New Private Blood Test Profile for Thyroid – The PLUS T
Introducing a new Thyroid Profile, the Advanced PLUS T, available at both Spire and Nuffield Hospitals throughout the UK.
We have been asked now for some time by our Thyroid patients for a new mid level thyroid profile, with more inclusions than the Advanced Profile ( Just TSH, FT3, FT4 and Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies), but not as expensive as our comprehensive thyroid test.
We are pleased to say that we have now got a suitable profile, of which the inclusions are below.
Private Thyroid Blood Test – Advanced PLUS T
TSH – Assists screening and Diagnosis of Thyroid Disorders.
FT4 – Used in conjunction with TSH to screen and diagnose thyroid disease.
FT3 – Helps to evaluate Thyroid Gland Function and monitor treatment.
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies – Helps diagnose autoimmune thyroid disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
Thyroid Stimulating Receptor Antibodies – Useful for evaluating Grave’s Disease
Folate – Low folate status is linked to hypothyroidism.
Ferritin – Low Ferritin can give similar symptoms very similar to hypothyroidism
Vitamin B12 – Deficiency of this vitamin can be very low in primary hypothyroidism
Vitamin D – Good Vitamin D levels contribute to good thyroid function.
Zinc - Both Hypothyroidism AND Hyperthyroidism can result in Zinc deficiency
Magnesium – Levels are important as Magnesium is needed for conversion from T4 to T3.
Selenium – Selenium levels play a major role in thyroid hormone functions, including T4 to T3 conversion.

TDL Laboratory not yet participating, but hopefully some news very soon, so that would open it up to postal packs and attendance in London. Hoping for some good discounts here too!
Thyroid UK will receive a £10 donation for every test requested using the thyroidspecial discount code. We only have permission from the laboratory to do so many of these tests at this discount, so we are giving Thyroid UK members a chance first before doing a mailshot in the last half of the month.
