Thyroid Testing

The thyroid is one of the most important areas to look at to improve your energy and overall health. The main thyroid hormone is thyroxine (also known as T4), which is converted to the active from T3 when it leaves the thyroid.

Up to 80% of thyroid complaints are misdiagnosed or go undetected because standard GP tests are not very reliable in giving the full picture. They only consider TSH, T4 & T3 levels, which can still appear ‘normal’ when thyroid dysfunction is occurring. In order to fully understand and treat the root cause of thyroid complaints, additional markers need to be considered:

 

Thyroid antibodies: There are many reasons why the body can start producing thyroid antibodies. Once this process starts, the antibodies attack the thyroid and affect its function. This is an autoimmune process.

Reverse T3 levels: Reverse T3 mimics T3 in the body but does not perform the same function. It is caused by high cortisol levels, which can arise from adrenal stress, heavy metal exposure, chronic illness and nutrient deficiencies.

Free T3 and T4: This is the only portion of the hormone that exerts its effect at the cellular level. It is important to consider this marker and it also gives indication of sub-clinical manifestations of thyroid dysfunction.

Thyroid Vital (FDX)

The test includes a full blood chemistry panel containing all the thyroid markers plus an additional 50 markers that give vital clues into how the bodies systems and processes are functioning. These markers provide us with information on inflammation, oxidative stress, nutrient deficiencies, infection and pathogen load, toxicity and resilience. This is one of the most common and useful tests that we use in the clinic.

Cost: £335 (includes courier and 15min phone consultation)

Sample requirement: Blood serum (phlebotomy required £30)
