How do I get my vitamin levels, bloodwork, and testosterone checked regularly without arguing with my doctor?

But then why can I check my blood pressure at the chemist, or check my vision at the ENT if I think my eyesight is fine, or have a dermatologist to look at the same freckle they’ve looked at last time? Why do unspecialised GPs draw the high horse?

I wasn’t feeling any pain or noticing issues, but was told at my last follow-up appointment to the one where my pathology reflected excessive liver enzyme levels, if my AST count was any higher 2 days later I’d have to have been flown to the city for a NAFLD and cirrhosis prevention plan. How am I POSSIBLY meant to know if I have something clinically indicated before it’s too late if I have to fight to diagnose asymptomatic liver inflammation?
