T3 test ( or not!)

So ... I went to docs as I can't lose weight ( eat real food, no caffeine crap or Junk) I get a newly qualified doc! So I told her I thought I was not converting ! I asked to see endo, let's try doing a t3 blood test first then I can send you!

I wait 3 weeks for appt after bloods! Turns out they did t do T 3 ( I did know they may not do it!)

She said y do u want to see a endo?

Because I don't feel right n not losing weight at all!

But we don't check t3 as its a specialist test! Unless u have other markers. Your tests are normal! i said what about checking the actual person? U can't go by a blood test alone it's madness!!

But I'm not losing weight so that means something!!

So in the end I said to her I'd go get my own ruddy test!

Feeling very very irritated!!

They really don't like you questioning them!

You can have the tests done yourself by mail..There's laboratories that will do it without prescription. But you have to pay out of pocket, but the price isn't ridiculous. There's a lab I use for the 24 hour adrenal DHEA, if you want the name. That test is $125
