Hope you're all having a good day.
For a background on my history, please see my old post:
I've now been off work for two weeks and was signed off work for another week today. I'm currently on 75mcg (since Friday). Spoke to the doctor today and as I was advised on this forum, I asked to be tested for vitamin d, ferritin, folate, b12 and iron. (I'm due for a blood test on Friday and the previous doctor only put T4 & TSH on the referral form). He said that he will request a full blood count and that will determine if I should be tested for ferritin and folate. I went to pick up the referrals and there is one which states full blood count (does that include TSH & T4?) and one form which states UE+GFR, calcium profile, 25 hydroxy vitamin d.
He also said that depending on the results, they might refer me to the hospital (specialist team, guess he means endocrinologist?) as they are unsure of how to deal with me since my TSH was so high (316).
So basically, what I'm wondering is what does a full blood count include? What's UE+GFR?
Thanks in advance
