Thyroid testing

Just got home from my appointment. I've noticed my hair falling out in clumps, my ends of my eyebrows are gone as is the hair from my arms. I asked my dr to check my thyroid - and he is. They took 6 vials of blood. He told me they will test THS, free 4 & free 3. If my levels are low they will test for antibodies.

Since they took 6 vials, are they testing anything else besides your thyroid? I am glad you are getting the bloodwork for that done, and it looks like he knows what to test.

I'm also diabetic - he is checking my A1C, my lipids ( including the size ), my iron (it was low at the beginning of the month) and I'm not sure what else.

Ok, that makes sense! The hair falling out, I hate that part. I am impressed that he did the right tests.

Thanks! When I asked Bout the thyroid antibodies test the dr said that they would test that if the other tests indicated a thyroid issue.
