See your dr: Normal ranges of your blood test results can vary depending on the lab used; however, it seems that your serum iron level may be a little high. U may be taking too much extra iron b/c of being vegetarian. Hypothyroidism can also complicate the picture. It is best to inform your dr of all the meds you are taking and the doses. Make sure u eat a healthy diet. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
The thyroid gland is an endocrine organ located in the front part of the neck. Its role is to make thyroid hormones, which control the way cells use energy. Hyperthyroidism results when the thyroid gland is overactive and too much thyroid hormone is produced, which speeds up metabolism.

My liver enzymes have fluctuated between normal and mildly elevated over the past 2 yrs. The alt, ggtp, alkaline phos, bili, includiing the mcv. I also have hypothyroid disease and take armour thyroid. Should i be concerned?
Slightly: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your liver enzymes are slightly elevated. If you drink alcohol, stop entirely, if you are overweight, lose weight. Do not take Tylenol or related medications. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
