  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I just received my last two years of blood work from my doc and I see that my liver panel is completely off and has gotten worse over the last year. Also, my bilirubin in elevated and my white and red blood cells are low. Does anyone have any input regarding the liver issues? Is this normal with celiac? I'm sure the red means I am anemic but not sure about the white. Thanks for any guidance!!!!
  3. Thank you so much for the helpful information and I will pass this on to my doc today. I will keep you all posted of any info that I receive.
  4. Hi! I was diagnosed with Celiac about 2 and 1/2 years ago. Since then, my weight has gone up and down, bouts of depression, node on thyroid, visibly enlarged thyroid, high cholesterol levels, T3 levels out of range, etc. From my own research, these seem to be the signs of hypothyroidism or Hashimoto's. I have been through testing before, but nothing ever came of it or they said I was OK. I am going through another active phase right now and need guidance with specific testing from my endocrinologist who is not familiar with celiac. I would like to know what levels need to be tested. The ones I have found online are: TSH Free T3 (Is this different than just a T3 test?) Free T4 (Is this different than just a T4 test?) Thyroid Test Hormone Thyroid antiperoxidase antibody test Thyroglobulin (are there other antibody tests?) What is T3 uptake? What do you think? Did I miss anything? Any guidance? I'm at my witts end!! It just doesn't make sense that I can lift weights and do cardio 5-6 days/week and barely lose weight. I can and do put on muscle though--weird! I am exhausted and depressed all the time too! Thank you for any info that you would have!!
