Introducing the Thyroid Check PLUS 11

Introducing the Thyroid Check PLUS 11

Hi there TUK community!

If you keep up with my infrequent rambling posts on here, you'll be aware of a couple of new thyroid profiles that we have introduced in the last few months.

These being the Thyroid Check PLUS TEN and the Thyroid Check PLUS TWELVE.

The PLUS 12 is basically the PLUS 10 with Vitamin D and Reverse T3.

The PLUS 11 therefore is like the awkward middle child between the two, but quite a handy one.

The website price is £129, but pop in your TUK10 code and you'll get £10 off - so Available to you guys at £119.

This is available as both microtainer (fingerprick) and vacutainer (phlebotomy) - if it is microtainer then the Vitamin D will be conducted last in case there is not enough sample. In this instance a refund of £30 will be given which equates to you having a PLUS TEN in the first place, or hey, we'll send out another microtainer for JUST VIT D to make up for it.

I think with the PLUS SIX, TEN, ELEVEN and TWELVE this family is large enough for the time being, especially for microtainers!!!

Have a great night,

  • Paul,

    For members information are all the tests available by microtainer (fingerpick) ? ?.

    This is obviously the easier option as saves phlebotomy costs.

  • Hi Flower, absolutely, however, see my note in the post regarding the order in which the tests are undertaken.

    A nice, full microtainer please!

    Paul :-)

  • Paul, is your basic thyroid blood test (TSH, free T4 and free T3 also available with microtainer? Last time I looked on your website, it didn't seem clear and I wondered if you would need to get blood drawn, and if so, why? Thanks

  • Thanks to flower I can see that I did allude to the plus 12 being Microtainer friendly, but sadly not. I might see if the lab will accept two though. Fingers crossed.

    Paul 😊

  • Hi BHM, why do you continue to test the TT4? We all know it gives no useful information. Just curious.

  • Hi Greygoose,

    Our Doctors wonders why we test the TT4 also!

    The reason is simply that it is included as a base test in the assays that the labs use for that level of test (the PLUS SIX and above) and the tests wouldn't be any cheaper without it.

    Paul :-)

  • OK Fair enough. :)

  • Does the cost of the test include issuing a prescription, if needed, and if so can you prescribe NDT please?

  • Hi Lebs,

    The cost of the test included our Doctors' referral to the Laboratory, but we do not issue prescriptions. I think NDT is a reasonably active topic on this forum, it would be best to use NDT as a search term in the search box above.

    Hope this helps,

    Paul.
