Hoping I can have some help following on from my GP appointment today. I seem to have a lot of symptoms of being hypothyroid so asked if GP could do further tests for Thyroid not just TSH and T4 but he politely refused.
He said even if Thyroid antibodies were positive it would just mean I have a high risk of developing Thyroid problems in the future and don't actually have the disease. Is this correct.
My recent result is:
Serum TSH level 1.76 miu/L [0.35 - 4.94]
Serum free T4 level 10.6 pmol/L [9 - 19]
Result in March was:
Serum TSH level 1.82 miu/L [0.35 - 4.94]
Serum free T4 level 16 pmol/L [9 - 19]
Just wondering if someone could advise is GP correct about the antibodies and also is it worth me doing a private test.
Thanks in advance.
