Complete evaluation of thyroid hormones includes TSH, free & total T4, free & total T3, TPO Ab, TBG Ab, Reverse T3, T3 uptake, anti-thyroglobulin Ab.  By evaluating all of these levels, we can evaluate exactly where/why thyroid dysfunction might be occurring.

These thyroid hormones can have an impact on all of the following:

  • Bone metabolism
  • GI function
  • body composition
  • insulin and glucose metabolism
  • lipid metabolism and cholesterol
  • neurotransmitters
  • estrogen metabolism
  • cortisol metabolism
  • liver detoxification
  • the presence of HCl in the digestive system
  • thermoregulation
  • protein metabolism
  • anemia
  • progesterone
  • homocysteine
  • and methylation.
