Borderline Subnormal Thyroid Output
Many people with borderline or subnormal thyroid output can enhance their health with some nutrient support for the thyroid.
In this case, all thyroid tests may prove normal, but the individual suffers from a fully developed fatigue and anxiety state, as well as symptoms such as: muscle cramps particularly at night, persistent low back pain, excessive blood uric acid and joint stiffness.
Further Testing for Thyroid Problems
We routinely recommend an Iodine Patch thyroid test as well as the Barnes Basal Temperature thyroid test which can be done at home. This, along with your case history will indicate whether there is an underlying thyroid problem. Further testing may then be recommended.
If you have had routine medical thyroid tests we may still recommend that you have further testing. This may include testing for Reverse T3, Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies, Anti-thyroglobulin antibodies, thyroid-stimulating antibodies and Iodine levels. These tests are often not performed by medical doctors.
