I'm 39, have a horrible metabolism (eating more than 1,000 calories a day results in weight gain), I am sensitive to cold, my memory has gone down hill and my hair is falling out. I got blood work done but was told the doctor won't be available for two months to discuss it because she has other appointments. Here are the numbers I have questions about but she ran around 30 tests so if I didn't mention a test please ask me:
What do people think is the cause of the sympoms and the test results. I was told that in light of the ACTh test that she wants to run a dexasupression test next Monday. However, her secretary did not mention the other results that are high/low so I don't know what the results mean, if I should be concerned and how to fix whatever problem there is.
TSH 3.19 range .4 to 4
Free T4 1.21 range .89 to 1.76
Folate >20 range 1 to 15 HIGH
Thyroglobulin <1 range 1 to 84 LOW
ACTH <5 range 0 to 70 LOW
Anti-TPO AB 114 range 10 to 35 HIGH
Anti TG AB 298 range 20 to 40 HIGH
I thought that the TSH and T4 would not be normal based on my symptoms. Instead, test that I have no clue what they are for are either hig or low. The bottom two seem quite high.
