Smile I'm new, I'm confused, I'm a fun person and HELP PLZ

I'm too old and tired to be this confused. I don't know what I have... or don't have regarding these labs LOLOL... except a headache

I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I'm sorry that my 1st post is one asking for help. I have a lot of health issues and just spent 20 days out of 30 during 2 trips to the ER/hospitalizations. I have lots more recent labs if more information is needed.

About 20 years ago, I had what was then called Non A/ Non B hepatitis and have had maybe 2-3 swollen livers since that time and none recently at all.

Here are the lab results I just got on Thursday. My 2 doctors, Endro and Internist are out of town until next week so I won't have any information from them until they return.

Thanks in advance for any helps or insights.

Re: I'm new, I'm confused, I'm a fun person and HELP PLZ

The only thyroid test on there is TSH. At .39, it's very low-normal, which could mean you're leaning toward hyperthyroidism. Or not, because TSH alone is not a very valuable test. Can't help you with the meaning of those other results, sorry.

If you're having symptoms that could be related to either hypo- or hyperthyroidism, you need more thyroid-specific tests. Insist on another TSH, free T4, free T3, and TSI antibodies testing. If you think your symptoms seem more hypo-like [There's a comprehensive list in our "Thyroid Information" sticky thread.], also ask for TPO and Tg antibody tests.

OH..... I'm sorry about listing test info that isn't thyroid related. I thought it was from what the Dr was telling me about the severe itching/rashes I've had non stop for several months. ( I told you I was new and confused LOLOL )

I'll have to find out what type of tests these are so I can find out more about them as one is being considered abnormal.

I appreciate your commenting on this post. Had you not, I wouldn't have known my error.
I also appreciate your comment(s) regarding the TSH test. I'm guessing this could be part of the reason I've lost 1/2 my hair in the past 3 months. My hairdresser was the first to point it out and I've been losing hair daily like I've never seen before.

Again, thank you.
