I visited my doctor on Friday after having a blood test that showed high cholesterol 7.4, I had to wait 3 weeks for appointment. When I got in the surgery he said I needed to take statins, I asked him about the side effects and that I was not happy with taking them yet. I also have psoriais and psoratic arthritis. I asked him what the T3 and T4 results were and he said that for the 2nd time they had not been done at the hospital as my TSH was 1.4 and that was normal. I then asked him about the goitre which had been investigated and dismissed as one of those things, other symptoms, fatigue, brain fog, constipation, extremely cold, weight gain and he said it could be menopause. I then challenged him with isnt high cholesterol also a symptom of hypothyroid or Hashimoto's? UPshot of it is that I have to have yet another blood test this week and he is once again asking for T3 and T4 to be done. Has anyone else experienced the blood testing lab not carrying out the test that the doctor has asked for?
