I'm hoping someone w/knowledge in Hypo/hashi can take a look at my lab results? I'll post below. Can anyone suggest some additional testing I should ask my Doctor for? If so, the names of those labs would be very much appreciated!
I've had Hypo (& possibly adrenal issues?) for 2.5yrs now. I'm literally getting worse as time passes, but my labs always come back in range. I've changed my Primary & Endo several times. My current Endo specializes in thyroid/hormone disorders. My Doc does believe I more than likely have Hypo or maybe Hashi, but says I have to wait until blood test confirms it before I can get treatment. I had a goiter that was large enough to cause choking, but it went down a little in size in January. Then in May it has started swelling(?) again. It burns & feels like a thumb being pushed into my throat. My goiter w/two nodules was confirmed by two different ultrasounds.
I also have a vitamin D deficiency, hasn't responded to prescription vit D that my doc has given me for 1yr now. B12 injections haven't helped, no dairy/gluten didn't help. I have Pcos too (no IR no type 2). Can't get in to a Homeopathic MD until October, don't know what else to do. -Any opinions, tips would be great, thank you.
