Re: A caution about mail order thyroid tests
The finger stick testing is a direct testing method that has no redundant accuracy checks in place.. it is very biased and loaded with error. Your MD's test is correct. Go with that one. I contemplated the online TSH tests my self.. but depending on the method of storage and age of the testing device plus the fact there is already a 20% deviation inherent in that test.. much prefered the in house analysis of my TSH.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
