I have bad health anxiety but had to have a testical torsion surgery if I had an illness would the hospital know about it from my blood tests for op?
I'm betting so: You already showed courage in writing healthtap, and I hope the torsion surgery was a success.

You have insight which is great. A course of cognitive-behavior therapy, rather than my reassurance, would be a great idea now. ...Read more

Why can kidney and liver function be tested by simple blood tests, but other organs cannot? Why can't all organs be tested this way? Just wondering

What are the signs of a child of four years old having a sluggish thyroid. He had blood tests that revealed he had a sluggish thyroid, he is thin and very active, the reason they did the blood work, is that they think he has ocd.
The signs and symptoms of "underactive thyroid" or hypothyroidism can vary depending on the levels of the thyroid hormones. At first it may be barely noticeable, but as the levels drop, more symptoms may appear. Common symptoms include fatigue, excessive sleepiness, weight gain, pale, dry skin, poor appetite, cold intolerance, thinning brittle hair and fingernails, constipation, hoarse voice, fullness in the neck, muscle aches or weakness, poor school performance and depression.
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune type of hypothyroidisim which is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in children and teens. 5-10% of people with this will have an increase in thyroid hormone before a decrease leading to symptoms such as hyperactivity, nervousness, difficulty sleeping, weight loss/poor growth, diarrhea, fatigue, palpitations, sweating/heat intolerance, and poor school performance.
Once diagnosed, patients thyroid hormone levels are followed closely so that the right amount of thyroid replacement hormone can be given in the form a medication. As the medication causes the hormone levels to return to normal, most symptoms disappear.
