Called endo and she honored my request for an Ft3 test so I got it done yesterday and hope to get a better picture of t3 situation.
I havent recently seen the functional med doc and have stopped all supplements due to my stomach issues. I could see there was quite a difference, infact my b12 is still up in the 600s and I haven’t taken and b12 supplements in about a week. Not to mention I felt more energy. However the stomach problems need to be addressed and so once this is done we will decde what to do and move on.
Will be seeing the gastro doc soon to yet the results of upper gi as well as the endo. I recently got other tests done and have a couple questions. Previously about a year ago , I got an ANA test done and it came up negative. During that time I had already been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and even further back was diagnosed with Graves (before hypo) so I am curious if anyone has had a similar experience or if they know why this might have happened? I have heard they are not very sensitive. The results i got back yesterday were positive ANA speckled, the ratio was 1:80 range <1:40. So from reading up I am told the higher number you have the more antinuclear antibodies youhave, so my aren’t very much. These must bot he the same as TPO and TG I am assuming? TPO and TG attack thyroid tissue and the ANA attack nucleus. My other question is does anyone know whether by fixing you deficiences and eliminating food allergies that stimulate attack etc. heal the gut, Should call off the immune system correct? This is what I was thinking would happen when I started the protocol with the functional med doc. Would this still happen if you have fixed these things?
So I am curious that by stopping the protocol from my stomach issues and eating gluten (mild IGG allergy) again maybe once every two weeks or triggered an attack thus developing another disease? Or perhaps its been there the whole time and didnt know it? I feel like I’ve not come up with many answers from my choices. Thank you for reading my rant!
