I just tested positive for this, and have the other abnormal results: TSH 59.74, T4 Free low (0.7); ALT 49; Creatinine 1.02; VWF RISTOCETIN CO-FACTOR of 244 and a CGA:vWf of 209. I'm 61, do not smoke or drink alcohol. What does all this mean in combination? Is a family physician (internal medicine) usually a sufficient treatment provider for this, or should I see an endocrinologist or genetic counselor? I have no children. My mother had Hodgkins disease diagnosed when she was five months pregnant with me and died 5 years later, so I don't know much about her medical history. I'm 3 years s/p gastric bypass and take Opti-Source multivitamins.
