Why take this test?
Thyroid problems are common
It’s estimated around 1 in 20 people in the UK have some kind of thyroid disorder. Symptoms can be vague, but a blood test can help to identify the problem. With thyroid autoantibodies included you can learn if a thyroid problem is due to autoimmune disease.
Do I need to fast?
Fasting is not necessary for this test. Avoid high dose biotin.
No hidden costs
Everything from the in-clinic blood draw and tracked shipment of samples to the lab, through to delivery of the results and medical report is included in the price.
This test is performed as an in-clinic blood draw by a trained health professional and the samples are analysed by UKAS accredited labs.
Markers included in the analysis
The thyroid affects practically all cells in the body, and has a key role in metabolism, growth, body temperature, sleep and fertility. When the thyroid is not functioning correctly symptoms can be vague, but a blood test is a good way to identify a problem. This test includes results for 3 thyroid hormones, TPO antibodies, and a personal medical report. Click on any of the tabs above for a breakdown of the markers included. You can also click on each marker to learn more. Please note that this test should only be taken on weekdays (Monday - Friday).
The thyroid is a gland located in the neck that produces hormones regulating our metabolism (how we use and store energy), as well as other bodily functions. Symptoms of weight gain, fatigue, depression and feeling cold, can all be due to an underactive thyroid - the most common thyroid disorder. A thyroid profile is used to evaluate thyroid function to diagnose and control hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. This test measures your levels of the three thyroid hormones Triiodothyronine (T3), Thyroxine (T4) and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH).

The anti-TPO antibody test is used for detection of autoimmune thyroid disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Grave’s disease. Checking for anti-TPO helps differentiate autoimmune thyroid disorders from non-autoimmune ones. Anti-TPO is a type of autoantibody. Autoantibodies are produced by the immune system, but instead of outside invaders such as viruses and bacteria, autoantibodies attack the body itself. In this instance anti-TPO attacks thyroid peroxidase (TPO) - an enzyme found in the thyroid gland, needed for the production of thyroid hormones. Attacks on the TPO enzyme block its activity, which in turn affects the production of thyroid hormones.
