Welcome to our forum and I am very sorry you are suffering.

Do you have a copy of your blood test results which you can post, with the ranges, and members can respond to them.

Blood tests to be recommended are TSH, T3, T4, Free T4, Free T3 and thyroid antibodies.

In UK they don't usually do all of these but we have private labs which will do all of these and they are home pin-prick tests and make sure you are well hydrated a few days before and blood draw should be at the very earliest and a gap of 24 hours between last dose of levothyroxine and the test and take it afterwards.

Thyroiduk.org.uk have a list of good endocrinologists and if you email Dionne at Thyroiduk she will send you information. Email is


Just in case, this is details of the two private labs.

Blue Horizon and Medichecks do home pin-prick tests.


Your GP should test B12, Vit D, iron, ferritin and folate.

Always get a print-out of your blood test results for your own records and you can post if you would like members to comment upon them.

Hi dear Shaws, thank you very much for your answer,all that blood test ,you all ready write down for me are fine,but I have all hypersimtopm thyroid,after 10 times in emergency hospital they give me appoint the for endocrinologist and I don’t know what blood test more I have to do for thyroid,because a friend of mine years was in very bad condition,and all doctors said you anxious and depress...because this basic blood test was fine for him as well,after few years was a doctor who did more blood test than usual and yes... his problem was thyroid .

Fine is an opinion, not a diagnosis. And doctor's opinions are very, very often wrong. Give us the numbers and we'll tell you if they are fine or not - results and ranges. :)
