Predictability of Brachioradialis Reflexometry
Two targets of “normality” were developed; RMR change 350 kcals. and Fire –Prefire intervals & 66 msecs. People that achieved the RMR (gold standard) target had a mean RMR measured at 2040.7 kcals. Therefore the RMR norm for euthyroid individuals was considered to be 2000 kcals.
There were 179 people in the subpopulation of patients on no medication. There were 117 people identified as positive (hypothyroid) by RMR criteria and 123 people identified as positive by Reflex criteria. There were 58 people identified as negative (euthyroid) by RMR criteria and 57 people identified as negative by Reflex criteria.
