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.

      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

    • Sue Scarre

      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.

      Straight forward to use. Decisive negative result provided.

    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.
