Had a telephone consultation with my GP yesterday (couldn't get a regular appointment) to request vitamin and mineral tests and was told that there is no NHS test available!! I explained to him that I was still feeling quite poorly and have had to take some more time off work (not that he cared) his response was that as I have just had a dose increase to 75mcg of levo only 2 weeks ago and my TSH is still above range 6.58 mU/L (0.38 - 5.33) so it's to be expected until TSH is in range I told him I understood that but wanted to try and help myself to feel better and that I thought supplements would help but needed tests to determine which ones he dismissed this by saying get some OTC multivitamins it won't hurt!!! Yes but which ones!!!
I also asked him about my raised thyroid peroxidase antibodies and if that meant I had autoimmune thyroid disease ( 31/5/17 641 IU/ml <50) and was told that was not significant and we need to get TSH in range and will retest TSH in September!!
Pretty pointless phone call really I would swear but I'm too polite!
Anyway rant over my question is
Can anyone recommend the best private blood test to buy to check my vitamins and minerals as I do want to try supplements but am cautious till I know which ones I need
I am desperate to feel better and get back to work as I have an interview in 3 weeks for a really good promotion but at the moment I can't get through a day let alone an interview!
