Make the Correct Diagnosis
What is a comprehensive thyroid panel? The thyroid is best tested with a blood test. The labs that we look at include: TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, Thyroid peroxidase (TPO) and Anti-thyroglobulin antibodies. Other useful tests include: vitamin/nutrient testing, 4 point salivary cortisol kit, food sensitivity/allergy testing.
