This Thyroid home test kit is a rapid self-test that qualitatively detects the presence of TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) in whole blood specimens at the sensitivity of 5μlU/ml, utilising a combination of monoclonal antibodies to selectively detect elevated levels of TSH in whole blood.
This test is clinically CE marked for home use and is over 98.2% accurate.
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.
Testing of TSH levels in the blood is considered the best initial test for hypothyroidism, which can then be followed up with a more in-depth thyroid health check, or our most comprehensive Thyroid Health and Antibodies blood test.
How do I read my results?
Read results at 10 minutes.
POSITIVE: Two lines appear. Both T (test) and C (control) line appear. This result means that the TSH level is higher than the normal (5μIU/mL) and that you should consult a physician.
NEGATIVE: One line appears. Only control line appears (C). This result means that the TSH level is not in the range to consider hypothyroidism.
