If you are SUFFERING from the symptoms of hypothyroidism then you should be aware that there are SEVERAL lab tests that your doctor may not be ordering.

In addition, even if they DO get ordered, they may not be looking at them correctly!

This video will help you understand the common thyroid lab patterns that MOST doctors miss (unless you have a really good one).

Once you figure out the lab pattern that you have you can help identify which treatments would be ideal for your condition.

Pull out your lab tests and figure out where YOU fit below.

5 Thyroid lab patterns that Doctors miss:

#1. EARLY hypothyroidism.

TSH: high (greater than 2.5)*
T4: low to normal
T3: low to normal
rT3: normal
Ab: normal

#2. Conversion issues.

If you are feeling poorly or symptomatic then these patterns may help explain your hypothyroid symptoms.
