    How long should thyroid function blood test results take UK?

    HI

    So I've been told that I need to have some thyroid function blood tests and I was wondering how long they should take to come back. I am due to have the blood test tomorrow.

    I've had the symptoms for a long time now but my blood has never been conclusive of a thyroid problem. My last set of bloods (taken around 3 months ago) were slightly off in the thyroid function but not so much so that it was diagnosable but my doctor thought it was indicative that it would go underactive at some point. I've also usually got protein in my blood but no diagnosable reason for this.

    There is a slight family history (my mum's cousins son - so that makes him my second cousin I think or something like that).

    Hello @RainbowChaser for me they are pretty quick. Sometime's I give it in the morning and the results are back by afternoon. On the other hand sometimes it's not back up to 48 hours. Overall you should have it within 2 or 3 working days.

    Good luck with your tests and dont forget to ask for a copy for your records and references.
