I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism about 4 months ago by a wonderful trainee dr who has now left
I'd only had my TSH checked, not sure on the figure the first test, but the 2nd test was 12. I'm on 75mg of levo, trainee dr thought I would need to be on at least 100, but conseratorily put me on 50 to start with.
The recent dr gave me a new bloods form but it was only asking for TSH again. My cousin is a nurse and when I told her what bloods I should really have she said she would take them and complete the form and take them into work. This was last week. I asked for TSH, TT4, FT4, FT3, TPO, TgAb, B12, folate, ferritin and vitamin D.
I have received a letter from the Drs saying they want me to have a repeat bloods done in a week for serum u&e, but I didn't get this done in the first place!
They haven't mentioned any of the other tests or if I need to go in. What could be the reason they have asked for this test? Should I wait until I've done this and for these results until I contact the Drs and ask for the results of the other tests?
