    Do I have the right blood tests? Do I need to add to this list?

    Primal Fuel
    I have an appointment with my doctor tonight. I am expecting to get a prescription for blood work so we can get to the bottom of why my hair is falling out. I've lost 1/2 the hair on my head in the past 5 months.

    I am going to ask that she request a full thyroid panel, iron, ferritin, and vitamin D.

    Is there anything that I am missing that I should request?

    Define a full thyroid panel.

    Some panels include stuff like T3 uptake, Total T4, etc, but not what you NEED-which is

    TSH
    Free T3
    Free T4
    Reverse T3
    Anti-TPO
    Anti-TBG
    Ferritin
    B12
    25(OH)Vitamin D
