Iodine, Serum/Plasma Trace Metal$390.00
An iodine blood test may be used to evaluate thyroid function, diagnose iodine deficiency, monitor iodine supplementation, and monitor exposure to iodine-containing substances. If you have symptoms of thyroid problems or iodine deficiency, or if you are being treated with iodine-containing substances, your healthcare provider may recommend an iodine blood test as part of your care.
A serum pre-albumin test is a blood test that measures the level of pre-albumin, also known as transthyretin, in your blood. Pre-albumin is a protein that is primarily produced by the liver and is used as a marker of nutritional status.
It’s important to note that the T3 Free test is just one tool that doctors use to diagnose and manage thyroid disease. Other tests, such as TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) and T4 (thyroxine) may also be ordered, and your doctor will consider your symptoms and medical history in addition to test results when making a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Similar to T3 Free, the T3 Total test is a blood test that measures the total amount of T3 hormone in your bloodstream, both bound and unbound.
A T4 Free test is a blood test that measures the amount of free (unbound) thyroxine (T4) hormone in your bloodstream. T4 is an important hormone produced by the thyroid gland that helps regulate metabolism in the body.
A T4 Total test is a blood test that measures the total amount of thyroxine (T4) hormone in your bloodstream, both bound and unbound.
A Thyroglobulin, Quantitative test measures the level of thyroglobulin in your blood.
Thyroid Panel (Free T3, Free T4, TSH)$99.00
A Thyroid Panel is commonly ordered by doctors to evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and autoimmune thyroid diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Graves’ disease. Symptoms of thyroid disorders can include fatigue, weight changes, hair loss, sensitivity to cold or heat, and changes in heart rate.
Thyroid Panel Comprehensive (FT3, FT4, TSH, TGA Abs, TPO Abs, RT3)$327.00
A Thyroid Panel Comprehensive is commonly ordered by doctors to evaluate thyroid function, diagnose thyroid disorders such as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, and monitor the effectiveness of thyroid hormone replacement therapy. In addition to the markers included in the basic Thyroid Panel (Free T3, Free T4, and TSH), the Thyroid Panel Comprehensive also includes measures of thyroid antibodies and RT3, which can provide additional information about thyroid function and autoimmune thyroid diseases.
Thyroid Peroxidase Abs$60.00
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO Abs) are antibodies produced by the immune system that can attack the thyroid gland, leading to autoimmune thyroid diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Graves’ disease.
Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin (TSI)$490.50
Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin (TSI) is a type of antibody that can be found in the blood of individuals with Graves’ disease, an autoimmune disorder that causes hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland).
Thyroxine Binding Globulin (TBG) Test$255.00
Thyroxine Binding Globulin (TBG) is a protein produced in the liver that binds to thyroid hormones T3 and T4, which circulate in the bloodstream.
TBG levels can affect the total levels of T3 and T4 in the blood, as the majority of these hormones are bound to TBG. However, TBG levels do not affect the levels of free T3 and T4, which are the active forms of thyroid hormones that are available for use by the body’s cells.
TSH, or thyroid-stimulating hormone, is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain that helps regulate the function of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland produces hormones that play a vital role in regulating metabolism, growth, and development in the body.
To diagnose thyroid disorders: An abnormal TSH level may indicate an underactive or overactive thyroid gland, which can cause a range of symptoms and health problems.
