Dr. Shahzad MD :

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you had your cortisol level checked?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I mean your adrenal gland function checked?

JACUSTOMER-i8y1wp7l- :

no

Dr. Shahzad MD :

ESR and CRP?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Autoimmune profile?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that you should have your cortisol level checked as a priority. I would also like that you should have an autoimmune profile done to make sure that you do not have any autoimmune diseases that can also lead to these symptoms.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

ESR (sed rate) and CRP indicated if there is any inflammation going on in the body.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If the ESR or CRP is raised it may very well indicate some inflammatory process going on in your body such as any autoimmune process which can lead to the symptoms that you are having.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So the bottom line is that you need further hormonal tests.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would like to get to the bottom of your problem by digging further into your problem and performing.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have more questions.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Kindest Regards
