Sample Collection Options for your Thyroid Premium Silver Test
Our Thyroid Premium Silver profile includes the classically tested components of thyroid function found in the Thyroid Premium Bronze profile, essential for both diagnosis of thyroid disorders and for monitoring of any treatment regimes - Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), T, Free Triiodothyronine (FT3), Total Thyroxine (T4) and Free Thyroxine (FT4) - along with Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPO antibodies) and Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TG antibodies). The Blue Horizon laboratory team have gone a little bit further than our rivals with the Premium range - for no extra charge Serum Cortisol and Serum Magnesium are included in this profile. It is widely reported that high cortisol levels can affect thyroid function, and vice versa. Magnesium has a particularly important role in the conversion of FT4 to FT3. For an in depth appreciation of your thyroid status choose the Thyroid Premium Silver profile.

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
