    Question This is weirder than I thought and I have NO clue!

    I got the results of my further blood tests with the new family doctor. (Recap....previous doctor said I am depressed and perimenopausal!). I am awaiting an endo appt. on 10/09.

    The new doc didn't do thyroid tests again but did Ferritin again as well as others.

    These were irregular:

    WBC H 11.2 (4-10)
    Platelets H 411 (150-400)
    Diff (Abs)
    Polys-auto H 8.15 (2-7.5)

    Ferritin 24 (10-291) Same as last time....not out of range but TOO low

    Estradiol 33 (Exactly mid cycle, I think, 14 days from P start)

    (menstruating females - midcycle 150-528)
    (menopausal untreated 0-31)


    FSH (both tests exactly 15 days post start of P)
    08/16/07 7.8 (midcycle 3.4-33.4)
    09/24/07 47.1 (midcycle 3.4-33.4)

    Vitamin D 19.9 (32-100)

    Other numbers for reference:

    Previous TSH .65 (1995) .87 (2003) 1.93 (2006) .793 (8/10/07)

    End of August:
    TSH 1.516 (.35-5.5)
    Free T3 2.5 (2.3-4.2)
    Free T4 .97 (.61-1.76)

    Total T4 5.7 (4.5-12)
    T3 Uptake 32 (24-39)
    Free Thyroxine Index 1.8 (1.2-4.9)

    TPO Ab 21 (0-34)
    Antithyroglobulin Ab (Tg Ab) 22 (0-40)

    Ferritin 24 (10-291)

    Is there ANYONE who has any experience with the numbers? Is there a relationship between low Estradiol and High FSH. How about low Ferritin and low Vitamin D? And what the heck are polys-auto and what does it mean when they are higher than normal?

    Does any of this look like hypopituitarism?

    Thanks everyone! Hoppy
