Hi! I received my results from Medichecks today with notes saying my TSH is high and FT4 is low which suggests my levo dose needs increasing. I then spoke to a GP on the phone and she said they are not allowed to accept private test results. She also said she could request a repeated test on NHS for me but even if the results are the same as from Medichecks she won't increase my dose as results are within range/almost within range. My results are:
TSH 3.76 [0.27 - 4.20]
FT4 11.90 [12.00 - 22.00]
FT3 4.68 [3.10-6.80]
Thyroglobulin ab 32.400 [0.00 - 115.00]
Thyroid peroxidase ab 509 [0.00 - 34.00]
I'm on 75 mcg levothyroxine.
Having read many posts here I can see that my results are not normal and I'm undermedicated and I'm not feeling well.
Is this true that NHS doctors are not allowed to accept private test results? Why is that?
