FT4 and FT3 Thyroid Tests

I notice whenever my thyroid is tested I get the following error message on my lab report: “The FT4 and FT3 orders were cancelled as per BC Guidelines”. Does anyone (in BC, I suppose) have any explanation for this/know if this is important/have experience with getting your Endo to demand this test?

Generally they only run them when total t4 or Tsh are out of range. So what they do is order all of them and then cancel them based on the results of the total tests
