We partner with Irish company Let’s Get Checked who provide an excellent at-home testing service. It is simple and convenient to take your own blood sample at home using this kit. The sample is shipped to the same labs that regular blood samples are; it is the same test as the HSE or any doctor would carry out for you. However, you can choose to monitor your own thyroid health. Let’s Get Checked have a doctor available to discuss any measurements that are out of range or require follow up. Your Nutritionist will also be able to advise you on your results and how to support your thyroid health.
What is measured in this profile?
- Total and freeT4
- Antibodies – anti-thyroglobulin (anti-Tg) and anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO)

Taking the sample
Please watch this video before taking your blood sample – Blood Sampling Instructions. It is helpful to ensure that your hands are quite warm before trying to take the sample. Ensure that you maintain the blood flowing and fill the tube to the correct level. If you do not collect enough, the test cannot be run.
For support on any aspect of blood draw or issues with samples, please call 01 513 6654 to speak with a nurse.
Please send on a copy of your test results when you receive them. Your Nutritionist will review these and discuss these with you and relevant changes to your protocol during your next consultation.
If you are concerned about your thyroid, it might be helpful to carry out this test ahead of your initial consultation. For most other functional medicine tests, it is better to have your initial consultation first to assess the best testing options for you.
If you would prefer to attend for phlebotomy, and/or to include reverse T3, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or make an enquiry online.
