Battling on with the GP. Have a Thyroid Ultrasound next week for a Goitre. Constantly heavy and cloudy head. Random red marks appear on my hands. I have bone pain in hands, muscle cramps in calves. My Mum is Hyperthyroid. Also frightening myself with Google as to why Protein and Albumin levels can be elevated :-( this is the first lot of blood tests that have come back with slight elevations on those.

Thank You

Don't frighten yourself about the elevated levels. It may be due to the stresses on your body caused by your rising calcium and PTH.


Thank you. It's hard not to frighten yourself with google these days. I've had nearly 8 months worth of blood tests and my FBC have never been abnormal. It's always been the elevated calcium and the forever changing PTH, the last result being nearly at the end of the range. I was turned away but one Endocrinologist as being "normal" but finally managed to see a different GP and persuade another referral. Before my Mum was diagnosed with Hyperthryroidism her blood tests were all over the place and worrying but turned out her Thyroid was the cause. The GP wasn't concerned with my results but having been ignored by them for so long it's hard to put trust in them sometimes.


Your albumin and protein are so nearly in normal range i wouldn't worry about them, very much doubt any doctor would give them a second look. Your last tsh and t4 are pretty much perfect.
