Hello all! So since i was 14 i have suffered from many problems.
Firstly, some basic stuff:
i was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries at 14, extreme period pain.
My insulin levels are always high, above normal. 17 iu/mL, should be 10 or less
My blood sugar is always low in the morning (3 - 4.5, should be 4.5-7)
I have bad skin, excessively oily and acne all over.
I have no control over my weight, even though i exercise regularly and eat relatively healthy and consistently.
What i am concerned about is my blood test results.
My albumin levels are high (50 g/L) and my Globulin levels are low (22 g/L).
There is protein in my urine too. I always get urinary tract infections or tract discomfort.
My MCV 26.9 pg, not too bad only just below normal.
I am extremely frustrated and upset that every doctor is just brushing this off and not listening to the amount of discomfort I'm in with life in general. Could somebody please help me =[ i can't put up with being ignored anymore.
swear I'm not a hypochondriac, just really concerned and feeling sick all the time. Ive got no answers so far from doctors here. Is there a link to all of my symptoms?
Id appreciate some suggestions or clues. Thank you!!
Hang in there. I know how you feel. I have my own battle with deficiencies in B12, vitamin D, and iron and it continues and I have been fighting fatigue for 18 months. I also have blood tests that come back with abnormalties, and I also fight with my weight no matter what and it is so easy for the doctors to blow it off due to our weight. My doctors do not take it seriously at all, but I am pushing to figure it out, I do my own research online, Webmd.com is a good one. I am pushing my doctor into sending me to specialists that could help me, and lastly, I am finding a new doctor that will take me seriously and not treat me like I am a hypochondriac. Try going to a specialist that deals with blood itself. Just be pushy, don't back down and give in, push your doctor or go to another one. We know our bodies and know when something is not right.
