A friend of mine has told me if I massage my finger to help the blood out my results could be in accurate so now I'm very worried.
I've used blue horizon and medicheck to get my results. The results were tsh climbed from 6.5 in January, 7.5 march and 9.28 May.
I am now on 50mg thyroxine but worried because I have to massage the finger to egg the blood out I've had wrong results. I don't squeeze it but I have to massage slightly higher up I don't massage on the site of the finger prick. My last test i had to stab myself 3 times to get it all out. I drink water and wash hands in warm water but I'm a slow bleeder.
My friend had hers done private through medicheck and her tsh was 5.8 I think then just had it done a few months later on nhs and was under 3 so she's now doubting private are accurate for her tsh to halv, which has worried me.
Any reassurance? I'm worried now my results all been wrong and maybe not even had a thyroid issue.
