While many labs only look at Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) to assess thyroid health, we believe it is critical to also measure Free Triiodothyronine (fT3), Free Thyroxine (fT4) and TPO antibodies.
Our at-home test kits let you test wherever you are, including the comfort of your couch.

After years of asking for a full thyroid test from my doctor and getting denied, I came across Paloma. The clear insight has made me switch doctors. My results confirmed what I was feeling! Very easy to use
I work at a family practice drs office and have very little time to go to my own doctor. This was a great way to monitor my Thyroid level without taking off time from work to see my provider and get blood work ordered.
Awesome customer service as well as a great test! I've had hypothyroidism since I was 12 and have never had a full test like this done before. The information was easy to follow!
Paloma's Thyroid test was more comprehensive than the TSH only test my pcp would order when I had all the symptoms and family history of hypothyroidism.

- The report measures the above markers and reports on whether they are high, low, or within the normal healthy range.
The Paloma Health at-home kit is for both patients who have been previously diagnosed with hypothyroidism but also for people who think they might have hypothyroidism.In both cases knowing your hormone levels and making sure that they are within range is very important.
Yes. We worked with top thyroid doctors to select a panel of the most comprehensive set of biomarkers that can help patients understand their thyroid function. For each hormone you test, we’ll provide plenty of context on what the hormone is and why it’s important. The thyroid gland is complex and hormones are one (important!) piece of the puzzle.
