About this test
This comprehensive profile includes tests for TSH, thyroid hormones (T4, FT4, FT3) and thyroid antibodies (thyroglobulin antibodies and thyroid peroxidase antibodies) for a thorough investigation into your thyroid status and autoimmune disorders which could be causing your symptoms.
It also includes tests for iron storage (ferritin) which can be low in individuals with thyroid disease, key nutrients folate and vitamin B12, as well as inflammation marker high-sensitivity C-Reactive protein. Vitamin D, important for immune function, is also included in this profile as is reverse T3 (rT3) - an inactive thyroid hormone which blocks the action of T3 in your cells.
Some practitioners believe that raised rT3 may explain why people suffer from symptoms of hypothyroidism when their active thyroid hormones are within the normal ranges.
