Hi all, I'm currently undergoing tests to determine what's up with me. My TSH is normal but my FT3 and FT4 are very low. My doc has spoken to an endocrinologist who has recommended a full pituitary blood test which I'm having Friday at 9am. Unfortunately all I got was a voicemail from my doc telling me this and I'm not sure how to prepare for this. I will call the surgery tomorrow to ask but it may take a few days to get hold of the doc so am wondering if anyone here knows the following:
- should I fast for the test?
- should I stop taking the folic acid tablets I'm taking (I have folic acid/iron deficiency)?
- should I stop taking the iron tablets?
- I self medicate with a natural progesterone/oestrogen cream. Should I stop using that?
- anything else?
Thanks in advance!
