Thyroid health Test
Our thyroid health check is a blood test measuring T3, T4 and TSH levels thereby providing a comprehensive insight into your thyroid health. The sample can be collected at home using our finger-prick blood test kit and offers an affordable alternative to in-clinic private thyroid tests. Results will be reviewed by our team of healthcare professionals and available on your personal online dashboard within days.
It is thought that 1 in 20 people in the UK will experience a thyroid disorder in their lifetime, yet many people with such disorders don’t even know they have them. Typical symptoms of an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) or an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) can include weight gain or loss, tiredness, muscle weakness and low moods.
However, these symptoms could be caused by any number of other things too, so the best way to identify any potential problem is with a thyroid function blood test. Our home thyroid blood test kit will measure the three main markers recommended by the British Thyroid Foundation to identify problems:
- Thyroxine (T4)
- Thiiodothyronine (T3)
- Thyroid Stimulating hormone
It is advisable not to check thryoid levels during times of illness as thyroid function blood tests may not be accurate during such time.
