HOW CAN YOU DO A THYROID TEST KIT AT HOME? Thyroid Testing can be done easily.
The thyroid is a small (25 grams) butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the throat. The thyroid hormone controls energy, metabolism (weight loss) and oxygen utilization.
Hypothyroid Symptoms: fatigue, feeling cold, weight gain, depression, brain fog, hair loss, constipation, dry hair, puffiness especially in the face and eyes, slow heartbeat, dry skin, heavy menstrual periods, brittle nails.
Hyperthyroid Symptoms: anxiety, irritability, insomnia, bulging eyes, fast heartbeat, sweating easily, feeling warm or hot all the time, heat intolerance, weight loss, irregular menstrual flow, irritable bowel symptoms.
Blood Spot Testing for “FREE” or bio-available hormones requires a little blood from an easy finger prick Blood spot testing gives you the same results as serum tests, without the cost and inconvenience of conventional blood drawing. Our Thyroid Test Kit makes it convenient for you to test your thyroid hormones anywhere.

THYROID TESTING ITEMS
TSH Test: (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) TSH is not actually a thyroid hormone; it is produced by the pituitary gland and stimulates the thyroid to make T4 and T3. When TSH is high it means the thyroid is under active (hypo function) and it needs to be stimulated. When TSH is low it indicates the thyroid is working to fast (hyper function). When TSH is low, a diet to support auto immune is suggested.
Free T3 Test:(triiodo- thyronine). Only the free (unbound) portion of triiodothyronine (free T3) is believed to be responsible for the biological action of T3. Measurements of free triiodothyronine (Free T3) concentrations, correlate more reliably with your clinical status than total triiodothyronine (T3) levels. Low levels indicate a poor conversion rate in the liver of FT4 to FT3.
Free T4 Test:( L-Thyroxine) T4 should be the most abundant of the thyroid hormones and works with T3 to regulate metabolism. T4’s main purpose is to convert to the active hormone T3 in the liver.
Hashimotos: When Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPO) are elevated this can indicate Hashimotos Thyroiditis. This can easily be supported with a gluten free diet. Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune thyroid disease caused by inflammation of the thyroid gland. The immune system is actually attacking and trying to destroy the thyroid gland.
We believe that in order to identify the overall nutritional needs of the thyroid gland that all of the above indicators needs to be checked. Many nutrient deficiencies and some food intolerance can cause thyroid symptoms.
Along with your Thyroid Test Kit results, you will receive a personal protocol from our practitioner to support optimal thyroid function.
