Hi everyone. I just thought i would give you all a laugh for the day. My newest Endo i started seeing in early August said something i almost peed myself laughing at. I called and left a message to see if they would please call lab to request a free T3 test for me since i am now on cytomel generic now. I am going to be tested tomorrow morning my TSH, free T4, antibodies and Vit D and noticed that free T3 was not on it as i requested at my last appt. So, They call me back and my return message said that dr. told her to tell me she does not test for Free T3, Total 3 or reverse 3. She does not believe that free T3 is reliable. The results do not count for the bigger picture........ My face is beet red right now ladies and gentlemen. So i will get tested tomorrow, go see her in 8 days and then I will go to my GP and request the free T3, total 3 and reverse be done along my iron, folate, b12, ferritin also. I will keep my results as always. Eventhough they don't understand those tests or treat me for my hashi's or hypo, at least they will write the script so i can know for myself what i need. After all, I basically diagnosed myself, told them what kind of specialist i needed & then figured out i needed T3 also!!!! If i could write out a script and a lab order i wouldn't even waste my money and insurance on these peeps. I seen a meme on FB the other day i wanted to share with you all. It said "That moment when you look around and realize you know more about your disease than anyone else in the room" and the bottom read, "And you're at the drs. office" hahahahaha and the bottom says Thyroid disease!! True story for sure.
