Private blood results

So this week I got my private blood tests back. I had ultravit rt3. Indicates TSH at upper end of normal. This higher than I normally am. ft3/rt3 ratio low suggesting not getting enough ft3. Says may not get advice through conventional channels about this folate low b12 low. Not sure what to do. Have appointment with my endo end of Feb. Do I wait to see her and visit gp in meantime and see what he says? He wouldn't do these bloods said were unnecessary and that my symptoms were menopause and I should go on HRT

RT. Not likely to do that when had cancer!!! Thinks I should still seriously consider it!!!! Or do I go see private consultant and discuss NDT?

Need the ranges

But TSH looks too high, FT3 too low

B12 looks very low

Vitamin D better nearer 100nmol
