Ensure you get any blood drawn for a TSH test as early in the day as possible - I aim for 08:00 at the local hospital. TSH is usually higher then than any later time in the day.

Go with a open mind and don't go in convinced they are not going to help you..I read many horror stories and was convinced I would be pushed aside and left..I wasn't ...my endo was great as he went by my symptoms and not my blood tests..If he is any good yours will do the same :) Gp's are the jack of all trades and master of none..so wait until you see your endo before panicking :)
