Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Coco's bald head

Got Coco's Chem and CBC back today. Many other values in her blood work are abnormal. Are some of these other values ever thrown off by adrenal gland disease or is it likely something else is going on?

Her ALT was high at 342 (10-280) U/L

Alkaline Phosphatase high 81 (15-45) U/L

Phosphorus low 2.1 (4.2-8.5) mg/dL

Her glucose was low at 30 (80-120), but she's never shown symptoms of low blood sugar so they said they would recheck it when she comes back.

And in her CBC she has a few things showing her to be a little dehydrated.

So far we're going with surgery. So while she's opened up they can look for other clues, and a biopsy of the liver was recommended. But if there are any other results of the panel that may be helpful in determining what else might be going on please let me know and I will post them.

Thank You,

> My Coco's hair keeps thinning on the top of her head. It's been thin since the beginning of winter but looks more and more sparse lately, almost bald. She has no hair loss anywhere else, and no other symptoms of adrenal. She's not itchy but she does love to lie on her back and rub her head against things. Could this be the reason?
