Private Blood Testing

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, I am a hypothyroid patient on levothyroxine and also a history of high cholesterol and iron deficiency anaemia. I am interested in finding out my Free T3 level and also having a check up on my iron levels, sugar levels and cholesterol. My GP will not do some of these, unfortunately, has anyone ever tried to have private blood tests done? I have seen a few providers but not sure if they are value for money. I'm not interested in postal kits, I tried that for my TSH and was completely wrong! I have seen Medicheks and Blue Horizon but have just received a discount code for a company called Werlabs. Has anyone ever gone down this route? Many thanks.
