Thyroid  and Adrenal Dysfunction

Clinical diagnosis and laboratory testing are essential for detecting thyroid dysfunction, determining the cause, predicting future thyroid disease risk, and formulating appropriate treatment and management. At WIFM, we gather all relevant thyroid labs, including TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, and Antibody level   Adrenal stress levels have a significant influence on thyroid hormone production; especially reverse T . Therefore, we must also assess your adrenals and the hypothalamus – Pituitary – Adrenal Axis (HPA) for proper function. All test results are interpreted relative to patient-specific factors. In other words, We treat the patient, not the lab tests.
