I saw my dermatologist today and I really do love this lady. I am not upset with her in the least, what I am upset about is my lab results! She did a fairly good blood panel on me in June and I got the results today. We had both expected my thyroid to come back low and it didnt so we are going to recheck it in 3 months. We both think there is something odd about it not coming back low because that would be the most logical explanation for dry hair and skin and having hair that is falling out. But...I had some other somewhat alarming results on this bloodwork. My whole CBC panel was fine, its on the metabolic panel that stuffed cropped up on. My Glucose level was slightly elevated and I hadnt eaten before I got to that appointment. My serum Creatinine was high. My eGFR was low. My serum Chloride is high and my Carbon dioxide is low. Some of these things, heck most of them, are pointing to I have now developed problems with my kidneys. Probably from all of the medications I am on. I have a doctor visit with my primary tomorrow. Will see what he says. Sigh. This I so did not need!
