It is estimated that 20 million Americans have thyroid disease, and 60% of those who have it, may not be aware. Your thyroid is responsible for a number of functions in the body, including regulating your metabolism, producing hormones, and controlling your heart rate and muscle function.
Thyroid dysfunction falls between two main categories: underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).

Our tests use an accurate and reliable form of microsampling called Dried Blood Spot Testing.
This form of testing has been used since the 1960s in Neonatal care and for testing in remote locations. You may be familiar with the heel prick performed on newborns during their initial health assessment– this is Dried Blood Spot Testing. We use this same technology and have expanded it to accurately assess a wider range of diagnostic biomarkers to be able to provide reliable health assessment that is more convenient, accessible, and affordable.
Our state-of-the-art lab is CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited. We pride ourselves on our use of validated and reliable testing methods as well as our stringent quality control measures.
