You can ask your doctor to add a note when she tests you for your tsh etc. When I went for blood work there was a $75 charge for it as its sent to Toronto. Also look into T3 only therapy online as using it alone (Cytomel T3) can reduce your rT3 and you can give the info to your doc. I went on T3 only and stopped losing alot of hair, less naps, am going for short walks, eyebrows growing back and nodules gone off thyroid. And I have hashimotos. Doc couldn''t explain why it worked wanted me on synthroid I said no due to side effects. See what your doc says.

Your require a lab requistion

from either an MD or a Naturopath. Most MD's are not interested in testing anything other than TSH, which is unfortunate as TSH is not the complete picture of thyroid hormone levels, but if they will request it, it will be covered by Manitoba Health. If you need to get a ND (Naturopathic Physician) it will cost you for the appointment to consult him/her, and you will have to pay at the lab for the blood test as well. But, sometimes you do what you have to do.
