Hi everyone! Hope you're having a happy, joyous holiday season.
I have a bit of a complex problem going on and I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me out. I should preface this by saying I do not have a diagnosed thyroid condition. Please let me know if this is not an appropriate location for this post, you all just seem to have incredible knowledge. I am seeing an endocrinologist because I was referred there after my GP thought it was an issue with my thyroid. I saw the endocrinologist back in August 2016 and he booked a follow up for me - it is this coming week. I was hoping you guys could give me some ideas/questions that are important to ask?
My symptoms include rapid weight loss (sometimes coupled with a decrease in appetite), hair loss, fatigue, scalloped tongue, and GI irregularity.
Again, all my thyroid levels were presumably normal. I have a low ferritin and an elevated DHEA-S level, but no action has been pursued.
I'm not entirely sure what to expect from this appointment, as I still do not have a definitive answer. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
Thank you, I am so grateful for each and every one of you. Best wishes for the New Year.
