    Thyroid Tests

    Has anyone had any luck getting a regular doctor to order Free T-3 and 4 tests, like at Kaiser? I don't know how to find a good neuropathist, or if I can afford one. But I just have to find out if this is a thyroid problem that can be treated with NTH!

    Kitty, any physician when he does a thyroid panel will look for the free T3 not sure of T4 but you can ask. There is nothing special in having a thyroid assessment.

    Good luck. I am thinking it is time for my labs to be checked as well...............Nancy B

    They never charge for T3, they would just diagnose it and if you suffer from thyroid then they will recommend some great physician.
