Does anyone have any favorite thyroid links so that we can make this topic into a reference on thyroid testing and disease?
For what it's worth. In people they will run the full panel as well to disseminate the extent of the disease. It could be that the thyroid isn't functioning at all, could be lack of iodine in the diet (which is necessary for the thyroid hormones to function properly), could also be a tumor of the gland. Treatment will depend on the reason for the lack of thyroid hormone circulating in the body.Originally Posted By: AmaruqLazer's appointment was today and the vet actually DID recommend the FULL panel and sent it to MI State.
