Thyroid Basic | Weight Loss Screening Pathology


TSH, free T4, free T3

The Thyroid Basic / Weight Loss Screening Pathology is designed to test for thyroid problems, with a particular focus on the way in which it affects an individual’s weight. This package is suited to those who have a previous medical history of thyroid issues or concerns.


The Thyroid Basic / Weight Loss Screening Pathology is designed to test for existing or underlying thyroid issues. If you have had pre existing Thyroid issues, our medical team will require further information before they can approve medical programs from our weight loss category (In particular semaglutide GLP weight loss peptide). A contraindication for Semaglutide is potential interactions with pre-existing MTC (medullary thyroid carcinoma). This test will determine if a patient qualifies for the particular weight loss program containing semaglutide.

Please note, this test is sent directly to your address and can be completed at most pathology collection centres.

Extra Information 

The thyroid gland secretes hormones which regulate important metabolic processes like growth and energy expenditure. These hormones are crucial to numerous biochemical processes, and without healthy thyroid function, can be insufficiently distributed and used throughout the body. This sample can detect markers of hypothyroidism (underactive) and hyperthyroidism (overative) of the thyroid gland.

These conditions are reflected in the health and efficiency of the body’s metabolism, and can be detected through the Thyroid Microsample.
