The thyroid is a key organ with respects to metabolism and health. Millions of people suffer from low thyroid function (hypothyroid) which leads to fatigue, weight issues, hair loss, increase risk for cardiovascular illness, poor immunity and a host of other problems. High thyroid function can also be damaging as well. Unfortunately, most thyroid tests are limited in their scope of assessment with many people only receiving one test called the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). The problem is TSH is just one component of thyroid function and other markers should be done as well. The Essential Thyroid Profile done through a blood spot (finger prick) collection is comprehensive and includes not only the TSH, but also the physiological active forms of thyroid hormone called Free T4 and Free T3. This profile also includes TPO which is a marker that defines autoimmune thyroid problems which is a common cause of low thyroid function.
