New lab tests

Recommended Posts

mortis505

Well I decided to get into the endo dept at the VA. He wanted some baselines(namely a C-peptide) so I asked if he would authorize a GAD test. First time a VA doc has said yes.

 

C-peptide came back as low but GAD was "very high". He wanted to test Cortisole and I wanted THS, TS3/TS4. He tested it all. :top:

 

He now thinks that I may also have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.

 

I start taking a new pill next week.

 

Isn't there a rule, 3 autoimmune diseases and you get a set of steak knives.:laugh::vroam:

I've always subscribed to the car "lemon law" rule. 3 chronic illnesses and you get to trade in your body for a new one! :D

 

I'm glad you got a diagnosis! My husband has hypothyroidism and while getting diagnosed was a blow, after a year on meds he is feeling like a normal person for the first time in years.
