I posted this elsewhere, but no replies yet. Trying again!
I had some blood work done last week. The doctor tested my thyroid levels, which he didn't even tell me he was doing. They called me today and want me to come in to discuss my results. Apparently, something is abnormal.
Basically my question is, can the results of my blood work be affected by the fact that I'm on this diet right now? Eating so few calories, is there a possibility that my thyroid might be sluggish? And/or would the HCG skew my results in any way? Just curious because I didn't tell this doctor I'm on this diet. Didn't want to hear the lecture and wasn't in the mood to defend what I'm doing.
And just in case anyone is knowledgeable on this subject, this is what they told me over the phone - TSH: 1.2 T3 free: 1.6 T4 free: 1.24
Thanks in advance for your help!
