Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum but have joined because my GP has not been straight with me these last 2 years now and have finally looked at maybe doing something about it for myself and thinking of my thyroid gland and my GP testing a thyroid hormone and saying everything is ok don't worry.
But then I look at the internet and there is a lot of information there saying that I should test for more things so I ask my Doctor and he says NO.
I had a look at getting private blood testing - there is a company in America where it seems I can get things done quite cheaply but I would have problems sending them my blood. What I have decided I need to test privately is tsh, ft4, ft3, antibodies, folate, vitamin b12 and ferritin, and have found an online company in the UK called medicheks but it will cost me £247! Bupa and Nuffield want to see me first and a referral too and I don't want to ask my doctor asyou could understand.
Can anyone recommend a doctor in the UK that can do this a bit cheaper - it doesn't seem fair that I have to pay at all but 247 is too much - I can get it done in the USA for a lot less!
