Where Can I Order My Own Tests?

Your doctor may not run all the thyroid tests you want – you want to make sure that TSH, Free T3 and Free T4 are done at the very least. Most patients benefit from being highly involved in their thyroid care and treatment, which is where self-testing and the ability to order your own tests can be critical tools for empowering a patient.

I have compiled the below list of places to order your own tests from. It’s legal for you to do so. Most tests require blood, but saliva is highly recommended to test cortisol (a 24 hour, 4 point saliva test should be completed for cortisol/adrenals).12063615_10209343858020577_4075257906833691094_n

This list has been compiled from thyroid patients who have told me where they order their own tests from.

Using them is solely your choice and responsibility.
