Comprehensive Thyroid Health
Your thyroid gland sits in the lower portion of your neck and acts as the metabolic throttle for every cell in your body. When your thyroid doesn’t function efficiently, it can affect every cell in your body. An estimated 27 million Americans have thyroid disease, and about 13 million of them are undiagnosed. Since symptoms can often be vague such as fatigue, depression, and weight gain, many people are not tested for thyroid dysfunction.
The most common and officially recognized test to evaluate your thyroid is based on a measure called TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), which is the standard in baseline thyroid testing, but it can’t always pick up when a person’s thyroid is malfunctioning. The Comprehensive Thyroid analysis includes several additional biomarkers to give a more clear picture of how the thyroid is functioning.
