Thyroid tests & labs - What your results mean? with Dr. Amie Hornaman

Episode 26: Thyroid tests & labs - What your results mean? with Dr. Amie Hornaman

Suspecting thyroid problems? 

Taking a thyroid test is the first thing that needs to be done. 

But with a whole lot of confusion about what thyroid test to take and what the results mean, it’s important to understand the basics of thyroid testing. 

While TSH is the common test for diagnosing hypothyroidism, there are cases when this result will fail to reflect many underlying thyroid problems. 

In this episode, Dr. Amie Hornaman discusses why it’s important to go beyond the TSH test and take a more comprehensive look at your thyroid health. We talk about tests like Total T3 and Reverse T3 which can help get an accurate picture of your thyroid status. 

We also cover what “normal” labs look like versus “optimal” labs and what factors can contribute to raised Reverse T3 levels. 

Make sure to tune in for answers to all your questions about thyroid testing and how it can help diagnose underlying health issues. 

We hope that this episode helps shed light on the importance of getting the right tests done and provides you with the knowledge needed to take control of your thyroid health.
