Base Level Testing Through Thyroid Premium Bronze
TSH, FT4 and FT3 are usually available for free on the NHS – although NHS thyroid tests are usually limited to definitely TSH, usually FT4, and rarely FT3. Test frequency may also be restricted. If you are already on thyroid medication it may be useful to know your FT3 levels to monitor dosing. Thyroid Premium Bronze
Advanced Level Testing Through Thyroid Premium Silver and Gold
These Advanced Level Thyroid Profiles can be ordered as finger-prick tests or as vacutainer tests. The Thyroid Premium Silver introduces the testing of thyroid antibodies, which may be present before the standard parameters start going out of range. Patients with raised thyroid antibodies will often have symptoms of thyroid disease. The Thyroid Premium Gold also includes 3 Vitamins, Ferritin and C Reactive Protein and is therefore our most popular finger-prick thyroid test.
Advanced Level Testing Through Thyroid Premium Platinum
Available as a vacutainer test only due to the volume of blood required, this excellent thyroid testing profiles aim to get to the bottom of any thyroid investigation in in one blood draw due to the number of blood tests conducted on the one sample. The Reverse T3 is sent to America for analysis however so this profile has a turnaround time of 30 Working Days. Thyroid Premium Platinum
Thyroid UK receives a donation for every test purchased from these testing companies which supports us in our vital work to help people with thyroid disease and related disorders.
Before ordering private thyroid tests in the UK, read about getting a diagnosis and thyroid function tests to see which might be relevant for you. If you can’t get the tests done by your clinician, then consider ordering from our partner private testing companies.
Be aware that biotin can affect FT4 levels if you take more than 20mg a day. You should stop taking biotin at least two days before taking the test. Click here for more information
