Comprehensive Thyroid Profile
Thyroid function can be affected by many factors, including nutritional deficiencies and environmental exposure to certain elements. This profile is designed to help evaluate elemental exposure and thyroid hormone synthesis.
Comprehensive Thyroid Profile allows doctors to see if an individual has too little, or too much, iodine and selenium, and/or exposure to the iodine/selenium antagonists bromine, arsenic, and mercury; full assessment of thyroid health, including screening for hypo or hyperthyroidism, determines Free T4 and Free T3 levels, testing for autoimmune thyroid disease, and monitoring thyroid replacement dosages.
Consider for: Patients with thyroid dysfunction coupled with concerns about toxic element exposure and iodine/selenium deficiency’s impact on T4 to T3 conversion.
Comprehensive Thyroid Profile includes:
Dried Urine: Iodine, Selenium, Bromine, Lithium, Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury
Blood Spot: T4, Tgbn, TSH, fT3, fT4, TPOab
