Thyroid Element Kit

Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in the lower front part of your neck. Its job is to secrete hormones that control growth/development during childhood, regulate your metabolism and body temperature, and drive the production of neurotransmitters that help you feel good and others that motivate you to accomplish your goals: serotonin, dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline.

8 Factors that Inhibit Healthy Thyroid Function:

  • Excess stress and cortisol production
  • Selenium deficiency
  • Deficient protein, excess sugar
  • Chronic illness
  • Compromised liver or kidney function
  • Cadmium, mercury, lead toxicity
  • Herbicides, pesticides
  • Oral contraceptives, excessive estrogen production

Thyroid disease or dysfunction can explain a wide variety of symptoms, yet it is notoriously under-diagnosed. The American Thyroid Association estimates that over 12% of the US population will develop thyroid disease during their lifetime, and that as many as 60% of people with thyroid disease are not aware of it.  Many elements that can affect the thyroid are present in the food we eat, air we breathe, and water we drink and are tasteless and odorless, so they are impossible to detect without testing.

This kit can be purchased in-store or online.

FOR CLINICAL LAB TESTS, WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I HAVE AN ABNORMAL OR POSITIVE TEST RESULT?

Any Lab Test Now does not diagnose or treat.  However, we work with well-known reference laboratories that physicians across the country know and trust.  If you receive an abnormal or positive test result, we highly recommend contacting your primary care physician.  For non-emergency situations such as urinary tract infections, sinus infections or STDs, you may want to contact our telemedicine partner, DialCare.  In some instances, DialCare is able to e-prescribe medication when appropriate.

AM I ABLE TO PAY FOR MY HOME COLLECTION KIT WITH MY HEALTH SAVINGS OR FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNT CARD?

Your HSA or FSA card can be used for clinical lab tests.  HSA and FSA cards cannot be used for social-based tests, such as Informational Paternity Tests.
