The Missing Piece To Thyroid Health

As a naturopathic doctor focusing on comprehensive health, I understand the crucial role the thyroid plays in your overall well-being.


Thyroid issues can manifest in various ways, affecting energy levels, weight, mood, and more. That's why, when assessing thyroid health, I go beyond the standard TSH test to include a suite of in-depth labs. Here's what we look into:


    TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)

    Though commonly tested, it's just the beginning. TSH levels can indicate if the thyroid is under active or overactive but don't tell the whole story.


    Free T4 and Free T3

    These tests measure the actual levels of thyroid hormones circulating in the blood, providing insight into how well your thyroid is functioning.


    Reverse T3

    This often overlooked test can help understand how your body is converting T4 to the more active T3, and if stress or illness is impacting your thyroid function.


    Thyroid Antibodies (TPOAb and TGAb)

    These tests check for autoimmune thyroid conditions like Hashimoto's thyroiditis or Graves' disease, which can significantly affect thyroid health.


    Nutrient Levels

    Selenium, zinc, and iron are crucial for thyroid function. Testing for deficiencies in these can be key in addressing thyroid health comprehensively.


    Adrenal Function Tests

    Since adrenal health closely interacts with thyroid function, assessing cortisol levels can provide insights into the broader endocrine balance.



Check Your Thyroid Health

Understanding your thyroid health requires this nuanced approach. Each result gives us a piece of the puzzle, allowing for a tailored treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.


If you're experiencing symptoms that might be related to thyroid health, let's explore these together. Your journey to wellness is just as unique as you are, and comprehensive testing is a step towards finding the right balance.
