(Thyroid Function Test) The Thyroflex is a non-invasive thyroid test which measures your brachioradialis reflexometry (BR reflex) and resting metabolic rate, providing results in 5 minutes. The Thyroflex test identifies if your thyroid function is under or overactive or within optimal range.

What role does the thyroid have in the body?
The thyroid plays a key role in your body. Thyroid hormones regulate just about every cell in the body, including those in the central nervous system, heart, liver, kidneys, skin, bone and muscles. Among its most important functions is the control of the rate of metabolism, this will greatly affect your weight.
Currently, the medical community orders millions of dollar’s worth of thyroid tests every year, unfortunately these tests can be inaccurate and as a result people with sub clinical hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) remain untreated or under treated.
Current thyroid tests used:
Thyroid blood test: Blood testing of the thyroid hormones shows how much hormone we have, not whether they are working. You may have adequate levels of thyroid hormones but they may not be working well.
Body basal temperature: Requires taking your temperature first thing in the morning before getting out of bed. Your temperature must be taken at the same time every day to provide accurate results. The results can be ambiguous.
Thyroflex Test: the Thyroflex Test is 98.5% accurate in diagnosing a thyroid problem and is FDA certified.
