Grrrr I got a phone call last week from drs receptionist to tell me that my yearly blood test was late so duly made my app. It was today and the nurse said its your thyroid bloods and I said yes. What are you testing and she just said your thyroid. Me now thinking she really doesn't know so said is it my tsh and yes was the reply. Is that all yes says she. What about my t3 as that is the medication I am on. Went to find out and came back and said that's fine . T3 and TSH. So that is all I have had done. It must have been the doctor who told her what to take blood for as she was a healthcare assistant and couldn't make that decision herself. Nothing against HCA's as I am one myself. Anyway just thought I would let you know.
