Hi I wondered if, since ThyroidUK now has many more members than the BTF they might speak up to the NHS on behalf of patients who are taking some kind of T3 containing med about the labs taking it upon themselves to not do the test even when Dr asks for it? I do not relish having the needle stuck into me extra times especially since I suffer from Addison's syndrome, I find it extra stressful. The Dr did put on that I needed it testing and that I was on T3 containing meds.
Can you think of anything can be done to alter this common practice? She says the surgery will have paid for it since it was ordered.
