Thyroid Profile – (£40)
Used to diagnose overactive (hyperthyroidism) and underactive (hypothyroidism) thyroid disease.
If you had hypothyroidism (elevated TSH, decreased T4), you may present with weight gain, dry skin, constipation, cold intolerance, hair loss, fatigue and menstrual irregularity (in women).
If you had hyperthyroidism (decreased TSH, elevated T4), you may present with a fast heart rate, anxiety, weight loss, hand tremor, weakness and diarrhoea.
Occasionally false positive’s (bloods suggest you have a thyroid disease falsely) occur and may be related to concomitant medication use, acute illness (even a common cold) or pregnancy. Hence it is important to recheck your thyroid profile at least after 1 month, to ensure that you truly do have a thyroid disease.
Thyroid Profile (including T3) – (£50)
This is exactly the same as the above Thyroid profile, but it also checks your free T3 level. It is mainly ordered to diagnose hyperthyroidism and may be ordered to monitor the treatment of your thyroid disorder. T4 is converted to T3 by the liver and other organs.
