Just come home from asking my GP for an annual thyroid blood test. Got the impression I could have the test but it's not necessary! I gave him my list of tests I would like done and he noticed the antibodies. Why did I want those tested so I explained that left untreated they would destroy the thyroid and as I'd been gluten free for 2 years I would like to see that they had gone down/disappeared. He more or less rubbished that and everything else I said. So I have a blood test appointment but have no idea what for!
