In wk 13 of tx, have rec'd all 12 wk labs w/exception of VL... see Dr. next week. Several areas of concern, Results are as follows:
WBC 1.9 L 3.8-10.8 thou
RBC 2.73L 3.8-5.10 mill
HGB 9.9 L 11.7-15.5g/dL
HCT 28.9L 35.0-45.0%
PLT 55 L 140-400 thou/uL
ANC 806L 1500-7800 cells/uL
Creatine 0.87 0.60-1.10 mg/dL
Bil,Tot 0.8 0.2-1.2 mg/dL
AST 88 H
ALT 58 H
** TSH 48.93 H 0.40-4.50 @8wks 3.24, mid 3rd wk <0.01 L
Cardiologist explained that <0.01 thryoid was actually overworking to produce TSH.
Explained my symptoms closely related to panic attack. He and Internist agreed that
dosage should be reduced, and that Thyroid screenings should include T3, Total and T4, FREE. These didn't get run for wk 12, Nurse called, STOP Armour, See Endocronologist. So More labs on Mon., then to DRs.
NY Girl has really been helpful on the thyroid issues assoc'd with tx...very confusing to me, as the meaning of these results appears to be opposite of what the labs reveal. I have been on Armour Thyroid for years for Hypo/low thyroidism. Have I now gone into HYPER mode or will I not know conclusively until the other thyroid tests come in? My BP has been up and I have been symptomic of taking too much thyroid med.
JmJm expressed difficulty get thyroid stabilized, I believe, esp. with Armour thyroid.
Thank you for you input..or helpful articles.
Blessings to all,
