Taking Medical Tests at Home
(Saliva and Other)
To assist you in securing high-quality home testing at the lowest possible cost, we have made arrangements with several labs using innovative saliva and blood spot testing, which is often better than standard blood tests for these hormones.

Labs We Recommend
All of these labs are
excellent and provide similar evaluations. We have personally used
each of them for our patients with great success for years.
* There are differences that we feel you should know about prior
to making your decision.
For that reason, we have posted some information about each lab
on our website, with a link to their site, which we recommend you
also review. Please take time to review all of these laboratory
writeups, so you can be an informed consumer as you move ahead
on the road to wellness.
Others either use blood spot testing for thyroid (ZRT because they consider it more precise) and ZRT is also available through The Canary Club at a discount. BioHealth and Great Smokies Labs use the older blood draw method.
For these reasons, we suggest that consumers review the websites
of each individual lab before making your best possible decision.
