I don't have the actual counts yet, but the nurse called me today and advised that my ultrasounds came back normal. My thyroid is on the "low side of normal". My Vitamin B12 was fine, but my Vitamin D was so low that I do have to go on medication for it. Every woman in my family has low Vitamin D so that did not surprise me.

Did they test you for Hashimotos Thyroid? It's called a TPO Ab blood test.

And by low - they mean low performance as in your tsh was high or did they mean over performance as in your tsh was low?

high tsh=hypothyroid
low tsh = hyperthyroid

Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.
Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND
.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).

Genetic tests reveal half DQ2, half DQ8 - I'm a weird bird!

You need that Hashis test if your tsh was high.

You need more b's run.

You need a full iron panel.

Remind me what they tested for Celiac? Was it just one or two tests or the full panels?

Before you let them write you off on Celiac, and before you go gluten-free get ALL of these tests you haven't already had:

Plus the vitamin levels, plus the tpo.

And get the rash biopsied.
