is there anyway to request a complete thyroid panel blood test without a doctor's authorization and Medicaid will still cover it,

do they have any loophole site where you can place an order at any local blood drawn location (labcorp, computer, quest)?

my doctor and endocrinologist is only checking me for TSH and Free T4 and says that sufficient for testing and Everytime my TSh is between 1.9-2.0 levels on those

but I have chronic fatigue daily and never feel well rested after sleeping plus I struggle with crippling brain fog along with intermittent memory lapses

but doctors are sure my thyroid is still normal despite me feeling otherwise, Any input what I can do instead of switching doctors which is probably the easiest solution to that issue, Thanks!

**please remember to put space between your sentences .. thanks... many of us can't read it otherwise**
