Hi everyone. A little about me first. I'm a 35 year old woman. 133 lbs. Non smoker. Occasional wine drinker.
So in the past 2 months or so I've been very dizzy and weak off and on. In the past 3 weeks I have been very sick with diarrhea and still have the extreme dizziness, fatigue and weight loss. 15 lbs in 3 weeks. Abdominal discomfort. Ive had numerous blood tests and everything has always been normal. I have also had CT of abdomen, ultrasound of abdomen. All they found was gallstones. Ive been treated with flagyl because my PCP thought maybe giardias was the cause. My stool samples came back negative.
My TSH has always been normal until two weeks ago. I'm all of a sudden very HYPER. TSH fell to .126.
Yesterday I was back in the ER for extreme dizziness and worsening diarrhea. My CBC was normal, hepatic function was normal but my Lipase level was 8. With the standard range being 11-82. Ive searched symptoms of lipase deficiency and dizziness, diarrhea are symptoms.
But what causes it?
I'm worried now about pancreatic malignancies. After doing a ton of research I cant find what would be any other reason would cause low lipase levels.
