I have my nhs endo appointment on 22nd of this month, i have learned so much since last time i went to him and i have done loads of private blood testing prior to this appointment i was just wondering if anyone can help me on what to say to him.
My tsh within a month has gone from 1.73-2.84, although my ft4 is in range its not in the optimal range and my saliva cortisol was high while my dhea is low, i think i mainly need help on these two on what this could mean!
I have told my endo time and time again that i have many symptoms but they shrug me of and tell me my tsh is good and its the golden standard test (i now know different), the tsh test result of 2.84 was done privately, surely i have proof that my tsh is rising?
How can i pull him on optimal levels, basically i just need a lil bit of help on how to pull him on all this and the best way to do so, i don't want to keep leaving the endo wishing i had said more, i also tell them of my swallowing problems and he/she tells me there is no way my nodule can be doing this, im hoping to have my active b12 results next week to also shed more light!
My blood tests i had last august shows that maybe by now i can have some iron deficiency but the gp has left it as that and hasn't said nothing else about being redone again!
Im having a 24 hour heart monitor put on, im also seeing dr peatfield on the 24th, the thing is i just want my endo to listen to me too, they seem to only worry about if my nodule has turned to cancer!
I would be very appreciative if anyone can help me on what is the best way to approach my nhs endo.
many thanks xx
