Advanced Thyroid Function Blood Test
Is it for you?
By checking your thyroid hormones, thyroid antibodies and important vitamins and minerals, you can investigate whether your symptoms are caused by an overactive or underactive thyroid, an autoimmune condition or something else, like low levels of vitamins and minerals. If you have been diagnosed with a thyroid disorder, this test can also help you to make informed choices to optimise your nutrition and support your thyroid health.

From the expert
Our Advanced Thyroid Function Blood Test contains everything you need to give you a clear picture of your thyroid health. This profile includes tests for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroid hormones (FT4 and FT3) and thyroid antibodies (thyroglobulin antibodies and thyroid peroxidase antibodies) for a thorough investigation of thyroid function and autoimmune disorders which could be causing your symptoms. Importantly, it also tests for free triiodothyronine (FT3) and the more biologically active free thyroxine (FT4), which could help to explain any symptoms you may have.
This profile includes important vitamins and minerals which not only support your thyroid function, but which can also mimic the symptoms of an underactive thyroid if they are found to be low. We include tests for vitamin D, vitamin B12 and folate (vitamin B9) and ferritin (a marker for iron storage). We also include an inflammation marker to help interpret your iron (ferritin) result as well as give a picture of whether an autoimmune condition is causing inflammation in your body.

It is, however, very important to make sure that you are well-hydrated before taking a blood test. Read our top tips for taking a finger-prick blood test or look at our Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
To diagnose an underactive thyroid, your doctor will look at your symptoms together with the results of blood tests that measure the level of your thyroid hormones.
