Yes, you can order your own bloodwork online, print out the orders, and then take them to a designated local lab (often Lab Corp) to do the blood draw. Typically you get your results by email. I do this to manage mine and two of my kids' thyroid disease, because our stupid doctors often won't order the labs we feel we need to see what's really going on, and/or our insurance won't let us check certain numbers because it's "too soon." If you're checking thyroid numbers in particular, go here and get some special deals: Recommended Labwork | Stop The Thyroid Madness. Scroll down, and you'll see several online providers. You'll pay by credit card online, and when you get to the blood draw place they shouldn't charge you anything there. Good luck!
