Private Thyroid Testing – What’s the Cost?

How much does a thyroid test cost? What might it uncover and what’s the benefit of doing so?

Private thyroid testing might not cost as much as you expect. And you may also be surprised to hear you can carry out the test itself using a finger prick kit at home, saving the cost and inconvenience of visiting a clinic.

Our private thyroid test is just £49. You simply buy the kit, we post it out and you return your sample.

Just a couple of days later, you’ll receive a results dashboard with analysis of your levels of the following:

  • Triiodothyronine (T3)

  • Thyroxine (T4)

  • Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)

By analysing all three of these markers, you get a clear picture of how your thyroid is performing and whether you may need to seek medical help.

Why Have a Private Thyroid Test?

If you suspect you may have a problem with your thyroid and are experiencing symptoms like the ones outlined below, then a private thyroid test might provide you the answers you need.

The benefits of private thyroid testing include:

  • Fast testing times without a lengthy wait either for a test or the results

  • More details results than you may get from your GP

With a standard test your GP may refer you for, it’s very common that you receive no more detail than whether there is a problem or not and no specific information relating to TSH, T3 or T4 levels.

Thyroid Disorders - More Common than you Might Think

An estimated 1 in 20 of us will experience a thyroid disorder of some sort in our lifetime. And the symptoms can be pretty uncomfortable to say the least.

Those with underactive thyroids can experience a host of symptoms, including:

  • Weight gain

  • Fatigue

  • Weakness

  • Dry skin and hair

  • Muscle cramps, aches and pains

An underactive thyroid can also lead to high cholesterol levels, which can increase your risk of high blood pressure and heart problems.

On the other hand, those with overactive thyroids may experience:

  • Anxiety and low mood

  • Hand tremors

  • Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat

  • Difficulty sleeping
