I was dx hypo thyroid and believe I have reach my optimal dosage at 90 mcg Armour daily - so no worries there.
My doc recently performed additional tests (with fasting morning bloodwork) - see below out of range results:
Cortisol = 31.3 (range 6.2-19.4)
Ferritin = 194 (range 13-150)
B12 = 1046 (range 211-946)
I am a little concerned after doing some online research about Cushings because my grandmother (from the time she was in her early 30's) had a large hump between her upper back and neck (we always assumed she had osteoporosis even though she never broke a bone, nor went to the doctor for testing). I am reading that Cushings can be hereditary, just as thyroid issues can be. Also, my mother has a blood disorder called haemochromatosis that is also supposed to be hereditary. She has to give blood to keep her iron levels down. I am hoping that I am not in the beginning stages of either of these conditions but in my family, the apple never falls too far from the tree...
Does anyone have any insight/input regarding my lab results?
