Thyroid Health Test
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
What is it?
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, or TSH, is produced by the pituitary gland and regulates the production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland. TSH levels are affected by a number of factors, including stress, diet, and certain medications. An imbalance of TSH levels may indicate an underactive or overactive thyroid, which can cause fatigue and dimish your ability to effectively excercise.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does this test work?
Healthyr At-Home Tests all use the latest Dried Blood Spot technology to safely collect a sample at home and then have it processed in one of our CLIA certified labs. This involves using a small lancet, pricking your finger and dripping the blood onto the provided card.
Does pricking my finger hurt?
Pain tolerence is relative to everyone. We use a small gauge lancet for minimal incision. If you're curious how big the incision is or where to prick please refer to our Instructional Video to see. It's on every product page if you scroll through our images. And we promise, this won't hurt any worse then spending hours at the doctor's office.
What if I can’t get enough blood on the card?
Three lancets are provided to give you the best chance of collecting enough blood for the sample. We recommend drinking a glass of water thirty minutes before collecting your sample, washing your hands in warm water, and raising your heart rate just before lancing. A couple ways you can raise your heartrate is by doing 20 jumping jacks or looking at pictures of your ex on Instagram.
What if I follow those tips and still can’t get enough blood?
1) You probably don't need to be worried about being a vampire's first victim and 2) Call us and we're happy to help. Our Customer Service Number is on your test box and here at 833-416-6816. If you have trouble during the collection process, please reach out to us and we can provide a new test kit. We are also happy to walk you through the test while you take it.
What happens if my sample gets lost in the mail?
Regrettably, we don’t have any control over the mail, but we will keep track of your sample and notify you if it appears lost. If you need us to find your tracking information reach out and we're happy to find it for you!
What would cause my sample to get rejected?
• The most common rejection reasons are not enough or too much blood or smearing.
• Red blood must cross the 1st line. Passing the 3rd line is okay, but the lab actually needs to punch out the serum (whiteish part).
• If you let the strip dry and then go to add more blood, it will not separate correctly. Once a strip gets wet, you must add enough blood before it dries.
• Once you have completed your collection, ensure that the blood is dried completely before putting it in the mailer bag.
What happens if my sample gets rejected?
In the event that the lab is unable to process your sample, you will receive notice and a new kit, free of charge.
How do I get my sample to the lab?
Every Healthyr Test comes with a prepaid USPS shipping envelope and a biohazard bag. All you have to do is place your sample and the provided biohazard bag into the prepaid shipping envelope and place it in your mailbox or drop it off at your nearest Post Office.
How long will it take to receive my results?
From the time that the lab receives your sample, it will take approximately 1-3 days to receive your results.
