should i see endo for all or do blue horizon tests and see dr.peatfield?

morning ali, i made a couple of posts yesterday and intend too seek my own healthcare as my confidence here isn't good if you see other posts.

question is ? if my understanding is correct an endocrinologist would see to bloods and whole aspect and dr.peatfield doesn't do bloods so i would need to arrange my own,hope thats correct as I've never ben here before . glad of what you feel /suggest i do next.

thanks in advance

Paul1108,

The cost of any tests the private endocrinologist requires will be in addition to the consultation fee you are charged.

Paul1108,

It may be better to ask the endo or Dr. P what tests they would like to see before you book a consultation with them.

I would get thyroid plus eleven test done

Then supplement any vitamins (vit D, folate, ferritin and b12) that need improving. Ask on here advice on what & how much

If TSH is high, t4 low take results to local GP and ask for raise in Levo - if they won't get more Levo online

antibodies - go gluten free and take selenium supplement

Endocrinologists very unlikely to recognise vitamin aspects
