Blood test codes

Following on my private tests from Blue Horizon, I wrote to the GP who had been the most helpful and enclosed a copy asking for her opinion/advice. She set up a telephone call and we had a chat and I explained why I'd had the tests done. She suggested that I have more blood tested to check my Ferritin again and I collected a form. Most of the codes I recognised but a few I didn't and extensive googling hasn't revealed what they might be. If anyone can shed a light on them I'd be grateful:

C, E, LIPNF, TVD.

Despite seeing my results she is still only asking for TFT and FT3.

Espeegee,

TFT usually includes TSH and FT4 and FT3 has been ordered separately. Other than thyroid peroxidase antibodies there's nothing else thyroid wise to be ordered in primary care.

I have no idea what the blood tests are. I suspect they are abbreviated codes agreed between your practice and the lab.

Thanks for explaining Clutter. Guess I'll just have to wait and see.
