HOW DOES THE TEST WORK?

This Advanced Thyroid Screen is a simple finger prick blood test that you can carry out at home. A kit will be sent to your house with instructions on how to take your sample and a return envelope addressed to our partner lab. Results are typically available within a week, often less. Once your results have arrived we will notify you and share these with you via a secure portal.

HOW WILL THE RESULTS HELP ME?

The results of this test will give you a clear picture as to the state of your thyroid health. It will help you identify if your thyroid is contributing to your weight gain and / or health challenges. If your thyroid function is suboptimal we will always advise you to seek advice from your GP first. We can connect you with a functional medicine doctor for more holistic support if required. Nutrition plays a key role in healthy thyroid function and we can discuss with you how we could work with you to support you in managing your thyroid health.
