What causes frequent urination and burning sensation during urination?
Sorry to note your troublesome symptoms.
Sometimes when your thyroid medication dose is excessive, symptoms similar to the ones you are reporting can occur.
When I see someone like you in my practice, I typically order the following blood tests in addition to a detailed physical examination:
CBC (Complete Blood Count, also known as Hemogram; includes Hemoglobin, WBC and Platelet counts)
Electrolytes (Sodium and Potassium in particular)
HbA1c (Glycosylated Hemoglobin = your 3 month glucose average)
Liver function tests (SGOT , SGPT, Albumin, Bilirubin, Alkaline Phosphatase)
Kidney function tests (BUN, Creatinine)
25 hydroxy Vitamin D
None of these tests require any fasting and can be done at any time of the day
I just have all my blood work done in Feb and everything is ok. but I am going to see my GI doctor this afternoon and ask for a copy of a blood work result and I will write you more and see if I need to repeat the test that you mentioned above. I suspect it is thyroid problems, but how can you explain this consistent sore throat? I am seeing and ear, eye and nose doctor but it is not until April. thanks Dr. Topiwala. will get back to you after I see the doctor today.
I got my blood work back today which is collected on Feb 10, 16. The negative result are as follow:
Sugar serum: 104
Total cholesterol: 216
Ferritin serum: 240
My Ferritin is extremely high, what does it mean? and what you can recommend me to do.
I am going for urine test, also Free T3 and Free T4, and A1C tomorrow.
Your answer is most appreciated.
