The symptoms of hypothyroidism include feeling tired and lethargic, weight gain, dry skin and brittle hair, becoming forgetful and sometimes depressed, feeling cold and enduring constipation as well as menstrual irregularities in women. 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.

    • 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.

  6. Question

    I have been diagonised with Tachycardia with no other symptoms of an overactive thyroid. 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.

  11. 5 out of 5 Prima Home Test Thyroid Test Kit

    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.

  13. 4 out of 5 Easy to use

    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.

    • 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.
