GP has referred me to endoc because of my ongoing fatigue, weakness, struggle to lose weight and because she doesnt understand the low saliva cortisol results i got with medichecks where medichecks mentioned addisons.
Appointment is August at BRI, Bristol.
i have never seen an endoc dr and i have a lot of hypothyroid symptons and dont want to waste this opportunity to have everything checked.
No one has ever looked at my neck/thyroid. Is this something they should do??
Personally i would like my saliva cortisol repeated on NHS (running out of money for medichecks tests) but is this even something they might do?
Or will they just check serum cortisol and then maybe ACTH stimulation test?
