What Blood Work Should I Ask My Doctor For.

What Blood Work Should I Ask My Doctor For.

I'm going to try to see my doctor today about my bad wrist & also to have my bloods done. I'm going to ask her about thyroids and to see if I have low iron levels as I have been feeling really tired shake headachey ect. Is there anything else i should ask her to check that could be causing this? Thanks.

Was your TSH close to 1? Because the range of normal for that measure is crazy wide and doesn't mean you shouldn't get medical attention IMO
