The Thyroflex® is a medical device that is clinically proven to sensitively detect thyroid conditions. As a non-invasive test of thyroid function, it uses a spring-loaded reflex hammer and a motion sensor which fits around the hand and is connected to a computer. The speed of the brachioradialis reflex is then analyzed by computer into ranges of thyroid function. The Thyroflex was developed by Dr. Konrad Kail, ND, and Dr. Daryl Turner, Ph.D. in conjunction with Noraxon Inc.
Detection of subclinical hypothyroidism by using the Throflex test allows us to treat and avoid many health risks such as cardiovascular conditions, arthritis and inflammation, diabetes and insulin resistance, nerve damage and dysfunction, and fertility issues.
The prototype device was in a clinical trial which to date has had more than 60,000 patient interactions. Volunteers became functionally normal and thyroid symptoms resolved when their medication doses were titrated using this system. Check out the website www.thyroflex.com to see the Thyroflex® featured on national TV both on the Dr. Phil Show and on The Doctors show.
Think you may have a thyroid problem? Take our Thyroid Symptom Survey to find out if you are one of the 30% of the U.S. population that has thyroid dysfunction. Dr. Kasdorf can determine your thyroid function through this non-invasive, clinically proven test. She can then provide an appropriate plan and follow your response.
With this test, there is no blood draw, no basal temperature taking and no resting metabolic rate test.
