I had to go see my dr. today because of sever abdominal/back pain. Turns out i am severely constipated.....yikes....very painful.....
She finally talked about my lab work done last week. She thinks she has figured out my problem.
My TSH .05, but my T4 was 16.4,
my renin is 1.9 range .2-1.6
my glucose was 61 range 65-100
my albumin was 5.2 range 2.9 -5.0
my T3 was 91 range 90-200
I do take 125mcg of synthroid, she wanted to change my dosage to 100, but wants the endocrinologist i go see Friday make the call. She thinks now i am being over medicated again AND that is why the weight loss.
Man i hope a change in medication will fix me up.....by the way i had a TT back in 94, It took her 6 months to test the T3 and T4....But she is helping...
My question is what is the purpose of T4 for your body.
