Life isn't so simple: There are many types of blood tests. Nobody does all the tests on each patient (that would consume all the world's medical resources). Screening tests for the more common problems or the more common blood test abnormalities are often done... and can rule out organ disorders that cause blood test abnormalities. Realize that a problem in an organ may or may not cause blood test changes. ...Read more

I have had appendix cancer that spread & thyroid cancer. My dad had pancreatic cancer. I am curious about men1/2 & endocrine cancers. I'm only 37...?

Likewise, the thyroid cancer in men syndromes is called meduallry carcinoma, which make up only about 10% of all thyroid cancers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What causes hypotension during exercise or during exposure to heat? Not dehydration, thyroid, cardiac, pulmonary, or endocrine. BP normal otherwise.
Vasodilation: Hypotension is by definition low BP and while BP may be normal you may experience lower BP relative to your normal when your vessels dilate in response to a rise in internal temperature. Cardiopulmonary, endocrine, anemia, dehydration and infection are potential causes, as are medication side effects.

Thyroid ultrasound that showed 3 indiscreet nodules. Largest 8mm. No calcification seen norm flow. Appt August with endocrin. I am worried. Thoughts?
Most likely benign: Most likely an incidental finding. Generally, only nodules >1 cm should be evaluated, since they have a greater potential to be clinically significant. Certain sonographic appearances are highly predictive of a benign nodule. A pure cystic nodule or a "spongiform appearance", aggregation of multiple microcystic components, are highly specific for benign nodules. Discuss specifics with you Doctor. ...Read more
Flu risks include endocrin disorders like diabetes. I have a low thyroid, so would this make me a 'high risk' of dying from h1n1? Why?

Serum calcium, parathyroid hormone levels, calcitonin, cea, pituitary hormones, pancreatic hormones (including insulin, glucagon, etc), and a variety of adrenal hormones (epinephrine, norepinephrine, metanephrines, dopa, and their metabolites). A full evaluation requires extensive testing, including stimulation tests. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Done an sgpt test and it says on the result that mine is 66 (ref: 9.00-52 u/l(h). Do i need to worry? I am drinking ptu (propylthiouracil) for my thyroidism continuously
