I wonder if anyone has had issues with their GP surgery testing Vit D
I asked several times (this was ages back, before I gave up after seeing several), and first told no, only old people might be lacking, next I was told they'd do it and being one of those that can black out after serum tests, wasn't watching what tests were done - but when I got the results the hosp lab that they'd been sent to stated on results - no separate Vid D sample enclosed (I was fuming as it is a major trauma blodd tests for me) .... months later when I had to have more tests and I always tell them what I want, even if they wont do them - I said Vit D is a must....only to be told, no, because it has to arrive in the lab within 10 minutes!
OK don't tell me to do private test - I know there is the pad/pinprick version one can buy, altho if it is so sensitive, I cant see how that can be best or reliable - but aside financial worries, hence not buying private test - I have yet to get up the nerve to do it, as heard it can be awkward to get anything out and widget ca be hard to press and so on...........I know I'm NOT your best forum member for getting things done...but that is how I am ... so muddle along doing what I can.
I would be pretty sure I MIGHT be lacking as I don't strip off or go out in the sun ever (don't ask) nor can I stand heat above say 16 degrees - but I cant do bright either...hahaha - sorry to disappoint you all! We are ALL different in make up! So unless by some miracle I have had enough in diet all along (which is questionable...but if you think about it, we got so far through life before getting this ill)....
I am merely wanting to know from those of you that get tested at a GP surgery therefore the samples have to travel to a hosp lab - on timing, because I don't like being lied to if that has occurred!! This no, because it needs to get there in 10 mins seems weird as all samples would face same thing??!
Once I had a clotting test and it had to be redone due to apparently person collecting from GP - the weather was hot, so car was hot?!! You've read it here!! Again, I don't appreciate as I am a fainty sort and wuss now - got worse with thyroid thing...as who on earth wants to be a pin cushion for life anyway - well you know what I mean... if they get you stable that might not be the case - but even yearly too much for me...LOL.
So IF you live one or two miles from the hospital lab and your GP tests and sends them - I would like to hear from you on any excuses.
if any GPs or labs are reading this - please realise you aren't helping the situ with these issues, espec when people DONT find the tests easy to go through with anyway!
