Frequently Asked Questions

I have always been told my thyroid is fine. How are you different?

The lab testing and evaluation you received may have been limited to only 1 or 2 tests such as a TSH. TSH only measures the signal that is sent from the brain to the thyroid gland it does not measure how the thyroid is actually functioning and how much thyroid hormone your thyroid produces. We provide a comprehensive evaluation of the thyroid function including antibodies that may be working against your thyroid gland.
