Yes thyroid test can be done at any time of the day, no fasting required. However, ideally if you want to do it, blood for thyroid test should be given on empty stomach (morning fasting sample) before taking the thyroid tablet & then continue the tablet as usual till u meet ur endocrinologist, thanks.
