Order Your Own TSH and Other Thyroid Blood Tests, Without A Doctor's Visit

No HMO or insurance approval, no doctor's appointment, and no medical office markup needed!

Through a relationship with MyMedLab, you can now order your own thyroid, autoimmune and hormonal lab tests. There is no need for a doctor's visit or appointment in order to get your testing done.

The testing is provided by LabCorp, a nationwide network of medical testing laboratories, and the same exact provider used by many physicians and hospitals across the U.S.

Through MyMedLab, you can get these tests at 50% to 80% less than if you paid direct -- and costs are often far less than your doctor's marked up prices, even after insurance deductibles!

When you order your blood tests through MyMedLab:

  • You are getting the same tests that, up until now, were only available to doctors
  • Local sample collection at over 2000 convenient locations nationwide, and no appointment is necessary
  • Your results are completely confidential, and never become part of your medical record unless you provide them to your insurer
  • You have access to MyMedLab's free Personal Health Record (PHR), to keep records of all your test results, and track and monitor changes in health over time.
(Note: patient-ordered testing is not available to residents of NY, NJ or RI)

I've worked with MyMedLab to put together sets of various tests, known as profiles, that can help you get a jumpstart on living well. In conjunction with a great doctor (my Thyroid Top Doctors Directory can help you find a great practitioner), these tests can be a smart, empowered part of your strategy to get proper diagnosis and treatment.

Mary Shomon's Recommended Basic Thyroid Profile

My recommended basic thyroid profile tests establish your baseline data used for comparison to future results. It includes the following tests.
  • Thyroid (TSH)
  • Free T4 (FT4)
  • Free T3 (FT3)

  • Thyroid Antibody (Anti-thyroid AB)


Order online for $220.50 or by phone for $245, 1-888-MYMEDLAB (888-696-3352)

(Note: These tests, if purchased individually from MyMedLab, would cost $315.00. Purchasing them together in this special profile, provides an additional $94.50 saving off the regular price. This group of tests from your local doctor or hospital lab would typically cost between $600 - $800.)

Mary Shomon's Recommended Thyroid Followup Profile

The initial test results establish the baseline data used for comparison to future results. It includes the following tests:

Did You Know?

One study found that as many as 40% of overweight people had evidence of a dysfunctional thyroid, a problem that could be contributing to your weight gain in the first place, and to your present difficulty losing weight. Other practitioners believe that the actual numbers are much higher!

"Nothing else has worked in the past and I was more than a little skeptical that anything would work at this point. But I have already lost about 14 pounds in less than two months! It is amazing. I feel wonderful...I almost don't feel like I'm doing anything that deprives me at all. Thank you Thank you Thank you, a million times. Thank you.
Carrie R.

I couldn't wait any longer to thank you for your help and book "The Thyroid Diet". I have been hypothyroid since 1998 and have battled my weight for years. I've weighed as much as 230 pounds. I finally decided I had to take matters in my own hands and ordered your book. I started your diet and in 3 weeks lost 15 pounds and felt and looked better than I had in months!!! SO - I just had to write and tell you that you have saved my life...THANK YOU!!!!!
Kendra G

"Exactly 9 weeks ago today I weighed in at 144 lbs. Today I weighed in at 121!!! Those twenty three pounds have been with me for almost ten years and nothing was moving them. I had tried Atkins and after some weight loss I would stall on the scale, as soon as I ate again I would gain all the weight back and then some. I loved the diet plans and modified them to my benefit. I just want to say thank you for all your effort in thyroid information. I receive your newsletters and love the updates and am thrilled with the weight loss."
Linda
