We see the big picture

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.

Background

While I have been a practicing physician since 2003, I made the change to telemedicine full time in 2020. I believe it is the future of patient care.‍After many experiences with patients who did not receive quality thyroid care due to single lab numbers, I attended a conference in 2012 that altered the way I view thyroid care. I look at the whole patient by assessing symptoms as well as reviewing labs to offer the best treatment and care for the individual. I find that supporting thyroid concerns can make a noticeable and positive change in people’s lives.‍

Background

When it comes to caring for people with hypothyroidism, Dr. Zager has found it helpful to draw from both conventional and evidence-based alternative methods of diagnosis and treatment. Hypothyroid care is certainly not a ""one-size-fits-all"" operation. Effective approaches come from an understanding of each person's narrative, with reference to lifestyle and individual goals.

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

Carolyn

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.

Juliette

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.

Can I use my HSA or FSA or insurance to pay for Paloma Health?

In most cases, you can use your HSA/FSA account to pay for your at-home thyroid blood test. Your Paloma Health test is authorized by a physician, so it should fit the guidelines for most HSA/FSA coverage.

Your Paloma Health test kit purchase can be submitted for reimbursement through HSA/FSA benefits.

As always, be sure to check with your specific HSA/FSA benefits coordinator for clarification on the specific requirements for reimbursement including usage, protocol, and qualifications.

+

Do I need to stop taking my supplements or medications before the test?

We do not recommend discontinuing any medication without contacting your physician first. If you have questions about a specific medication, please email contact@palomahealth.com and we'll gladly answer any questions

+

Are the test kits covered by my insurance company

This is an at-home health test that doesn't require an office visit. Unfortunately, most health insurance companies do not cover the cost of these at-home blood tests. However, Paloma Health's tests are typically priced lower than out-of-pocket costs associated with such visits.

As always, this will depend on your own coverage but we encourage you to check with your insurance company to see whether they will cover all or some of the cost of our at-home thyroid test.

When discussing coverage, it is important that your carrier understands specifically what the test is and what it is testing for. Be sure to mention the following key points:
- The test is taken at home via a blood sample and analyzed by our partner laboratories
- The test measures: TSH, Free T3, Free T4, Anti-TPO Antibodies
- The report measures the above markers and reports on whether they are high, low, or within the normal healthy range.

How do I know if the Paloma Health test is right for me?

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 hormones levels and making sure that they are within range is very important. The Paloma Health at

+

Are these the same laboratory tests that I would get from my doctor?

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.

+

How accurate are the results from Paloma Health?

Very! Every Paloma Health test is ordered by a doctor. A physician will also review your results before they are returned as well and your sample will be processed in a CLIA and CAP accredited lab.

+

In which states can I purchase a kit?

Paloma Health tests are currently available to residents in 46 U.S. states. We currently do not offer tests to residents of the following states: New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Rhode Island.

This is due to each state having different medical regulations and we hope to expand in the future.

+

What type of info will I get in my results?

Your Paloma Health report comes with personalized explanations around each thyroid hormone and what your levels mean, all in human speak.

+

How often should I retest?

We recommend to retest every 6months if you did not get a new prescription. If you had a recent change in dose or medication, we recommend to test after 8 weeks.

You should also retest whenever you feel that the symptoms are coming back.

+

Is it safe to complete a blood test while pregnant?

Yes, our blood tests only require a prick of the finger. Our other tests may require saliva or urine samples. Paloma Health tests are considered safe to complete while pregnant. Normal ranges change for pregnant patients, please reach out to your physician to double check normal ranges for pregnat women.
