Her previous lab work that was done in Nov 2016 showed T3 uptake of 28, T4 of 4, Free T4 of 4 and TSH Her tal Iron was 78, Iron binding capacity 423, percentSaturation 18 and Ferritin The hair loss never stopped however it got worse. Have you heard of something like this before? Endocrinologist or a Naturopathic Dr? Besides, we went back to the Dr.
