroid disorders: thyroid peroxidase Abs (TPO Ab) + antithyroglobulin Abs (ATG Ab).

Are you getting all these done? Are you ready to learn more about comprehensive testing?
