I always get my NHS bloods done before 9am, after fasting and no levo that morning.
Have shelled out for a nurse to come tomorrow as doing the Medichecks Ultra Vit test and find it hard to fill two vials of blood. I’m slightly furious that I was persuaded to accept a 9.30am appointment (the company that supply the nurse said they’d checked with Medichecks and that I didn’t need a particularly early appointment as long as it was sometime in the morning.) Their email, which somehow I missed, states she will arrive between 9.30 and 10.30.
I’m not bothered about the TSH result being low as it will be suppressed anyway. I’m very bothered about getting a true picture of whether I convert T4 to T3 well enough though. I’ve been working towards this test for months, tweaking vitamins and diet etc, as I need to decide whether it’s crunch time re trying the addition of T3. I can’t afford to do the whole test again with the nurse part too.
Will a 9.30-10.30am appointment give me an accurate picture re T4 and T3? I’m delaying taking this morning’s levo of 125mcg until 9.30am.
