Thank you

To all the people who listened to me and gave me advice last week in regards to whether I should get tested. My doctor is happy to test my tsh, tsh4, I think he then said depending on how the results come back he would then test thyroid antibodies or he would test them anyway, I can't remember what he said for that. Equally he wants to test me for caeliacs (not sure if that's how you spell it. Pronounced see-lee-acs) and he has also ordered some other test as well. He was lovely and said that doctors encourage testing for thyroid conditions. After reading posts on here I think he is in the minority.

Anyway, I am having blood test next week at 9.55 on Tuesday(earliest morning time I could get). Am I right in thinking its a fasting test, I'm sure that's what the dr said.

  • No need for it to be a fasting test. Glad you have a good doc :) x

  • Glitterypinksam, apparently TSH is lower after food. See Helvella's post and link in this thread healthunlocked.com/thyroidu...

    Your GP may have added cholesterol to the bloods order so definitely fast on this test and allow 12 hours between last food/drink and the blood draw.
