Hi,
I found this forum and I wanted to ask you what this lab result indicates. I went to the Dr 2 weeks ago for a physical and I have been EXTREMELY tired and weak for the last year. She ran TSH test then and it was normal 2.2 in a range of like 1-5. A few days later- I had a 2 hour period of being disoriented and drunken feeling and my BP was 88/58 and my temp was 96.9. I couldn't get my BP up with chicken bouillon and I called the Dr and she ran the following tests.

My Dr. is referring me to an Endo because of the Aldosterone levels she said. I got a copy of my labwork and it seems my thyroid is fine and my aldosterone is in range. But it looks to me like the 2 Anti tests are a hair above range. Let me know what you think and what these findings might indicate.

T3---- 112---- (60-181)

Free T4---- 1.2 ---- (0.9-1.8)

Anti-TPO-AB ---<5 ---- (0-4)
Negative---- <5
Indeterminate---5-10
Positive----->10

Anti-thyroglobilin AB---<25---(0-24)
Negative---<25
Indeterminant---25-38
Positive--->38

Cortisol,random---10.1---(5-23)

Aldosterone---<2---(2-16


And my symptoms are :extreme bone weary tiredness and weakness, dry gritty eyes, itchiness all over, and sensitive eyes to white things (like pages in books) My blood pressure is normally 110/70 and is now running in the 90/60's. My body temp was always 98.5 and now runs in the 97's all day long.

And I am the opposite now than I have been my whole life. I was always hyper and full of energy and coffee would make me zoooooooom!! Now coffee does absolutely nothing for me- no "pick me up" at all:( I have had insomnia for 41 years and now I can go right to sleep for the last year or so.

Thank you very much for any advice you can give me. I know with my cortisol levels being normal- that I probably don't have Addison's but this is the only forum I can find for adrenal glands.

Lori
