Getting More and More Sore...
Had a look at the requisition form and my rheumatologist is checking everything iron-related under the sun:
• Vitamin B12
• TIBC (iron binding capacity)
• TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone)
I guess the last one can affect your iron/hemoglobin levels – can't find a connection and am too tired to look further. Sorry!
I think she was running the usual AST and ALT liver tests again, too.
There might have been others, but that's all I remember...
