Just a quick question. I’m about to receive some results of vit D, b12, ferritin and folate tests and I think bone density?
I am autoimmune hypothyroid and have PCOS but have a lot of b12 and vitamin defiencies. I was severely vit D deficient in past. My tsh is creeping up again very quickly but of course T3 not being tested.
So my Q- when I speak to the doctor about the results- should I push for endocrinologist referral? Or is it just not worth the fight? Will I be better just self managing if no further treatment is offered?
I know a lot of people will tell me to run for the hills (!) 😂 but is it still worth pursuing a referral at least? Will the endo do at least some more testing or be even vaguely useful?
I suppose it depends on how good the endo is but in general- were there any benefits?
Like maybe they will look at the different autoimmune conditions and sort of look for links?? (Too hopeful? )
If deemed completely useless then I’d rather pick my battles with my Gp and not push for referral at this stage. I’d rather keep him on board for other queries!
Any advice, for or against, appreciated ☺️ TIA
