I have been recently diagnosed with Hashimoto. I tend to eat a lot more protein than fat and of course carbs. I just prefer protein--keeps me full. Therefore, I understand the BUN #s being off. BUT could this be causing my body to attack itself? Looking over my blood work results I realized the following are way out of the norms:
BUN 28 (high) BUN/Creatinine Ratio 40 (high) Cholesterol 259 (high) HDL 89(high) LDL 159(high) RATIO 1.8 (NORMAL) Segs 48.9 (low)
Thanking you in advance for any input.
Wouldn't Hashimoto's show up in ANA Direct (antinuclear antibodies)? Or is there a specific antibody test for Hashimoto's? Ok, wait, you're diagnosed with that already. How was it diagnosed? Through TSH/T3/T4 numbers of with an antibody test?
