I have finally been referred to an Endo at Cedar Centre In Guildford, by a GP who says she does not recognise me as hypothyroid through my private diagnoses. So this appointment is to hopefully get the NHS to accept me as Hypothyroid.
I will need to get bloods done a week before my appointment and on the day they will do an ultrasound and FNA. I currently take 3 grains of ndt and 75mcg ot T3 in two split doses.
The blood test they have requested is for:
Free T4, Free T3, TSH, CA, PO4, B12, VIT D
So how long will I need to not take medication before my blood test? Also I am supplementing Vit D, how long will I need to stop to get an accurate reading in the blood?
I am also on a course of b12 injections which I cannot stop, so the blood test for b12 will not be accurate, is it worth mentioning that to them?
Any advice on how to make this as worthwhile visit as possible greatly appreciated!
