Re: [IP] Thyroid testing



<< Hi I need some more information about the various thyroid tests.  I have 
had 
several done and they never show anything but my "senses" tell me other wise. 
 What are the specific tests I should be asking my dr about?
Thank you all so much in advance.

Hi Jeanne,

I highly recommend that you do some reading at about.thyroid.com and also at 
medicinenet.com.  About.thyroid.com is written by a thyroid patient and has a 
lot of information on all the different types of tests you should request 
(TSH does not tell the whole story for many people).  Medicinenet.com is 
written by board-certified physicians and I've also found great info there.

The best way to get what you need is to be armed with information.  My doctor 
didn't listen to me, either.  I had to keep track of my own results and go 
surfing the Web to find supporting evidence that would explain my atypical 
results.  I'm now on Unithroid.

good luck,
Leeann
