TEST IV CASE ANALYSIS:

1.      WHAT FURTHER TESTS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND? DEFEND YOUR ANSWER.

FT3
FT4
TSH
THBR
CORTISOL

THE SYMPTOMS OF THE PATIENT MIMIC THAT OF A PERSON WITH THYROID AND ADRENAL DYSFUNCTION. SINCE THE LABORATORY RESULTS ARE ALL NORMAL, EXCEPT FOR HEMOGLOBIN, WHICH IS SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL VALUES FOR MALE, THE NEXT OPTION IS TO CONSIDER METABOLIC DISORDERS.

THE SLIGHTLY LOW HEMOGLOBIN VALUES OF THE PATIENT IS NOT CRITICAL BECAUSE THE BLOOD MORPHOLOGY SHOWED NORMAL CELLS, HENCE, ITS SLIGHTLY LOW VALUE  COULD BE BECAUSE OF LESS SERIOUS CAUSES LIKE MALNUTRITION, AND SIMILAR CASES.


2.      WHAT WOULD BE THE MOST LIKELY DIAGNOSIS? DEFEND YOUR ANSWER.

THE MOST LIKELY DIAGNOSIS WOULD BE HYPERTHYROIDISM AND HYPERADRENALISM, MOST LIKELY, GRAVE’S DISEASE.

THE OVERALL DATA OF THE PATIENT SHOULD BE COLLATED FIRST (HISTORY, PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS, LABORATORY RESULTS, AND OTHER DIAGNOSTICS TESTS) BEFORE COMING TO A CONCLUSION.


FOR THE RIA METHOD REFER TO NOTES.
