Gjsjnsjsjs! GP! Jdjakajxjsj! I quote 'Only the tsh is used as a value for determining thyroid activity' !! I was gobsmacked! After reading and researching about thyroid disease over the last four weeks before I went to see the gp in order to present with symptoms and a strong family history of thyroid issues to be told 'we no longer test for t4 as it is not a reliable marker' and then to add insult 'I think you may be mildly depressed let me prescribe some anti depressants for you after that is why you are here'. So on to plan B private blood tests to get a full picture before going any further.
