Having just came back from an Endo appointment with most of my vital readings 'just' within reference range, do you think we should push for a 'Non-thyroid specific blood test'?
Firstly, it would help those who do not know they can go deficient in certain minerals when they have their thyroid removed.
Secondly, it will avoid several trips to the Endo as we all know they play the guessing game of 'until you actually say it to me, I wont be forthcoming' A separate framework blood test will flag up that certain readings should be in the higher ranges.
Thirdly, it will help to improve the health of other patients by ruling out deficiencies before treating other unrelated symptoms.
What do you guys think? I can organise an on line petition if you wish?
