This test checks the level of the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) in blood to verify a thyroid physiological alteration. INTENDED FOR The TSH screening should be performed yearly by women from 35 to 64 years-old with healthy lifestyle. WHY SHOULD I PERFORM THE TEST? The TSH level in blood gives an indication of the physiological condition of the thyroid. TSH, which is secreted by the pituitary gland, regulates and controls the activity of the thyroid gland. Therefore, a raised TSH level indicates an under active thyroid and this is the principle on which the Thyroid Test is based for the detection of the hypothyroidism condition. Checking the normality of the TSH value is a very good tool for verifying thyroid health status and eventually taking the required preventive actions. In case of cancer, early detection and prevention can be life saving. HOW DOES IT WORK? The test is based on an immunochromatographic reaction correlated to the reference laboratory test. The cut-off is calibrated at 5 µIU/mL according to the international standard. 1) The sample is a blood drop taken with the painless sterile lancet contained in the box. 2) Obtain a big drop of blood by squeezing the finger. 3) Put the drop of blood on the indicated point on the device. 4) Add the diluent, wait for 10 minutes and read the result. CONTENT 1 sealed aluminum pouch containing: 1 device for the test, 1 pipette and desiccant, 1 dropper vial containing 1 ml of diluent, 1 painless sterile lancet for blood sampling, instructions for use. 15 reviews for Home Thyroid Test Kit 5 star88%4 star11%3 star0%2 star0%1 star0%Powered by Customer Reviews Plugin 5 out of 5 Abbey G. (store manager) – April 6, 2014 Arrived very quickly (1-2 days) and the instruction are very clear. Was this review helpful to you?YesNo Sandra (verified owner) – April 6, 2016 Straight forward to use. Decisive negative result provided. Sue Scarre – November 19, 2016 Being someone who was originally told I wasn’t hypothyroid because my TSH was in the normal range, do not accept a negative result as definitive. I had to see an endocrinologist privately and from my symptoms alone (slower heartbeat, cold, insomnia, hair falling out, etc) he knew I was most definitely hypothyroid. Val Rose – January 27, 2017 I am so frustrated at the moment as I am on 25g Lethothyoxide and know that I need a higher dosage as all my symptoms have returned and I am so low, tired, constipated, put weight on when I eat like a sparrow, always cold) but my doctor is saying I am within the TSH and wont increase, but will put me on antidepressants!! OMG I am now looking to purchase the higher lever direct but its expensive 5 out of 5 L J B (store manager) – July 15, 2015 Test kit arrived quickly and everything needed was in the package. Instructions are fairly straightforward and I followed them closely to make sure that I got an accurate result. Results of the test were later confirmed after a blood test at my local GP. Would buy this kit again.

Was this review helpful to you?YesNo Anthony Cunningham (store manager) – April 14, 2016 Although hypothyroidism is more common in women, men get it, too. A TSH Test (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Test) is an important tool in the detection of thyroid disease and problems in both men and women. Callum williams – February 1, 2017 I’m 14 and it’s impossible fr me to lose weight I’m hungry alot and I get tired just after 3 o’clock in the afternoon I have anxiety issues to, should I bother with this test? 4 out of 5 ZS – June 6, 2016 Easy to use although one of the finger prick devices didn’t work (there was a second one) and that’s why only four stars. Assuming the result was accurate, this is a good alternative to NHS waiting lists and gives a result in minutes.

My doctor has asked me to have a blood test….there is no way I can have blood tests as am needle phobic. I think I could cope with this test as I am doing the ‘needle part’. Will it test for overactive as well as an under active thyroid? Thanks. Was this review helpful to you?YesNo 5 out of 5 Marilyn H.
