Well, it's me again!! This time youngest daughter (the other one that's self medicating) had her docs appointment. Her words are "Pompous arrogant and convinced there's nothing wrong with me". She says she had to threaten to go private before he would order a blood test. He said she should be off levothyroxine for two months to get an accurate test result. Then stated that thyroxine doesn't affect antibodies, also said the lab won't test for antibodies if the TSH is normal, so she said "so they don't do what you ask them to do?" then he said they will probably do it if he requested it. So she said "request it then!" she was well annoyed. We now await the results. This is in Surrey, UK
