I told my doc (family) I wanted a thyroid test.
T3 & T4 to check up on my kind of elevated TSH (4.4)
He said he would only do a Ultra sensitive TSH,
T4, and Free T4.
He said NO NEED for T3. He actually went on to say that a T3 request would cuase problems with my insurance because it was not warranted.
Only T4 test were relevant for elevated TSH. ???
Is he right ??? Or should I find another Doc before I have the blood drawn.
I keep telling him I wanted to see the complete thyroid profile, but he would not budge on the issue.
