About the test, I agree its not a no questions asked way to determine thyroid output by no means. For this, blood work would be more useful. Rather, it is simply a tool (the most logical assessment) for measuring thyroid function--that is, determining the ability of thyroxin to enter the cells and influence metabolism.
In fact The late Broda Barnes, MD., a pioneer in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disorders, developed this test and successfully diagnosed and treated many patients based on its results.
