Thyroid Patient Stories

Thyroid Patient Stories


I just used one of your finger prick kits, to get some up to date blood testing of my Thyroid, B12, Vit D etc. I have a lack of free time, (with a business and 2 children) and it can be difficult to get an appointment at my GP's, and I would prefer not to spend any more time in a doctors surgery. I liked the convenience and speed of the finger prick test which was delivered quickly, took only a few minutes to do and I had the results back very quickly too. The "tips" sheet you  provided was very also very helpful.

The lab my GP surgery use would not test everything I needed to have an informed diagnosis, so in May this year I looked for alternatives through Thyroid UK and BH came highly recommended.

Once I'd pricked my finger the blood flowed brilliantly for about 2 seconds! No need to panic, following the instructions, I then massaged my finger to get the flow going again & was able to fill the capsule. Posted off, I was amazed to get my results 2 days later! Brilliant service & I have recommended it to so many others since, because it is so simple & quick.

I have done a fingerprick test before (Thyroid Plus 10) and eventually managed with some difficulty to get enough for the test. My results came back much as expected comparing to a previous GP test so I don't think I messed up completely!

I think all of us on the thyroid forum feel confident in what Blue Horizon offers so feel comfortable with the finger prick testing.

I like to use your finger prick tests for my thyroid blood panel because I can choose the day and time, it is very easy to do and I get the results back quickly by email, so I can print them off. You offer a range of tests and the price is very competitive and you support the Thyroid UK charity. Keep up the good work.
