Frequently Asked Question

What can I expect to happen?

When you attend your appointment the nurse will ask you some basic medical questions to ensure you are well enough for the blood test. Your screen will consist of a blood sample, usually from your arm.

Do I need to prepare?

There is no need to fast (go without food or drinks) for this test.

We do suggest keeping your arm warm, as being cold can sometimes make it harder to draw your blood, and stay well hydrated.

If blood tests make you anxious, let your nurse know at the start of your appointment. They will do their best to make the experience as stress-free as possible.

About the Advanced Thyroid Function Screen

 Thyroid disorders are common and can easily go undetected. Symptoms of a problem with the thyroid function include weight gain, tiredness, low mood and depression, and are often overlooked by patients suffering from disorders.

The Advanced Thyroid Functions Screen measures the levels of three hormones Triiodothyronine (T3), Thyroxine (T4) and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), and tests for the Anti-TPI Antibody status. These tests will help our doctors to diagnose a thyroid disorder, such as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, but can also help to detect an autoimmune thyroid disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Grave’s disease. 

Hypothyroidism, underactive thyroid is the most common thyroid disorder and can be managed with life style and medication.

To monitor the performance of your thyroid over time we suggest you follow this test with an annual Thyroid function test.

Our blood testing services are available for patients aged 16 years and over

You will need to consent to the nurse setting up a Melio Health account for you and your personal data being entered on the Melio patient portal; their terms and conditions can be found Melio Health Terms of Use.
