The classic thyroid panel ordered by most physicians consists of only three tests: Total T4, Free T4 and TSH. At Restore Health Center we believe that these three tests alone do not give adequate insight into your current level of thyroid function.

Many practitioners are simply not familiar with those parameters and will not test for them.
