Maddison's lab work came back surprisingly fine, Dr D was shocked. We can't understand how her Thyroid levels are good, despite her symptoms and weight gain. We were both sure the problem laid within the Thyroid. Its good to hear Maddison's HDL (good cholesterol) is 90, which in my understanding means she is "protected" as far as a heart health where Diabetes is concerned. THANK GOD. We are still waiting for Maddison's bone age result....in years past Maddison's bone age was delayed by almost 3 years. No surprise since she was considered "failure to thrive" starting at age 5 months. (I was breast feeding after having masses removed that minimized milk production!)
So, here we are back to square one. No antibodies for Celiac either. BUT, Dr D and I discussed the need for an Endoscopy because Maddison never follows the books and never has shown any Diabetes antibodies either. -Sigh- I called to schedule the scope right after speaking to Dr D. Not a fun way to start your summer!
All the symptoms Maddison has are NOT normal. Tiredness, a decreased mental work capacity, weakened concentration and memory, irritability and depression. Dental enamel defects....Stomach aches, headaches, constipation, skin irritations....All symptoms point to Celiac but I cant help but hope maybe its something easier. Maybe Maddison has a vitamin deficiency? That would be much easier to handle than Celiac, for sure. So, here I am today feeling more confused than ever. I was hoping to find an answer so we could correct the issue and move forward. -Sigh-
