Well, went for the usual yearly bloods and after they had been drawn I asked for my blood pressure to be checked, Resulting in an immediate appointment with the doctor for stage 3 hypertension.
First question after looking at tubby old me, do you exercise much .... Sunday 5 miles off road mountain biking, Tuesday 30 lengths swimming, Thursday walking 1 mile.. ha!
With the knowledge gained from this site I was able to ask loads of questions, is high bp not a sign of under treated hypothyroidism, what my T3 like (never been checked) vit d levels etc.
So full range of bloods to be checked.
Thanks for giving me the confidence to speak up whereas before I have been too emotional to say anything and usually leave the docs in tears.
