Thyroid Ultrasound Results
My ultrasound results were:The thyroid is diffusely heterogeneous in echotexture with the right thyroid lobe measuring 4.4 cm in length x 1.5 cm AP x 1.3 cm in width and the left thyroid lobe measuring 4.6 x 1.5 x 1.6 cm respectively.  No focal lesions are identified.  The isthmus is mildly thickened and measures 3 mm AP.  The thyroid gland is mildly hyperemic.
My TSH was .38 then three weeks later it was 4.45.  (Normals .34-4.82)  This is all while on levothyroxine.  Thyroperoxidase Ab was 33(H)  (Normals showed 0-20)
They keep running metabolic panels but do nothing with the results. The abnormals are as follows:
                                                     Normals
Alanine Aminotrandferase 27(L)        30-65
aspartate aminotransferase 11(L)      15-37
Protein 8.6(H)                                  6.4-8.2
Sodium 134(L)                                136-145
Anion Gap 3(L)                               7-16
and MPV 7.3(L)                               7.4-10.4


Any help?  Any would be nice it's more than I get from the VA!

Alanine Aminotrandferase  is liver enzymes.

aspartate aminotransferase  is normally found in red blood cells, liver, heart, muscle tissue, pancreas, and kidneys.

Anion Gap is electrolytes...you are dehydrated.

MPV is platelet values...you are anaemic or close to it.

And as you know your antibodies are active.

Hope that helps a bit
