ZRT Comprehensive Iodine and Thyroid Profile is designed to evaluate not only the availability of iodine, but also its capacity to be utilized for thyroid hormone synthesis. The thyroid glands capacity to utilize iodine for thyroid hormone synthesis is determined by measuring thyroglobulin, TSH, total T4, free T4, free T3, and TPO antibodies in finger-prick whole blood dried on filter paper.
Blood Spot: T4, Tgbn, TSH, fT3, fT4,TPOab Dried Urine: I, Br, Se, As, Hg, Cd, Crtn
- Determine iodine deficiency in order to balance and resolve thyroid concerns
- While measurement of urinary iodine levels may provide useful information on one's iodine nutritional status, sufficient levels does not always guarantee that adequate amounts of thyroid hormones will be synthesized by the thyroid gland.
- ZRT has combined the advanced technology of measuring iodine in dried urine (DU), with that of thyroid hormone measurements in finger prick dried blood spots (DBS) to create the Comprehensive Thyroid Panel.
