Got new blood work results & meds


Recommended Posts

LLMD called and she has low vit D and Elevated Reverse T3. Not sure what that means. But we have meds comming. Also, her liver functions are elevated so they are faxing them to the Pandas doc and they want him to fax any blood work that he has done. So, now I'm worred again... Could the T3 have anything to do with her weight gain?

 

But I do have some more good news tht I want to share :)For the first time in 9months my child had her best friend Gary come over today to visit! The first time she has talked to him since! And that sweet boy took off his shoes and socks and put on the flip flops she gave him! (ocd rules) LOL I am taking them both swimming tomarro and I am so excited. Did I post here about that she let me take her swimming to a public pool last Monday that she had deemed contaminated? I was so happy to report that to Dr.J :)

 

So I guess I'm both happy and terrified today

 

Can I have any thoughts on the bloodwork?

Decreased vitamin D levels are common in the population. They are even more common in Lyme patients. My daughter and I both test low. Being outside some will help as well.

 

Did you receive any more info. on the reverse T3? Are they running additional Thyroid tests? Also, I think low levels of Selenium can play a role, not sure though.

 

Enjoy your day at the pool! I'm so happy to hear you are seeing some improvements!!

 

edit- I forgot to mention that yes the weight gain could be from the elevated reverse T3. Hypothyroidism can cause weight gain and elevated liver functions.

Thanks, we did not get to go today because we have storms but I get to take them both tomarro. Selenium is what they are ordering and they said they would retest when we seem them in August. That being said, they were contacting the Pandas doc so I may be having to get her other testing done. Just sitting here waiting by the phone for one of them to call me.
