Haven't seen the Endo yet see

But what do you make of the labs? thanks!

Thyroglobulin Antibody <1.8 IU/ml range (<4.0)

Thyroglobulin, Tumor Marker 7 ng/ml reference value <=33

TSH L 0.13 range (0.27 – 4.20)

Thyroxine Free 1.19NG/DL range (0.93 – 1.70)

Free Triiodotothyronine 3.14PG/ML range (2.57 – 4.43)

Prolactin L 4.3NG/ML range (4.8 – 23.3)

ACTH 8 pg/ml range (6 – 58)

Cortisol Plasma 12.2 mcg/dl range (4.3 – 22.4)

Chloride H 110 MEQ/L range (95 – 107)

Called today to try to get my apptointment set up, and the scheduler told me July 1st. I broke down crying. My Mother died this morning and this was just one more straw on the camels back. So, I had her transfer me to his nurse's VM, hopefully I can get somewhere with that.

Re: new labs Midwest, what is your take?

So sorry to hear of the death of your mother. Mom's are the ones whom you have known and could count on literally all your life. I lost mine 16 years ago and remember my loss; even though it was a while ago for me, I can relate to your loss and send my condolences.

With such stress in your life right now your hormonal levels are bound to be off kilter. Finding the right thyroid dosages etc. right now will be difficult. Hopefully your doctor and nurse are sensitive to your situation right now and are willing to help you as best they can. If not please know you have people here on the thyroid board who are pulling for you!

May God be with you right now in your sorrow, and hopefully we will see you around the board with better news about your health very soon.

Re: new labs Midwest, what is your take?

All I can tell you about your labs is that you're hypothyroid, based on low-normal FT4/3 levels, and that your low TSH doesn't gibe with that. I don't know about the lumps and bumps, about the other hormones, et al. But the endo sounds thorough, and I'm sure he'll help you figure it all out.

One thing I do know about is how horribly rotten it feels to lose one's mother, because I've been there too. Please accept my sincere sympathy on your loss.
