Creatinine is 1.1 and my TSH is 6.18 does this indicate a thyroid problem?

Just received my bloodwork test results. My BUN is 25 , my Creatinine is 1.1 and my TSH is 6.18. I’m taking 50 mcg of Levothyroxine. Does this indicate a thyroid problem or something wrong with my kidney. Last year everything was normal and I’ve been taking Levothyroxin for around 8 years. Does my dose simply need to be increased or am I in big trouble..

I have high GGT Gamma-Glutamyl Transferase over almost 1 year….Around 200 to 500?

Hi doctor….I have high GGT over almost 1 year….Around 200 to 500…I had ultrasoud and it was OK.However, last month I had MRCP and fibro liver scan…There is fluid-fluid level seen in gallbladder, but no filling defect is seen. And small nodule seen aterior to the spleen, is likely splenoculum.. The other abnormal test was AST (until 70) and ALT (until 90). I have been cleared from wilson disease also. I have itchy also on skin, and some big acne. What disease actually I may have from symptoms above? I have been hospitalized three times, but until now doctor suspects that sludge gallbladder. I have been taking heptral 1200 mg daily for 6 months, and ursofalk 1000 mg daily for 2 weeks. I have been eating healthy like fish and chicken steam. No smoker and no alcohol. Please help me.. I am so stress as I have nausea and headache all the times…. Many thanks for your help..

My heart beats feel funny/ inconsistent bpm goes down to around 35 bpm?

I usually have a low bpm usually in the 60s. I have noticed in the last few days that my heart beats feel funny/ inconsistent. It’s not all the time but it’s getting a little more frequent. I have a bpm monitor so I’ve been monitoring myself today. When I feel the inconsistent beats my bpm goes down to around 35 bpm give or take and then a few minutes later it shoots up to around 78 bpm. A few minutes after that it goes back to around 65-68 which is normal for me. Should I seek medical attention ASAP?

My daughter, 17, is suffering from; leg muscle cramps?

We are frustrated, in and out of doctors offices for 3 months now. My daughter, 17, is suffering from; leg muscle cramps (12 months plus, relieved with iron, doctor told us to take her off the iron because of nausea, now the cramps are back, immediately after stopping iron), daily outbreaks of hives, diarrhea, nausea with vomiting, low grade fever, and, a new symptom, heartburn. She must have given over a quart of blood for tests so far. All the Doctors tell us is that the blood work was fine, and leave it at that. Her white cell count has been high, a couple of times. She has been treated with antibiotics, iron supplements and calcium supplements. In fact, when the vomiting and diarrhea started, we were told, “It probably isn’t even related.” even though these were symptoms they seem to really be concerned about at first, almost relieved when we told them no. The nausea has always been there, with occasional vomiting, the frequent vomiting is a new development.

I had an aortic heart valve transplant and before that, my B/P was normal, but since the transplant, my blood pressure is running on the high side?

I had an aortic heart valve transplant and before that, my B/P was normal, but since the transplant, my blood pressure is running on the high side…So my heart Doctor changed me from 20 mgs. of lisiinipril to 40 mgs P/day…It doesn’t seem to have helped that much soo I wondered if, by me taking 20 mgs, in the AM and 20 mgs in the PM would not be good enough and that I should take the 40 mgs. alll at once in the AM?…Would that make a difference? My heart Doctor is on vacation so, thought I would ask you folks what you think…

I have severe acid reflux?

I have severe acid reflux and after years of conventional treatment that has failed. I have been booked in for a nerve block. I wanted to know what is the difference between a cephalic and splanchnic nerve block? Is there a difference? which is safer? I read in a journal that cephalic nerve block can lead to diarrhoea and there have been few reported deaths. It seems to be one of the risks involved?

Is this the case? Does the same risk exist with the splanchnic nerve block?

Thanks

My mom was diagnosed with meningiomas just a couple of days ago, is it safe for her to take a flight?

My mom is about to take a flight of about 4 hours. She was diagnosed with meningiomas just a couple of days ago, the tumor was of size 5.8 cm, situated at right front temporal. I was wondering if it is safe for her to take the flight because I read that people with brain tumor were not advised to fly. I am not sure if she should take the flight. She has recent become sensitive to buses on bumpy road, but she is not bothered at all if buses is on the highway or better roads or have any car ride. I suppose that the tumor may have caused this problem. But I could be wrong on this. In any case, I would like to know if it is safe for her to take the flight. Any precaution or medicine for her on the trip?
