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.
