The online kits are a bit too pricy for me to buy. Is there any way I can get my stubborn GP to test for T3, fT3, fT4, TgAb and TPO?
My GP insists that TSH and T4 are all that need to be screened/monitored and I've never actually been diagnosed with Hashimoto's etc. The moment my thyroid goiter and cysts appeared, and that was over 10 years ago when the left side had to be cut out as cancer preventative at 16. The same issue has cpme back as of last year on my remaining right half of my thyroid.
My vitamin and minerals have never been checked besides total iron count in all those years either.
My hospital doesn't test outside of TSH and T4 as well.
