These are some of the tests that may be required to understand your iron-thyroid relationship and the relevant nutrients and inadequacies. You may not need all of them, however so please head to ‘Where to Next?’ to learn how we can support you to truly understand your pathology results, resolve the root causes of your low iron and often, so much more.

1. Iron:

Please note: many, if not all of these should be covered by Medicare in Australia with no out-of-pocket expense, so please discuss this with your GP.

2. Thyroid:

Please note: from the above, it is most likely that only TSH will be tested via Medicare in Australia. Just like you can not understand your iron studies from ferritin alone, you can not understand your thyroid function from TSH alone.
