O.K, I'm not sure if going to the Endocrinologist was a good idea...it has left me with more questions than answers and a 'Massive' invoice to boot. Aside from cost, she took a look at my medichecks report, after I made it VERY CLEAR that I came off my T4 for a number of weeks beforehand. She wanted to do the following tests last night, bearing in mind that I have been back on the full dose (200mcg) of T4 for four weeks only and should wait for at least 10-12 weeks before testing again.
FBC and Differential, Folate, Free T4, TSH, blood cortisol, Urea & Electrolytes, Bone Profile, CRP, TTG.
I have very recently started taking D3 spray and taking a vitamin B complex and vitamin K. The only thing missing is Ferritin supplements.
I am aware that I initially shot myself in the foot by not taking the T4 for weeks before doing private blood tests, so can we get past that please...
I don't know if I should do the tests or not as she seems convinced that I am being under dosed with T4 at 200mcg a day.
I'm more confused than ever except to say, I'm going to concentrate on vitamins before retesting the thyroid panel.
