What's going on here?
Ok guys I am hypothyroid. I was diagnosed last October. It's been about a year and a half and I am still not adjusted, my doc and myself can't seem to get my lab's down. I have felt sick for years, GI trouble, fatigue, depression, weight gain, stiffness, losing hair, etc. I have always had this odd feeling in my left side, like a dull pressure/ache that coincided with when my GI trouble's started (alternating Diarrhea/Constipation, flatulence). I've been test for celiac, but didn't realize I wasn't supposed to be off gluten when I got the blood test so it came back negative except for my Giladin IgG which was only equivocal @ 11. My doc didn't know I was off gluten (for three weeks) when I took the original so he is sending my again. He is also having me get a HIDA scan, hep panel, vitamin and mineral panel, and an abdominal ultrasound.
The GI issues are killing me. Anyone have issues like these? If so what was causing it? I feel like I'm going nuts.
I also had a Urine Protein test which came back negative, my BUN, GFR and Creatinine were all within normal range. Only thing that was slightly elevated on my last blood test was my ALT @ 98 top of the range being 75.
