What should I ask for when I get my thyroid checked?
I am going to the doctor next week to get my thyroid checked. It was normal one year ago, but my symptoms are much worse now.
I know I should ask for T3 and T4 levels to be checked, but is there anything else I should know? My dad (who is hyperthyroid) said something about the thyroid blood test has to be done separate from other blood tests in order to be accurate... anyone know if this is true?
Also, if anyone knows of any other tests to ask for in case it isn't my thyroid, I'd appreciate hearing from you.
