Hi again everyone,
I have some further test results which I hope you would be able to advise me on. Apparently the ones that were lacking from last time (thyroid antibodies, free t3, b12 and iron) were just delayed.
I did not manage to obtain a copy of my results for those, but when I spoke with the doctor he said the thyroid antibodies were normal so in their opinion it is unlikely that I have Hashi's. HOWEVER, I am unsure if they did both antibodies tests though, or what my doctor's understanding of 'normal' is. They said that my b12 was super elevated, and I am still anemic. The anemia thing worries me because I've been taking 150% RDA serum ferritin daily for weeks. My free t3 was still unavailable, but I'm seeing him tomorrow and it should be ready by then.
My tests from a private lab came back a few days ago, with their own doctor's notes:
REVERSE T3: 21.5 (11-32)
FOLLICLE STIM. HORMONE: 5.1
TESTOSTERONE: 0.5 (0-1.8)
SEX HORMONE BINDING GLOB: 69 (20-122)
17-BETA OESTRADIOL: 110
According to their doctor these are normal. Again, whether that means perfectly fine or not is unclear. The worrying ones are below:
ALDOSTERONE: 105 (111-860)
RENIN: 6:30 (1.68-27.7)
The doctor's notes say low aldosterone and renin could be indicative of hypopituitary with secondary Addisson's. They suggest I go for a synacthen test, an ACTH test, and various others.
Might anyone else be able to offer any further suggestions or advice? If so, thanks in advance!
