NDT and Thyroglobulin Test

Hello,

So I am supposed to have a Thyroglobulin test every so often; it is used as a 'cancer marker'. At my last appointment, my consultant had wanted to do one, but I had recently started on NDT and I understand that this can affect the result and give a false positive. That said, I have also read that this false positives only occurs in a small percentage of case for people on NDT.

Anyway, I didn't have the test.

Does anyone have a conclusive answer to this or any advice regarding this. I did offer to go back onto Thryoxine for 6 weeks before my next consult (so that they could do this test), but I don't really want to and maybe it's unnecessary anyway?

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Melissa
