Thyroid symptoms are often misunderstood or
ignored. If you’re feeling tired and run down
It might be time to consider a thyroid test
The good news is, there's now an easy and convenient way to check your thyroid (TSH) level from home with our at-home fingerprick blood test.
What will the thyroid (TSH) test show?
A thyroid blood test will show how much thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) you have circulating in your blood. This can signal changes or problems with your thyroid gland.
This test is most commonly used to diagnose an under-active thyroid (hypothyroidism). It can also be used to check the correct dose of medication being given to treat an under-active thyroid e.g. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.
An under-active thyroid causes your body to use energy more slowly than it should. This can cause fatigue, weakness, weight gain, slow heart rate, depression or related symptoms.
It's easy to put these symptoms down to simply “getting older”. However if you're experiencing any of these symptoms, we recommend taking a simple blood test.
If you record a TSH level outside the expected range (provided with your test results), you’ll be advised to visit your doctor for further review.

Watch the video below to see how it works:
"My biggest fear is having the intravenous blood tests so I just avoided getting tested. But for me a little bit of blood out the end of my finger is fine rather than having a needle jabbed in my veins."
"This lets older, frailer people get access to simple tests where they don't have to go along and confront with a full blood test."
"This is a prime example of a great health innovation both lowering the costs and making diagnosis more accessible."
Find out if your Thyroid (TSH) level is within the healthy range by ordering your at-home blood test today.
If your results are outside the healthy range, this will be clearly marked on your test results and you’ll be advised to see your doctor.
