How to prepare
We ask you to fast for six hours before your health assessment. This means you may not eat or drink anything during this time, although water is fine, as is black coffee or tea without milk or sugar. Blood tests will be taken for your assessment, and they might return falsely high values if you have eaten.
If you’re on a course of Levaxin or Euthyrox, we ask you not to medicate on the day of your health assessment.
If you wear glasses or contact lenses, please bring them. If you’re over 50 and wear contact lenses, you should remove them for the examination (we’ll be measuring intraocular pressure).
After your assessment, a complimentary vegetarian snack and hot drink will be available in our café. Please tell us in advance of any allergies you have.
