I'm new to this community and need advice as I'm at my word end.
I've been having 2 problems getting a doctor to explain in simple terms why my bloods are always out of range.
The latest being my TSH (16.70 november - 17.34 yesterday) Free TS4 (17,8 within range)
I was until November for approx 15yrs on 150mcg to 175mcg November then the latest 200mcg. The doctor said thyroid is function is normal but the extra thyroxine is for my pituitary gland as it is having to work harder so I'm assuming from this last result it's gotten even more need to work harder?
He wants me to follow up another blood test in 2 month, however the same bloods that came back also said my ferratin had also dropped for a second time so I need more iron medication.
I am also on vitamin D capsules and every CRP and ESR that comes back is elevated. This CRP came back at 31 (normal being 5)
I really concerned about the pituitary gland as my last 2 doctor visits my bp has been 179/95 and 180/98 and all I get is
"It is to he expected with you"
Why? I have chronic pancreatitis and lymphedema and pancreatic induced diabetes, raynauds phenomena and fibromyalgia and I've all of a sudden gotten psoriasis I've never had it before and I'm losing my hair.
I'm lost as I thought this would be the results and diagnosises to confirm Lupus SLE due to all co morbidities.
Can anyone give me any advice please.
My pancreas is a gland
My thyroid is a gland
My pituitary is a gland
I have diabetes
I feel all my glands are being attacked and the worse thing is my sister passed away of multiple organ failure at 41 without a diagnosis but she also had gland problems. Sorry this is a ling one I just want to give as much info as possible.
