Hi everyone, I would be grateful if anyone can advise. I'm a 46 yr old woman and have suffered from heavy hair loss from my brows and scalp for 5/4 years. I had a SHBG test back in 2015 which was normal but low at 43 range up to 145. I've recently read that this can cause high levels of unbound testosterone.
I've asked for this test to be done again but the NHS lab have refused to do this several times now stating that my androgen and testosterone levels are normal 1.6 range 0.05 - 2.6.However the NHS doesn't test for free testosterone.
The labs refusal to carry out this test is in my opinion stopping medicine and treatment and my condition is becoming progressively worse.
The NHS have also declined to add private blood tests to my medical records.
I've contacted a solicitor but had no response so I really am in a bad place
Is there anything I can do to jolt the NHS to act in my interest. Would anyone know if there medicine available to help treat low SHBG.
