Thyroid blood test for a TSH + fT3 + fT4 analysis
The cerascreen® Thyroid Test can measure the concentration of the three thyroid hormones TSH (thyrotropin), fT4 (free thyroxine) and fT3 (free triiodothyronine). The results provide you with initial indications of how well-functioning your thyroid is.
It is estimated that one in 20 people in the UK have a thyroid problem, while it is 10 times more common for women. If you identify the issues at an early stage, the thyroid can often be treated very well. A useful first step towards diagnosis is the analysis of thyroid hormones. If you want to find out about your thyroid levels, a blood test measuring your hormone levels is the only way to find out.
