Episode - Thyroid Blood Chemistry with Dr. Amie Hornaman


In this episode Dr. Eric Osansky chats with Dr. Amie Hornaman about thyroid blood tests.  While most people with thyroid conditions rely on the recommendations of their medical doctor, others become frustrated that their doctors don’t do all of the necessary blood tests.  This is especially true for those with Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.  Many doctors will do the bare basics, while others will initially do comprehensive testing, but won’t order the appropriate follow-up blood tests.  If you have hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism and want to know what blood tests you should order, how frequently you should do them, and what the ranges should be, then this episode is meant for you.

During this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s important to test for both free T4 and free T3
  • The difference between reference ranges vs. optimal reference ranges
  • How frequently should you test for thyroid antibodies
  • Other tests you should consider beyond a thyroid panel
