I have my next bloods due end of March. I at the moment am suffering from awful anxiety and agoraphobia due to my physical symptoms flaring up my anxiety disorder again. The fatigue daily and the ground moving/bouncing as i walk has made me too afraid to go to appointments, shops etc... My GP has been out to my house 3 times in 3 months due to my symptoms. So this means i can't go for bloods, especially fasted at 8am by myself, and I have 3 children to get to school.
So my question is do i go back to Blue Horizon or the NHS for my bloods. My last bloods were with Blue Horizon in mid January this year.
My results with the NHS August 2015
TSH 5.35 (0.35-5.50)
FT4 11 (7-17)
Blue Horizon January 2016
TSH - 6.54 (0.27-4.20)
FT4 14.2 (12-22)
FT3 5.37 (3.1-6.8)
Total T4 110.3 (64.5-142)
Antibodies all fine.
So would it be best to go with Blue Horizon to compare to January? Are they a well known lab and accurate? I just want to make sure I am getting accurate results. The NHS say they wait for TSH to be 10 before treatment but someone here told me recently that results differ from lab to lab, I assumed it was just the range that differed not the actual result. So I thought a TSH of 6.54 with Blue Horizon would be 6.54 on an NHS test. So would it be closer or further away from 10 on the NHS range if I had it done with them, I feel I need to know this if my GP is waiting until I hit the magic 10. I hope this makes sense lol!
