A blood test is actually a good idea so you know where you are at. I can understand self dosing of supplements if your doctor simply blows you off and says there's nothing wrong, yet you know for sure what is wrong.

Self medicating without ever even having had a blood test isn't a good idea as so many symptoms overlap across quite a few illnesses. Eg: in my case, i was chronically tired and thought it was my anemia, my iron rose and i was still tired. Later i found out i had a thyroid condition and felt my tiredness was due to that. In the end my tiredness was related to my poor adrenal function. Finally adrenal meds fixed the chronic tiredness.

This is why a blood test is a good idea to have first. You need to know where you stand and what is affecting you.
