Last week I had a thyroid blood test and I was told that in November '12 my TSH was 0.08 and the latest reading is 0.19 Despite the November low reading no changes were made. This time I have been asked to see the GP. I will see her on Thursday. I am so confused with the thyroid function. What do you think I should ask the GP when I see her and what should I insist on? I am on 125mg Levothyroxine and have been now for a number of years. Do you think I should be asking for an adrenal test? Could there be a malfunction there? What about Free T3 and Free T4 tests - are these included in the standard thyroid blood test? I would be very grateful if you could give me some pointers as I hate to think I'm being fobbed off by GPs. I have for a little while now been taking seaweed (kelp and bladderwrack) and I'm wondering whether that might have contributed to the latest result.
