Showdown

Hi folks, I'm off to the docs tomorrow this time I'm seeing a locum in the hope I might actually get some results, no pun intended.

I know to ask for my last blood results which if not inclusive of TSH, T4 and T3 get them done

I also know my B12 is low as is my folate but, should I ask about hyper parathyroid tests due to my sudden (1 year) of developing a 3-4mm kidney stone, I have never had one and did have internal investigations for a stone last year which was negative, I think it's blood calcium test.

Anything else I should ask.

  • Geordi, re the kidney stones ask for calcium, phosphate, parathyroid hormone and vitD to be tested.

    Are you supplementing low B12 and folate?

  • I had a kidney stone while hypothyroid. I've assumed it just goes with the territory. If you want to do blood mineral tests, I think you should make sure you are fully euthyroid before doing so, because so many things depend on thyroid.

    You should have the "frees", FT3, etc. The minimum panel recommended by thyroid advocates: TSH, FT3, FT4, rT3, TPO antibodies, TG antibodies.
