History : Age 67. 2008, Small B Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. 2013, Total Thryoidectomy. Arthritis onset in the year following the Thyroidectomy. Probably Leaky gut Syndrome from early childhood. Allergic reactions to: Penicillin, chlorine in swimming pools , seasonal hayfever, sinus problems etc., and many other annoying, dibilitating and oscillating problems associated with hypothyroidism.
Many, many things are just not right which make my life so unpredictable that we have to live each day as it comes. Therefore it seems that the obvious place to start in unraveling the conundrum is having blood tests.
As we live in France, we can arrange to have a Bilan Sante ( a comprehensive blood test) through the Fr health system but it will not cover vitamins and mineral testing. I am arranging to have a Bilan Sante this week and plan to arrange for other tests (privately) as recommended by people on this site next week, as advised by people in this forum, after I have had the results of the Fr test.
Should any other test be included as well as: Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Iron, Folate, Ferritin ?
I would appreciate your thoughts and advice Many thanks
