Please! I finally after waiting 18 days got my lab results back. They were mailed too me yesterday. I called my Endo's office, and we discussed them over the phone. The nurse told me that I am Hypo, I think she called it Hashimoto's. So she called in a script for me.. Well when looking at the script....They perscribed Spironolactone, I KNOW this medication.. I also have PCOS/IR, so this med is mentioned all over one of the PCOS boards I belong too. It is used too help lower androgen levels in PCOS, and I guess is supposed too help with hair loss, but if my androgen level was normal, wouldn't there be another cause for hair loss. However according too my results, all Androgen levels were normal.
Most of the results run were Hormone related, and ones related too PCOS. IS this med used for treating HypoThyroid?
Here are my results
TSH Lab Range ( Normal .45-5.50 ).......2.27
Free T4 Lab Range ( Normal 0.9-1.8 )....1.0
Free T3 Lab Range ( Normal 2.3-4.2 ).....2.9
Total T3 Lab Range ( Normal .50-1.81 ).....1.68
Thyroid Antibodies ( There is no value listed for this,and all it says is *ELEVATED* )
So on the bottom of the results, The Endo writes, and I quote... Thyroid Levels actually Low, mid/normal. Antibodies too thyroid present. Then he says....Could aslo push Thyroid levels higher and see if that helps with any of your syptoms..
I am confused because I have no idea how too push them higher, I was not givin any med for this. Should I call his office about this?
What do you all make of these results.. I am so confused!
Now My insulin and Blood sugar were elevated too, but other then THIS.. All other results were NORMAL.
