THYROID ANNUAL REVIEWS
The usual blood tests done for thyroid function are TSH, T4 and sometimes T3. A blood sample is taken from a vein in the arm and sent off to the laboratory for analysis. Usually the ‘free’ or active portion of T4 and T3 is measured (i.e., FT4 and FT3). Laboratories use reference ranges to compare blood test results with results in the normal healthy population.
Invites are issued at least once a year to all patients with Thyroid problems who are currently taking thyroid replacement medication, including Levothyroxine.
It is important to attend your annual review even when you are feeling well so we can assess your thyroid condition and how well your medication is helping you at your baseline, not just when you are unwell. Having a blood level that is too high or too low can cause other health issues which are important to pick up and prevent, but don't always cause obvious symptoms.
Your appointment will be with one of our Treatment Room Nurses or Phlebotomists and will require a blood sample. When we have the result, we will only contact you if need a change in medication dose or an earlier repeat test.
If you do not get a call back and would still like to know your result, you can still the phone the Practice after one week and ask if your results have been checked by your GP.
For more information about thyroid conditions visit.
Invites are issued once a year to all patients diagnosed with one or more of the following conditions:- Diabetes, Heart Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, Stroke, Hypertension, Peripheral Arterial Disease.
If you have more than one of the above conditions, you will only be called in once and your combination of conditions will be reviewed at the same time.
It is important to attend your annual review even when you are feeling well so we can monitor your condition, reduce your risk of complications and to live as full and healthy a life as possible.
The first appointment will be with our phlebotomists for blood, blood pressure and urine tests. Please bring a mid-stream urine sample with you (white topped bottles can be obtained from the surgery)
Guidance on collecting mid-stream urine samples is here:
The second appointment, which will be at least 1 week later, will be with a Nurse in our Virtual Clinic, using NearMe video consultation or telephone, where your initial results will be discussed and you will be asked questions about your general health and given advice on healthy living.
For more information about long term health conditions visit.
