This check builds on the Thyroid Check Advanced by also including Vitamin D

This test includes (expand individual tests for details):

 

Inflammation Marker

C Reactive Protein (High Sensitivity)

C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is an inflammation marker used to assess whether there is inflammation in the body. Inflammation is your body protecting your tissues if you have been injured or have an infection. It is also used as a screen for auto-immune diseases.

 

Iron Status

Ferritin

This test will measure your Ferritin levels. Ferritin stores iron in the body. Ferritin is tested to identify the storage capacity of iron in the body.

 

Thyroid Function

TSH

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is produced in the pituitary gland. It tells the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones (T3 & T4.) High levels of TSH indicate an underactive thyroid while low levels indicate an overactive thyroid.

Free T4

Thyroxine (T4) is one of two major hormones produced by the thyroid gland (the other is called triiodothyronine (T3)). This test can tell whether the thyroid is performing properly. Thyroid hormones help regulate your metabolism (how the body functions).

Thyroglobulin Abs

Thyroglobulin is a protein produced by the thyroid gland. Usually Thyroglobulin does not enter your blood, however, if your thyroid is inflames or is under attack from your own immune system, then it can enter the blood steam and be detected. High levels indicate an autoimmune thyroid disease.

Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies/Anti TPO

Thyroid peroxidase is an enzyme which is produced in the thyroid gland. It plays an important role in the production of thyroid hormones. This test looks for antibodies to thyroid peroxidase. The presence of these antibodies in your blood suggests that the cause of thyroid disease is an autoimmune disorder, such as Hashimoto disease or Graves disease.

Free T3

Triiodothyronine (T3) is one of two major hormones produced by the thyroid gland (the other is called Thyroxine(T4)). This test can tell whether the thyroid is performing properly. Thyroid hormones help regulate the your metabolism (how the body functions).

 

Vitamins

B12-Active

Vitamin B12 is essential for the production of red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body. Prolonged deficiency of vitamin B12 can also cause nerve damage. It is almost only found in meat and animal food products. This test measures the level of unbound or active B12 which is available for your cells. Low levels cause fatigue and low energy levels. Raised levels can be due to a blood or liver disorder.

Folate (Serum)

Folate or folic acid, known as vitamin B9 generates red and white blood cells. It helps to: make DNA, repair DNA, and produce red blood cells (RBCs.) Low levels cause fatigue, low energy levels, weakness, grey hair, growth problems, and pale skin.

Vitamin D (25 OH)

Vitamin D is a hormone which is created by sunlight on your skin. Abnormal levels of vitamin D can indicate bone disorders, nutrition problems, organ damage, or other medical conditions. Many people in the UK have low Vitamin D levels.
