My first meeting with an Endo was today. A small man whose English wasn't too bad but required very careful listening. He said that my symptoms were suggestive of hyoid despite the TSH of 2.6... And he actually said I could be hypo despite that figure which is a better response than I've read of some people having!!!
He didn't seem to want me to talk and his manner was not the best but he said he wasn't going to just test for thyroid but all the hormonal conditions that that could cause the symptoms and has ordered bloods to be done as near 9 am as possible for
Can't read first word Gestiadol/ bestiadol ? Testosterone. TPO antibodies, FT3, FT4,TSH, IgF, GH , SHBG, LH, FSH, DHEAS ( might be DHLAS) and cortisol.
Then I have to do two 24 hr urine tests, a couple of days apart for cortisol. renal and lipids too.
He says it will take a month to get all the results back so I have another appt in 6 weeks time.
He seemed determined to get to the bottom of my symptoms so I guess has what is most important...do these tests sound about right?
Look fwd to hearing your opinions
