Yes.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi wani. I will be answering your concern.

TSH test can be done after breakfast. There is no need to be fasting.
If you are taking thyroid hormone ( Thyroxine/Eltroxin) tablet, on the day of the test DON'T TAKE THE TABLET BEFORE THE TEST. You can take it once the blood is drawn for the test.

I hope I have answered your concern.
If you have any further queries do contact me through Healthcare Magic. If you have no further concern please close the discussion.
