I'm hypothyroid and I am on 100 mcg levothyroxine daily plus arimidex 3 times a week and .5 mcg lexapro daily. I am a 26 year old male. Recently I had bloodwork done and everything was fine except in my blood counts. The doctor said I could be bleeding somewhere, because it looks like i have anemia:
Is it possible it is just a fluke or could something be wrong with my digestive system. Just when I am starting to get my hormones in order this happens. My hemoglobin is normal on both tests. I eat low carb.
Did your doctor do an FOBT?(Fecal Occult Blood Test) If not, he certainly should have. I would recommend going back and getting that done. If he did and it was negative, you can look at other alternatives for your anemia.
