I'm seeing an internist to try and figure out what is going on with me, and he did a whole boatload of lab tests and sent me the results. I have some indicators of diabetes and a lot of symptoms (and family history) of hypothyroidism. The only thing that concerns me is that my thyroid functions are as follows:
Free t3 4.77 ph/ml
Free t4 1.30 ng/ml
TSH 1.540 ulU/ml
The results said "high" for my t3, but my doctor crossed it out and wrote "okay."
Other things highlighted in my results include:
Trace amounts of protein in my urine
Moderate contaminants/organisms after 48hrs of watching my urine
HGB 15.2 (HIGH)
hs-CRP 23.9 (HIGH)
GLUCOSE 113 (HIGH)
A/G RATIO 1.09 (LOW)
TRIGLYCERIDE 161 (HIGH)
CHOLESTEROL 190 (High side of normal)
I was recently treated for bacterial vaginitis and a sinus infection, but I wasn't diagnosed until a week or so after the tests were done. I don't know if that accounts for any of the results because none of the paperwork explains what it means...
I'm hoping he will talk to me about what all this means, but just in case, I would really appreciate if anyone who understands the above information could explain. If you need more results, I have 3 pages of them...
