Referred me to an Endo AND a Rheumatologist
I’m 36 years old, and after several years of horrible fatigue, weight gain, joint pain, and just plain yuckiness, I finally demanded extensive bloodwork from my pcp ( I had requested before, but had been outright denied. ‘ you’re just a woman ‘ , ‘ you’re just getting older ‘….etc ?
After getting my results, my TSH was 4.75, TPO was 306. Severely deficient in Vit D ( 10 ) , and a positive RA Factor and positive ANA. Sed rate neg and c reactive protein neg.
My pcp had referred me to an Endo AND a Rheumatologist. I’m a little worried…anyone have bw results similar to this? Hashis and Hypothyroidism runs in my family but not RA or Lupus. That TPO is high enough to be a concern, right? The pcp said shed let rhe Endo do the other screenings ( t4, t3, reverse t3 and t4 ).
Thanks in advance for any advice and for listening to me ramble!
