The American Thyroid Association estimates that approximately 20 million Americans have thyroid disease, and about 60% of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition. Unfortunately, many patients with thyroid disorders may remain undiagnosed with asymptomatic or non-specific clinical presentations. Also, the recognition of autoimmunity as a leading cause of thyroid dysfunction has led to the evaluation of autoantibodies in thyroid testing.

The Evexia Diagnostics Basic Thyroid Profile provides a starting point for a clear picture of thyroid hormone production and metabolism. This profile includes TSH, free thyroxine index, T3 uptake, total and free T4, and T3, reverse T3, thyroglobulin antibody (Tg-AB), and thyroperoxidase antibody (TPO-Ab).

This test is used for assessing such conditions as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, autoimmune diseases, arrhythmia, infertility, lipid disorders, osteoporosis, fatigue, and pituitary disorders.

Thyroid antibody tests help distinguish autoimmune thyroid disorders from other thyroid dysfunction.  Thyroid antibody tests, such as thyroperoxidase antibodies and thyroglobulin antibodies, are most important in patients with other, pre-existing autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Celiac disease.
