I have been taking Naturethroid for 3 to 4 months, increasing gradually from 30mg daily to 130mg.
Oct 2013 blood test results: TSH: 8.1 (0.3 - 4.2), FT4: 15.6 (12 - 22).
Had walked to GP who agreed to following tests: thyroid profile, b12, folate, calcium (bone profile), magnesium, zinc, vit d3, iron and thyroglobuin antibody tests.
In Oct 2013 already had Thyroid peroxidase antibodies: 16 (0.00 - 34.00). B12 260 (190 - 663); folate 8.1 (4.60 - 18.70), iron 15 (6.60 - 26.00); serum calcium 2.21 (2.15-2.55). So have been supplementing all these for approx 5 months. Also supplementing Vit D3.
When I asked for a glucose test she said they don't do them any more, but they do HbA1c but only if suspected diabetes. I told her my dad had diabetes (type 2) so she included this test. She refused cortisol, as she said would be pointless.
Should I have any other tests?
