What should I be tested for?

Tommorow I am going to see my GP and I am going to request tests for my thyroid as I suspect I have Hypothyroidism or Hashimoto's thyroiditis. What tests should I ask be done? Also has anyone heard of something called Wilson's temperature syndrome and what do they know about it?

Re: What should I be tested for?

Ask for a TSH test. Thisis the basic thyroid testing test. Your nomal range should be between .3to3.0 Dont let them tell you you thyroid is normal if you have are not in these paramiters. Most labs have weird standards that are not up to date. And if they give you thyroid meds. Take Armour. It has no side effects. And works the best.
