Thyroid & Thyroflex Test Perth

Thyroflex Test

The Thyroflex test is a non-invasive thyroid test which measures brachioradialis reflexometry (reflex speed) and resting metabolic rate.

The Thyroflex test identifies if your thyroid function is under or overactive or within optimal range.

If you are already taking thyroid medication, the Thyroflex helps to ensure you are on the appropriate thyroid hormone replacement dosage with 98.5% accuracy.

Slow reflexes

The connection was made late in the 19th century when doctors studying patients with Hypothyroidism observed that clinically hypothyroid individuals have very slow or absent tendon reflexes.

The speed at which this reflex reaction occurs is an indicator of metabolic function. The lower the speed of conduction, the lower the metabolic function.

Current Thyroid Tests Used:

  • Thyroid blood test: blood testing of the thyroid shows how much hormone we have, not whether they are working. You may have good levels of thyroid hormone but they may not be working well.
  •  Basal body temperature: requires taking your temperature first thing in the morning before getting out of bed. 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 thyroid problems and FDA certified

There are several conditions that can arise when the thyroid becomes dysfunctional:

  • Hypothyroidism: This is the most common thyroid condition, and refers to an underactiveor sluggish thyroid. As this slows down your metabolism, hypothyroidism results in symptoms such as fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, depression, intolerance to the cold, dry skin and constipation.
  •  Hyperthyroidism: On the flipside, the thyroid can also become overactive, speeding up the metabolism. This displays symptoms like a rapid heart rate, excessive sweating, weight loss, fatigue and agitation.
  • Autoimmune Thyroid Disease: Autoimmunity refers to the body’s immune system attacking itself. In the thyroid, this manifests as either Hashimoto’s (creating an underactive thyroid), or Graves’ disease (creating an overactive thyroid).
  •  Goitre: A goitre is the enlargement or swelling of the thyroid gland. It can occur with both an under- and overactive thyroid, as well as an iodine deficiency
