    Wife's blood tests - could someone give input!

    Hi guys,

    Wondering if someone could take a glance at my wifes bloodwork? I simply trust the opinions of many of you guys much more than the doctor she had to visit. Just for reference, she have Ulcerative Colitis and is having a flair up at the time of these blood tests.

    Thank you in advance!

    I don't know a lot about IBD - I know that you get a lot of movement of monocytes into damaged tissue, but I didn't think they were typically elevated - so hopefully someone else will comment about that.

    But the total T3 and T4 are in the bottom half of range, just, and TSH is elevated (the range for what is healthy varies a lot from country to country, and from clinician to clinician - so in some countries she would be borderline hypothyroid based on that measure alone), so that is worth watching and re-testing with next bloods. I would get free T3 and free T4 and check antibodies in case she is developing Hashimoto's. Hope that is of some help.
