I had my blood tested after finding a large lump on my neck which has caused me difficulty breathing and swallowing. The Dr. said they would give me a blood test to make sure my Thyroid is functioning ok.
I phoned up for my results and was told 'they are out of the ranges but are normal'. Then I reached a brick wall when I asked what are the ranges that are abnormal. The nurse couldn't tell me the answer. So today I decided to go into my surgery and request a print out of my results. The receptionist sat literally umming and ahhing and not saying a thing and made up every excuse she could think of to NOT print out my results. She went from - The printer is broken all the way to I can't have them in case I misplace them. So after me telling them that I have a RIGHT to MY own results did she give in and give them to me.
I had 3 different tests done but she has only given me 2 print outs I want to see if any of these are an indication of thyroid functioning or if she has magically avoided given me the ONE test result I needed.
I have a FBC which was ABNORMAL due to a high amount of Large unsustained cells (I'm not too sure what that means.
Then on the other sheet I have
Serum Cholesterol, Urea and electrolytes (Abnormal - Low)
Plasma C reactive protein
Are any of these what is used to test thyroid function?? Or are they avoiding giving me my Thyroid results.
The status also says NK which I THINK means natural killer. Does anyone know what that is?
Thanks in advance.
