Tests for Hashimoto's

Can anyone suggest a comprehensive list of tests for Hashimoto's. I guess it would include

1. Tsh

2. Ft3

3. Ft4

4. TG

5. TPO

6. Vitamin D3

7. B12

8. Ferritin

Any others please?

My last test was about 3-4 months ago.

I've suddenly started feeling poorly again - headaches, migraine, tired. It is hot and height of summer where I live so can't be the cold again.

I have been fairly active (30 minutes brisk walking a day) and sleeping ok.

Any ideas gratefully received.

I react to heat as well as cold. I think our cooling systems are broken as well as our heating!

I think GPs should also test for cholesterol levels, sodium, and GFR for kidney function. No doubt there are more....

The medics say that once there has been a test for antibodies which has established they're present, there's no point in testing for them again. I wonder what others think about that.

What level of medication are you on, and what were your last test results Adam?
