Dr. appt. next week, need advice
 
I have a doctor appt. next Tuesday at 7:45 a.m. I'm getting the full thyroid panel (or at least hope to talk the doctor into it). She put me on 50 mcg levothyroxine with just knowing the TSH in July. I am doing better, but have days where my brain is just not altogether and sometimes am still quite tired for no apparent reason. Anyway, I would feel better if she would have ordered the full test then.

I need to know if I should postpone my Levothyroxine dosage that morning? I don't want it to give a "false reading" on the test. I really don't know if I should fast either. Can anyone help? Thank you!!

I would take your thyroid medication after your appointment, and you do not need to fast for thyroid levels.
