tee13 The following tests give a full picture and can be done with a fingerprick test at home:

TSH

FT4

FT3

Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies

Thyroglobulin antibodies

Vit D

B12

Folate

Ferritin

Always have thyroid blood tests done as early as possible in the morning (no later than 8.30-9.00), fast overnight (you can have water), and leave off Levo for 24 hours (12 hours for T3 if taken).

There's no guarantee that an NHS doctor will accept them but it might be possible to use them as a lever for them to do their own.
