I have been going thru all my recent endo visit labs, thinking more about what you all said. On June 10th at 8AM I had these labs drawn Renin Activity=17.1 ng/ml/hr=range adult upright 0.5-4.0 ng/ml/hr Aldosterone=14.5 ng/dl=range 4.0-31 ng/dl Bilirubin=1.8mg/dl=range 0.2-1.3 MCH=33.5pg=range 27-31 ATCH(PLASMA)=27pg/ml=range7-69 ****FSH(serum) 0.5 IU/L=range 1.5-12.4**** ****LUTEINIZING HORMONE=<0.1 IU/L range 1.7-8.6 He said the FSH and LH were really ok, results were due to testosterone injections Then again on July 2nd at 11:40am I had these labs drawn IGF-1 195 ng/ml range 66-296 Renin Activity 24.9 ng/ml/hr Aldosterone 10.2 ng/dl Rolling time back a few months, a ct scan of lower torso showed a "scar" on right kidney. 2.5 weeks later something called an MRA of the renal arteries showed a 15mm cyst or mass on right kidney, (since the renin and blood pressure continued to increase, and pheo tests showed nothing, an ultrasound was ordered 2 weeks later of both kidneys) Right kidney showed a 1.2cm x 1.9cm cyst or mass and a "cystic structure in right calix" I was referred to a urologist, he looked at the ct's, mra's, ultrasound and said it looked like normal cysts to him, not to worry, he also did a prostate exam. He noted a 2mm "something" inside the colon. He suggested a colonoscopy, I have not got that lined up yet. I feel so drained, and very worried, so I ask for a referral to a specialist. He sent me to Dr. Hamal in Winston Salem. He said he looked at films, and I had cyst. Not to worry, check on it once a year. He spent less than 5 minutes with me. He said the cysts had nothing to do with how I felt. My GP here in town has agreed to have the kidney checked via ultrasound again on October 30, to check for changes. I have had most every blood test you could imagine. My blood pressure is still midline high with 5 meds per day to keep it down. I really think the hydrocortisone makes it go up, but I promise I will take at least 20mg per day since you think it is needed. I cannot take flornif, that will really make my bp high.
