My mum has an underactive thyroid and has for years as well as Hashimotos and homocysteinaemia and haemocromatosis. Today on some routine tests it says in the clinical notes:
Marked homocysteinamia. Vitamin defiency (vitamins b12, b6 and folate). Hypothyroidism (because of her taking her thyroid tablets it sometimes comes up a hypo). Renal failure. Genetic metabolic defects.
Her cardiovascular risk levelled very high risk as her homocysteine levels were measured at 37.1 when the range is (5-15).
This is also mentioned in her liver health notes with low albumin at 33 when recommended is (35-50).
Does this mean she has renal failure? What steps would you recommend over the next two days? As it’s the weekend, the referral will arrive at the specialists office on Monday and obviously this has caused a lot of concern.
