Ive just had another aaarrrhh session on the phone with the Biochemistry team of the NHS hospital where i went for my FT3/FT4 test this morning. The covering note on the form from my GP stating Hashimoto's, on Armour, needs regular FT3/FT4 check to adjust medication ,plus for F/U consultation with endochrine.
This was written in because 5 previous times the request had been ignored and only TSH done.
This is the second time i have rung direct to the biochemistry dept to be told i dont need them and even more alarming to be told T1 and T2 dont exist........heaven help us.
So, now im calming down and thinking positively, the best i can do is post out to ALL in the biochemistry the most up to date and concisely written piece on why we need FT3/FT4 and i am hoping you lovely folk can advise me please. I reckon a medically endorsed piece would probably be better recieved.
All good wishes, feeling calmer now, very glad you are here it is so so frustrating. G.
