Hi..I have not heard of an infection, maybe he meant an inflammation that happens with Hashimoto disease..Has he done a antibody test to check for this, Also have you had a scan if you feel a lump, this could be a goiter..Dawn
Thanks Dawn. It's hard to explain. It's not a physical lump you can feel. It's more of a sensation of a lump in my throat. Sometimes it feels a little constricted.
He didn't say anything about Hashimotos. I would assume if he checked for the Graves he would have checked for all things. I can't really tell by looking at the blood tests as they're all letters and numbers, etc. I don't even know what half of them stand for!
He believes I have infection going on in my body because of the way the blood tests turned out. He said my adrenals are not working as well as they should. My protein is low, calcium is low, liver is sluggish, Hemoglobin is a little elevated and T3 and T4 is high. I don't understand any of this. I hope I'm saying all of this right. He did a lot of testing!
