After some great advice on here I paid to have medichecks tests done after I had received a low Free T4 blood result. I ordered the full thyroid and T3 tests. Although my Free T4 is still out of range (too low) medichecks reported that the results are normal and no further action needed.
I had an email from them this morning saying they were unable to do my T3 test and would I like a repeat test sent. I thought Id had the T3 checked but they told me I only had Free T3 checked and not T3. Can anyone explain the difference please?
Also I went to see my GP who refused to do anything regarding my low Free T4. A couple of days after I found out that a cousin of mine had recently been prescribed thyroxine and we have quite a history of thyroid problems in our family.
I am going to pursue this further and request some sort of treatment for the low Free T4. Wish me luck! My cousin lives 20 minutes down the road and was prescribed medication based on her symptoms and not blood results! It's madness!
