I posted earlier this week asking for some advice and have now seen the GP and got a print out of my last test results. The only test I have had is TSH. This came back as 3.03 (range 0.6-4.2). I queried having T3/T4 tested and the doctor basically said he requested a thyroid function test and the lab select which tests need to be done based on the TSH. I said that I had seen information suggesting that TSH tests alone were not sufficient, and he said that they go by what medical school teaches, and that the Internet is full of all sorts. SO. First question, is this TSH level acceptable? All my symptoms say hypothyroid, so I think I should still push to see an Endo? Thanks
