... jazzabella - did you know your gp was moving to America? sometimes one good doctor knows another good doctor and can refer someone else equally as good. I'm sure you have learnt a lot so as to enable you to weed out the bad gp's. I couldn't find a good gp or specialist. I had a range of symptoms but my main one which bothered me was abnormal hair shedding. I found... (34 replies)
... Oh, how very frustrating to say the least! And yes, it does take some time, and trial and error to find a good one. I always thought I had a "good" one until I had blood pressure issues, and all of the med side effects that come with that. The medical community in the US acknowledges that we have a Lyme epidemic along the coastal areas in the NE (there is some thought... (34 replies)
... Thanks for the info, I will look into it further. My GP is Great!! She's my 6th GP and we finally found someone who does everything in her power to solve problems and then last week she moved to America. Once again I am Without GP so i now need to find someone else. I have quite the team of specialists, some good, some not so that i ask for advice too, so i shall look into... (34 replies)
... robin63 - i have to get checked so regularly as i only began thyroid meds in may 2008. They start you off on a very low dose as they don't know how you will respond to it and this is why the tests are done so regularly. If they were to put you on one dosage of meds you could go from being hypo thyroid to hyper which would bring on a whole set of new issues. Once i get to... (34 replies)
... Wow, you must have a dynamo doc, but I'm not surprised as she is a woman, ;):angel: I wouldn't rule Lyme out just yet...from what I understand it is one of the most complex organisms of its type known and that there are several hundred strains (which is just one of many reasons it is difficult to test for). The strains vary depending on what area of the world one lives in.... (34 replies)
... This is all very interesting. As for the information on Borellia burgdorfei or gernii, i had actually discovered that during my own research and contacted my doctor when i discovered it. She thought that could be the cause and we went through a bunch of tests and research and she said that she could rule it out, and that it was very clearly not the cause of my iron... (34 replies)
... Audrey, That is very interesting to know. How do you convince the doctors to repeat the test so often? It would really be great if they came up with a system like checking your thyroid levels like you can blood sugars. If you could check it often we would know how it changes. I know I have alot of the symptoms that point to Thyroid but my bloodwork makes me look like nothing... (34 replies)
... robin63 - the endocrine system is changable. I recently had my dad do a bunch of tests and i forced his doctor to do the entire thyroid panel (TSH, T4, T3 and thyroid antibodies). His doctor agreed to do ALL the tests i had noted in my letter to him. In the end he only did a select few. I then had to force him to do the rest and he ended up doubling up on some of the...

... Thanks so much for the info Audrey that is very interesting about the iodine def. I just have to find a doctor that knows what they are dealing with and get on the right track with the test that need to be done and how often. Are you telling me that Thyroid test can be one thing one day and normal another. Is this why maybe mine is being misdiagnoised? Does the Endoctrine... (34 replies)
... Audrey--:wave:Vitamin B12 is absorbed in the GI tract (in the presence of gastric hydrochloric acid and pepsinogen) when IF, (which is secreted by the parietal cells in the lining of the stomach), binds to B12 in the small intestine where it is absorbed. Pernicious anemia (PA) is an autoimmune condition of anemia caused by B-12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency can have... (34 replies)
... Yes, it is a shame but because you're actively involved in your health care, you may find answers/treatments/cures...those who do not seek answers on their own, often end up with chronic illness and sometimes death, very high prices to pay for apathy. Bethsheba (34 replies)

... vit D, b12, zinc, folate, iodine. low iron can also be due to many things ranging from diet to gluten intolerance and a heap of other things inbetween. ... (9 replies)
... Audrey can you tell me what kind of doctor you see. I have got to find someone to help me get some answers and my general doctor is not that person. Any info would be appreciated. (34 replies)
... Nancy-- Celiac disease causes malabsorption within the small intestine. The "gold standard" is biopsy in this disease. In celiac disease the foods cause damage to the lining of the intestines. Where as PA is an autoimmune disease where the parietal cells in the stomach are attached by your own body's defense and you no longer make IF for absorbing B-12 within the small... (34 replies)
... I had an upper endoscopy two weeks ago; the GI doc told me she saw no evidence of Celiac or malabsorption in the small intestine, but she did take several biopsies. Everything came back clean, so that's more "final" than the blood tests, right? I wonder if one can still have PA but not have malabsorption issues? If not, then perhaps the doc that diagnosed me with PA a few... (34 replies)
... No, you didn't jump in I was talking to you, about the tests, LOL. Audrey already knows that stuff. It looks like you got all of them. I will post my results too for you to compare. TTG Anti, IGA--<3 range <5U/mL IGA serum--207 81-463mg/dL Gliadin anti (IGA)--5 <11 U/mL This is how my tests read. FLFLOWERGIRL:) (34 replies)
... I hope I didn't jump in on this post but yes, I would love to have the name of the 3 things they test for. I'm looking at my results (even though they say "pending") and it has 3 things listed (IGA serum, Gliadin AB IGA, Tissue Transglutaminase AB IGA). Thanks (34 replies)
