Complete instructions are enclosed, and sample collection is extremely easy and virtually painless. A single finger nick using an enclosed lancet is all it takes. Simply deposit a few drops of blood on the collection card and wait 15 minutes for it to dry, place the card in the enclosed postage paid envelope along with your completed Test Request Form, and drop in the nearest US mialbox.
After your sample is analyzed at our laboratory, you will receive an easy-to-read report by return mail that will provide you with important information you and your physician can use to determine your overall thyroid health. Most people find that their results are within normal ranges, but if a serious irregularity is discovered, early detection greatly increases your chances for successful treatment.
The TSH Test is used to evaluate thyroid function and to aid in discovery of either an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) or an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). The test is frequently conducted in advance of physician ordered T3 and T4 testing when thyroid abnormalities are discovered. TSH testing is also used at regular intervals to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for a thyroid disorder.

● Weight Gain
● Dry Skin
● Cold Intolerance

A few of the common symptoms of an Overactive Thyroid are:
● Weight Loss
● Heat Intolerance
● Muscle Weakness
