Non-DGL root is needed to raise cortisol. Your improvement is due to something else, unless you have a digestive/gastro issue you don't know about that was contributing to your fatigue, and DGL is helping with that.

I havenít been tested for vitamin d but Iím always doing stuff outside is almost impossible for me to have vitamin d deficiency as 3 years ago I would always be inside the house and never felt tired and had more energy than now

It has to be something related to my sleep

Anyway yeah Iíd rather pay for my own test though my insurance will start soon, I know how doctors can be a pain in the ass when it comes to agreeing to do a test for you, for example like thyroid, many doctors wouldnít have done a full panel like I did, they would have just tested for t3 and t4

I knew this and read of people experiecing this with doctors not willing to do full panels thatís why I paid for mine out of pocket rather the deal with their bs conservatism
Have you thought about talking to a Psychiatrist??

It looks pretty good, OP. You should have included Anti-Thyroglobulin, too (the other thyroid antibody). Still. we can probably assume it's ok, given these results. That's a REALLY good result for your Anti-Thyroid TPO!

How much did this test cost, if you don't mind my asking? My current insurance only pays for one thyroid panel (including antibodies) per year, and I need to test twice/year, so I'm wondering what it would cost me out-of-pocket.

This thyroid panel was $140 at a near lab test, which is very convenient since is a small company, no lines and results are emailed quickly. This test didn't include thyroglobulin, but there is one separately, that costs $50. Not sure if worth doing that in my case.

My mom told me she has low thyroid, where your immune system attacks your thyroid, also know as hashimotos, she takes meds for it, that's why I did the test. Not cheap, but considering my mom has this condition, I needed to know

I didn't have insurance, but even if I had, a doctor probably wouldn't have sent me for full panel. I read stories of people not having full panels done, because their doctor didn't want to order one for them.

My only concern here is that I think is possible to have low to no level of anti thyroid TPO, but you anti thyroglobulin are high, and now you're diagnosed as hashimoto.

This is true, actually. Your TSH isn't elevated, though, which it would be, if you had Hashimoto's.

Have you considered other causes for your fatigue? Low B-12? That's fairly common in women. It can lead to depression.

Sleep apnea could have a variety of causes. Low adrenal hormone levels (have you been subjected to undue stress in the last year or two?(A move, job loss, new job, divorce, wedding/marriage, working 2 jobs, death of a loved one, victim of crime?) You could look for a dentist, who specializes in diagnosing and treating apnea that relates to the position of tongue at night, obstructing your windpipe. How old are you? Estrogen loss causes snoring and sometimes--apnea in older women.

That's all I've got, off the top of my head, at the moment.

OK, so testosterone and HGH loss cause snoring and sleep apnea in men, around middle age, though the OP has a ways to go, yet, age-wise.

OP, no Affordable Care Act insurance? You're not eligible, or it costs too much?

TPO!

.

Tests for the immune globulins are of academic interest, but don't influence treatment in the least. No need to get any of them done.




Also, no need to do testosterone levels either. The normal range is so great that a single test is meaningless, and even in a guy followed over several years and found to have falling levels, risks of accelerating CAD & prostate ca outweigh any benefits of replacement therapy. Don't confuse pooping out easily as you age with pathology requiring treatment.


Americans always seem to want to find refuge from their inadequacies in pills.
