Sample Collection Options for your TSH Test
The absolute baseline, and often the only, test needed for monitoring stable thyroid maintenance regimes. If your Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) level is in the lower reaches of the normal range while you are taking thyroxine replacement, and you have no symptoms, it is likely that all is well and no further testing is required. A high level of TSH generally means an underactive thyroid gland (or under-replacement with thyroxine), while a low level implies an overactive thyroid gland (or over-replacement with thyroxine).
TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is a hormone manufactured in the pituitary gland (found in the brain). It s role is to stimulate thyroxine production in the thyroid gland (found in the neck). A high level within a health screening is associated with an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) and a low level is found if the thyroid gland is over-active (hyperthyroidism). Changes in the TSH level alone can indicate underlying thyroid problems even if the thyroxine levels are normal.

Utterly patient, kind and helpful, kit arrived next day, as did my results. 5 stars well-deserved.UK
Great service and product. The turn around is brilliant (mostly - there was a glitch during the early part of the Covid pandemic, but that seems to be resolved now). Tests are recognised by the medical profession so I am able to use the results to get the treatment I need without further tests.UK
I had various questions which they answered via email/webchat and the timing of getting a kit, sending it back and getting the results was good.UK
