Not confirmed yet - advice on independent testing required and which test to take



I have just returned from the doctors yesterday and am being referred for tests, however I have to wait until my period starts before I can go for the blood test (I presume because my hormones are 'up' during my period?) Anyway, not sure I can wait an entire month as my symptoms are getting me down - panic attacks, dizziness, blurred vision, pins and needles, etc. When I read the list of symptoms it seems to click plus my mum had thyroid cancer, but she's fine now. Is it hereditary?

I am interested in taking the 24 hour urine test undertaken by Geneva but am unsure which one to opt for from the lab. Can you advise please?

Hi Start with the essential, TSH, T4 and Fee T3, was always standard but now down to GP and costs.Make sure a well known Lab so if you show a doc ,they accept them. Discount from Blue Horizon, TUK10, not sure of the others as I always use, BH

Best wishes,
