2. Basal Body Temperature
- The basal body temperature (BBT) reflects the
body’s basal metabolism, which refers to the amount of energy
your body burns at rest.

- The function of the thyroid can be observed by

reduced adrenal function, a diet low in essential fatty acids,
protein malnutrition and thiamine deficiency. Therefore, you should
not equivocally associate a depressed temperature with a pure
3. Iodine skin test
- The iodine
skin test is a functional assessment for iodine status in the
- By painting
the skin with a 2% solution of iodine we can see how quickly the
body absorbs the available iodine.
- The quicker
the iodine fades, the greater the deficiency can be assumed to
The above tests are part of our in-office Lab Testing
