I'm going to see a new doctor for my hypothyroidism, and would like to go in suggesting what tests I would like and be able to say why I need them in an intelligent fashion. My last doctor refused to do any tests but TSH. So, I have a fresh start. I'm thinking TSH, Free T3 and Free T4. How should I explain the reasons I need the T3 and T4? Also, any other tests I should request? Thanks!
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt
