I am so happy the dr agree to do my lab now instead of waiting next month.
If, I had not started these symptom, I would of waited. At least with the new lab work, it will have all the thyroids test instead of just the tsh.
I wish he would check my adrenal glands also.
He is also doing the full panel
glucose, chol, trig and vit d
I was told not to eat or drink anything after midnight before taking the blood work
I'm glad you came here - it does help to know that the things we experience are common.
Good news about new labs.
Yes, the full panel requires fasting but you can still take most of your meds and drink water without compromising the test results.
Some people take their thyroid meds before thyroid labs....some don't. The most important aspect about thyroid meds management is consistency.
So, if you get thyroid bloodwork before taking your meds, you should do that every time.
