New and would love some help please

Hi, I am new to this forum. I have had an under active thyroid for over 10 years and taking 100mg of levothyroxine. I still suffer many of the symptoms regardless of the medication and my GP will only test the TSH levels and not T3 or T4. I am gaining weight regardless of my exercise routine or diet and it is very frustrating.

Can anyone recommend where I can go to get a private blood test covering the full range required to understand properly what medication would be best for me? I live in the south west of England in Wiltshire.

Many thanks for any help or advice.

Welcome to the forum, AxeF.

Thyroid Check Plus 11 can be done as a home finger prick test. If you want rT3 tested you will need Thyroid Check Plus 12 and will need a phlebotomist to draw blood for you.



Many thanks, I will look into that now 😊
