Re: Still losing weight and hair

Thank you CancerBum! I was on synthroid for years for hypothyroidism. My doctors have always just tested TSH. I'm hoping my endocrinologist added free T3 and free T4 to my TSH blood test on the 15th. It's hard waiting to find out if all of this is due to hyperthyroidism. It's very frustrating! I'm s...

Re: Stool Antigen Test and colonoscopy

Thank you. When my GI did an upper endoscopy(gastroscopy) I don't think he took any biopsies. He only wants to check f or H Pylori because it can cause bloating, make me feel full, and can cause weight loss. I wish I didn't have to wait until October 28th for the colonoscopy but his receptionist sai...

Stool Antigen Test and colonoscopy

My GI said he would do a colonoscopy for my peace of mind. The colonoscopy isn't scheduled until October 28th because everything is very slow here. He's ordering a stool antigen test because he said that H Pylori could cause the bloating, feeling full all of the time and weight loss. He said once we...

Re: Still losing weight and hair

My kidney x-ray didn't show nephrocalcinosis yet the ultrasound did. It's confusing. The endocrinologist is just having me do 400iu of vitamin D once a week and if my symptoms don't get worse after two weeks then go up to 800iu a week. I know 1000 iu is standard but that makes me feel really awful s...

Re: Still losing weight and hair

Thank you Green Tea. I don't have a vehicle so when I had the gastric emptying test I stayed at the hospital the entire time. I went to the Nuclear Medicine department for the test. I was given oatmeal into which a radioactive liquid was injected. There were two small pieces of toast, a small carton...
