I have just seen my GP with a TSH of 3.5 free T4 of 11.3 (range 12-22) free T3 4 (range 3.1-6.8). I had these tests done privately as I have had many symptoms of hypothyroidism. She assured me that these symptoms could not be because of my thyroid as my TSH is well within range. She said that free T4 Is not used as a marker for treatment only TSH which could only be treated when over 10 on the NHS. Do I have a right to ask for a referral to an Endrocologist and would they be likely to treat or would I be better off looking for a private doctor?
