Question: Hi I took a blood test today. I forgot and took my thyronorm before going for the test. Will this materially alter my TSH reading?

Thanks

Brief Answer:
Medication Thyronorm

Detailed Answer:
Hi,


Thanks for your post on HealthcareMagic.



I do understand your pain and discomfort



As per your question I may say that as you had missed today's dose only so there will not be any difference at all if you missed for >15 days then TSH will increase from it's level in blood.



Hope that helps

Brief Answer:
Thyronorm

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for your follow up question,

As you have already taken Thyronorm, and gave your blood so there is no problem at all. As you are taking the medication regularly and it is a hormonal supplement. Take medications regularly and adjust the dose after the lab reports.


Hope this helps

Hi, I have been suffering from erosive gastritis for 2 years now. My attacks sometime lasts for hours and I get my attack almost everyday. Antacids don t seem to take effect most of the times. I sweat alot and cannot speak when I get my attack. I have done a number of test from endoscopy, blood test to heterophile antibody test, which all came back negative. They just say that I have a few ersoions in my stomache. I have taken all sorts of medications from esomoprezole for almost a year, to ranitidine , pylokit. I am taking vitcofol injection (10 shots), sanofide, emanzen, rabeprazole , zenpride, ofloxacin at the moment but It doesn t seem to help. My right breast (rib cage) hurts first and the pain spread around back. I asked the doctors why right breast hurts but they say it is not related to my erosive gastritis, but whenever I get the attack, my right breast hurts the most. I had my gal bladder removed a few years ago.

I am a 33 year old male and for the for the last month I have suffered from a change in bowel consistency. My bm s are extremely loose, watery and slimy. There are no obvious signs of blood but an awful lot of undigested food. I have seen small black particles but I assume this is food matter and not blood. Other symptoms include excessive flatulence and a very distinct rumbling/churning sensation in my stomach. My gp feels it points to IBS , however, I cannot pinpoint any trigger for this so am thinking other digestive orders. Especially concerned over Crohns or Cancer been a cause. Cleared of H Pylori infection or Coeliac . Routine blood test was normal. Can you shed any light on my problem? Thanks
