What testing to ask NHS rheumatologist for?

    Hi Guys

    I am seeing an NHS rheumatologist next week, not for ME reasons, but to explore the possibility of raloxifene as a chemopreventation. The genetics clinic estimated my life time risk of breast cancer as 50%. I also have osteoporosis, and a kidney disorder called medullary sponge kidney.
    I have never had any effective help within the NHS for ME, beyond basic bloods and diagnosis. I function now, imperfectly, with the patch-up of liothyronnine and certain abx.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on tests re immunity and autoimmunity that I might ask for?

    Thanks in advance for any replies,

    Sian
