TRH challenge test

Does anyone know where I can get the TRH challenge test done?

I am beginning to think my 15 year old son may have a thyroid problem but we thought he had Asperger. Having read an article written by Dr. Raphael Kellman, who says a lot of children with a diagnosis of ASD have a thyroid problem, I would like to get my son tested. This doctor recommended the TRH challenge test as the normal TSH test often comes back within range even when there is a problem.

I have added the link to the article in case anyone is interested in reading it

Thanks for posting Mouse. I have a nephew with Aspergers and as I and my son have thyroid troubles, I think this is a real possibility.
