Iodine Blood Test
Test subject must be 18 years or older.
Monitor thyroid problems
The Forever Health Iodine Blood Test is used to monitor thyroid problems such as iodine-induced hypothyroidism, autoimmune inflammation of the thyroid gland, and hyperthyroidism associated with excessive iodine intake.
Iodine is a health-promoting trace element naturally occurring in sea vegetables and plants. Found in high levels in the thyroid, breast, liver, lung, heart, and adrenals, iodine is essential for the body and is detected in every organ and tissue. Its primary biological role is in the production of the thyroid hormones, which have powerful influences on cardiovascular health, energy, metabolism, and weight.
Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
Special Note: This test is not designed to determine optimal iodine status in an individual choosing to supplement with iodine; careful consideration of other thyroid function tests as well as clinical symptoms is essential.
NOTE: Blood tests are available only in the contiguous United States and Anchorage, AK. Not available in Maryland. Your blood test requisition options are a LabCorp requisition form or a blood draw kit. Certain restrictions apply for residents of MA, NY, NJ, RI, and PA. Customers in MA, NY, NJ, and RI will receive a blood draw kit, and an additional local blood draw fee may be incurred. PA customers must go to LabCorp for their blood draw.
