Product Description

The Home Thyroid TSH blood test is a fast indication of underactive thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism).

Perfect for identifying underactive thyroid or issues relating to hypothyroidism. Checking the level of TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) as a key health marker can assist with understanding weight gain and other symptoms.


This test uses a small sample of blood in a compact testing kit which is mailed directly to you. In the box, there will be full instructions provided on how to complete the sample and testing process in 10 minutes.

The easy-to-use CE-approved testing kit is shipped within 24 business hours.


Checking the Thyroid level can be an important part of a health regime and a first step to further investigation if results indicate anything underactive. Hypothyroidism can start slowly with no immediate symptoms until it has advanced. Obvious symptoms displayed include:

  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Irregular or heavy periods
  • Feeling fatigued, cold or tired regularly
  • Forgetfulness and depression

Items Tested

The thyroid is a gland that produces hormones and releases them into the bloodstream that controls the rate at which the body uses and stores energy from the food we eat, also known as the metabolic rate.

▶ A TSH level higher than 5μIU/mL indicates a higher-than-normal level and the possibility of an underactive thyroid.

The test provides results based on a Positive/Higher or Negative/Normal basis. Positive results can then be used to request a secondary test or consult further medical advice.


Thyroid-stimulating hormone (also known as thyrotropin, thyrotropic hormone, TSH, or hTSH for human TSH) is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine (T4) and then triiodothyronine (T3) which stimulates the metabolism of almost every tissue in the body (1).

It is a glycoprotein hormone synthesised and secreted by thyrotrope cells in the anterior pituitary gland, which regulates the endocrine function of the thyroid (2).

TSH (with a half-life of about an hour) stimulates the thyroid gland to secrete the hormone thyroxine (T4), which has only a slight effect on metabolism.

T4 is converted to triiodothyronine (T3), which is the active hormone that stimulates metabolism. About 80% of this conversion is in the liver and other organs, and 20% in the thyroid itself (1).
