Thyroid Blood Testing

It is important to do a full panel of Thyroid blood testing to understand the levels of thyroid hormone that is available for use in the body.  While there is controversy over what the actual preferred reference ranges are (especially for TSH) it is still paramount to have base lines.

Thyroid blood panel may be run by your Doctor, however Medicare do restrict test that they will allow, which may be reason why your Doctor will just run a TSH test.

 

The most appropriate Thyroid Tests are are:

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH),  Thyroxine (T4), TriiodothyronineT3, Reverse T3, Thyroid Perioxidase Antibody (TPO),  Anti-Thyroglobulin Antibody (ATG Ab) and TSH Receptor Antibodies.

 

Nutrient Specific Blood Tests

Basic nutrient status tests are also very useful: Vitamin D, B12, Folate & Ferritin, Selenium, Zinc and Copper.
