Special instructionsActive B12 levels can be affected by use of vitamin B12 supplements. If you are taking an oral supplement then we recommend not taking it for one week prior to the test to ensure an accurate measure of your B12 levels. If vitamin B12 is being prescribed to you by your doctor then you should discuss with them how long to omit B12 supplements for.
This advanced thyroid profile contains everything you need to give you a clear picture of your thyroid health. This profile includes tests for 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 tests for free triiodothyronine (FT3) to see how well you are converting thyroxine (FT4) to the more biologically active FT3.
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.
