Hi All, I recently went to a hematologist for hair loss, low ferritin and low tibc which points to "anemia of chronic disease." my tibc has been low for years and years, ever since i started testing it. I also had undiagnosed giardia for 1-2 years and I treated that with 2 rounds of tindamax and over the summer my stool sample came back negative. before giardia i had ibs-c and now i have ibs-d. coincidentally or not, i have 24/7 paresthesias in both of my hands/arms from 2010 which i thought was caused by ehlers danlos syndrome and joint instability in my neck and shouldres, but tonight i received part of my labs back and i am freaking out. I was not fasting during these tests, but they told me that wouldn't matter? c3c 70 (90-100) c4c 11 (16-47) ch50 36 (31-60) he also ordered the following tests...which i haven't received yet cbc cmp ldh fe tibc saturation ferritin folate b12 retic esr crp SIEP ana with reflex ra factor ccp my crp has been tested several times and it was always low, ra factor..twice i think, both negative. on the plus side, i always knew having a very low tibc and low ferritin meant something bad/unusual...and i think i was right. what tests should i order next? i'm overwhelmed. thanks for listening.
