I went to my gp a week ago due to a loss of appetite. It has been steadily decreasing over 6/8 weeks, but for the last 2 weeks it has completely gone and I have no desire to eat at all. When I do eat I can only manage a very small amount before feeling very full. My gp did a urine test and found very large amounts of protein and blood. I was sent to hosptial for renal function tests the same day but they came back ok (they also tested my liver function which was fine too)
I've since been put on antibiotics in case it is a uti, although I have no symptoms - this is day 2 of ab's. I've had blood work done which showed my thyroid function is normal, but it did show I have raised white cell count (54 - I read the normal range is 4-10?)
I'm a 27 yr old female, and I've been having increasingly heavy periods for the last year or so but no other symptoms I can relate to this apart from fatigue.
Anybody got any ideas what this could be? I am waiting for a referal to the neuropathy (sp) dept and a scan of my kidneys, but seeing as the bloods came back ok for kidney function I thought it would be ruled out?
