Point-Of-Care TSH Screening
There are new patients in your waiting room with the symptoms of hypothyroidism. You can identify them today – at the first visit – before proceeding with expensive lab testing.
FDA regulated and CE marked ThyroTest screens at a cutoff of 5mIU/L with high sensitivity, specificity and accuracy.
ThyroTest gives a word value, not a number. Numbers come from the lab and only 10% of those with symptoms will need a lab value for treatment. You can find out who they are right away and begin to treat 90% on the first visit.
If you find it hard to believe that a screen for TSH can identify the 10%, review the charts of your 20 latest patients who were sent to the lab.
…this study indicates that the ThyroTest rapid testing POC device for TSH is significantly more accurate than the ThyroChek device for the assessment of primary hypothyroidism. Dr. Kenneth Blick et al, Oklahoma University (OU) Health Sciences Center and OU Medical Center
