Are you in the UK? Is this an NHS doctor or private?

FT4 is not listed.

Ferritin isn't listed.

I am in Uk and it is an Nhs doctor. The previous doc sanctioned FT4 and Ferritin but this doc didn't.

What are THYROGLOBULIN tests for?

Thyroglobulin : labtestsonline.org/tests/th...

Thyroglobulin antibodies : labtestsonline.org.uk/tests... and click on "When is it requested"

GP or endo? I'd be very surprised if FT3 gets done, but if it is, and FT4 and Ferritin are added, that's a perfect set of tests.

GP sanctioned bloods but I have an endo appt at the beginning of Feb. I listed my previous results and ranges before starting levo which I clouded T4 and T3 and ferritin.
